DRPNS starts signing children up in September, the year before they will attend (that is, we started signing children up for the 2021-2022 school year in September 2020). Our director will mail you a form which must be returned with a non-refundable $100.00 registration fee to hold your spot in the desired class. If a class is full, we do keep a waiting list and will immediately notify you if a spot should become available.
Please call our Director, Christy Phillips with any questions you may have, at 215-249-9497. We do check our messages periodically during the summer, so please do not hesitate to leave a message.
We appreciate your interest in our program and we look forward to meeting you and your child!
To help you get to know our classes we have complied a list of the most commonly asked questions.
Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.

The 4+ class also builds on all of the above skills, but our curriculum is based on a “Letter of the Week” approach. Our weekly letter is thoroughly explored, as the basis of many different kinds of activities. We move at a faster pace than the 4 year old class, as far as the presentation of concepts. We do include science, social studies, art, and literature-based activities.
Local trips vary according to the age groups. All classes
will go on different trips.
