About Us

The Pied Piper School has been servicing local families and children since 1979. Our program is a blend of free play and structured time for children ages 18 months to 5. We cover all traditional nursery school curricula through music, art, theatre and dance. We offer 1/2 day sessions, full day sessions and extended care for children 18 months through Pre-K, and a full service after school program for all ages.

The Beginner Group is for children ages 18 months to 2 years, 9 months with a 5 to 1 student/teacher ratio.

The Intermediate Group is for children ages 3 – 4 years with a 7 to 1 student/teacher ratio.

The Pre-K Group is for children ages 4 – 5 years (entering Kindergarten the following fall) with a 8 to 1 student/teacher ratio.
