Ones Program

Choose The Program That's Right For You!

Landmark Preschool - Redding offers two program options for our youngest learners:
  • The Fun for Ones program offers age-appropriate activities once a week for you and your little one aged 12 -24 months (by December 31, 2017).
  • The Stay and Play for Ones program offers a drop-off option two or three times a week for children who will be 18 months old and are walking by their first day of school.

Fun For Ones

In our Fun for Ones program, our youngest "students" learn together with a parent or caregiver about themselves and the world around them through exploration, play, music and the arts. Each fun-filled class will center around a different theme, and the associated activities will give you ideas that you can incorporate at home to help your child grow and develop. Each class time will be limited to eight participants per session, so register early to secure your child's place! A caregiver or parent must attend each class with the child. View our promotional flyer.
