Interested in exposing your child to concepts like physical expression, creativity, and world culture? Join us for the TPS Mini Masters Series!
Held the second Saturday of every month (October through March) for prospective students and families, these up-tempo classes with Prairie faculty will introduce children ages 1 to 3 to a variety of important concepts, while also affording parents and kids the chance to participate in some of Primary School’s favorite lessons!
All classes will begin at 8:30AM and typically last between 45 minutes and one hour. All Mini Masters will receive a snack and drink. Each class is $10 per child, but a special rate of $40 is available for anyone registering for the entire series prior to the October date.
While enrollment is open to all children ages 1-3, class activities will be best suited for those 2 and up. Please note: pre-registration is required for all classes. Unfortunately we can not accommodate drop-ins.
Class size is limited; registration for an upcoming class will open once the preceding class is concluded. To ensure the discounted $40 rate for all classes, a child must be registered for the full Mini Masters Series prior to October 12th.
