Mini-Prep & Prep vs Academy
Mini-Prep and Prep run quarterly, making them more flexible while the Academy operates on a school year calendar, which tends to create consistency. Mini-Prep and Prep are often used as a pre-preschool, preschool supplement or preschool alternative.
Part time or Full day
Peekadoodle Prep and Peekadoodle Academy offer both part time and full day options. Students who attend AM classes have the option for Clubhouse until 1pm or Extended Care until 4:30 or 6:00pm. Students who attend PM classes have the option for Early Explorers from 8:30-12:30pm. Mini-Prep only offers a part time schedule.
Our school year calendar for the upcoming school year can be found online here.
Peekadoodle Mini-Prep, Prep and Academy parents receive a weekly newsletter, including a link to our photos from the week, a message from the director, an update from the teacher, notes from the Parents Association and a link to our most recent lunch menu. In addition, we are always available via phone, email, and in person for any other questions or thoughts.
