 Class schedule: 

  • Morning drop-off is between 8am and 9am.   With preparation, we can open a bit earlier and stay later as necessary.  

  • 1/2 day preschool is from 8am - 11:30am.  Full day preschool is from 8am - 2pm.  Afterschool is from 2-5pm.  

  • Full day children have the option of adding the afterschool program from 2pm - 5pm at a discount rate.  

  • You can enroll 5-days, or a few days a week, depending on availability, but a minimum of two days is required. 

  • Our current maximum capacity is 12 students during the school year and 16 during the summer.  By regulation, we are only alotted 2 children under two years old per caregiver.  When the preschool is at capacity we start a waiting list, however, all parents are required to visit Lovely Day Preschool prior to being placed on the waiting list to ensure that it is a good fit.   



First Impressions

Between 3 months and 12 months.

As the child's mind is taking in its first impressions, we can only strive as parents and caregivers to make sure that they are joyful and lovely.  As these young hearts need so much tender care, we have two spots available currently. 


Young Explorers

Between 12 months and 36 months.

They toddle, they jump and they run like a whirlwind!  This active time of life is fast moving and fun!   These young explorers make up the majority of our classroom.   


Great Minds

We say great minds because aren't they?

With so many wonderful 3-6 programs available in Ithaca we enroll this age group during the summer months.  However, if you are interested in keeping siblings together, or arriving from a foreign country, we will work with you and your child to create a positive learning environment.
