New Program – 2023 IPS Playgroup

The International Preschools (IPS) is excited to offer a new pre-separation class for children aged 16 to 24 months.

In 1963, IPS began as a playgroup serving the needs of young children of international families.  Over 60 years later, we continue to provide a nurturing, welcoming environment for all children and families. 

In this introduction to school, an experienced IPS teacher will facilitate structured free play, art projects, storytime, music and snack for your child. During the 90 minutes, children will learn how to come together as a group and become accustomed to routines.

Every child must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver for the entirety of each session. All adults must provide proof of COVID vaccination.

If a child misses a class, there can be no refund. There are times when a class may need to be canceled; IPS will make every effort to notify parents in advance and to reschedule the class.

We invite you to become a part of our community by joining the IPS Playgroup.

If you are interested in joining, please complete this form. Our Director of Admissions, Martha Smeaton, will contact you to complete registration.
