 OF TRANSFERS NEEDED AT THE START OF EACH SESSION AND THE UNCERTAINTY OF KNOWING IF YOUR CHILD IS READY
 FOR THE NEXT LEVEL. On the last two days (Thursday & Friday) of each two week sequence of classes, registration for the next session
 will take place at the lGHSCAC from 9:45 AM -12:45 PM and 4:00 PM-6:45 PM. no registration will be taken at the lGS Recreation
 office on these last two days of the session. Once a session has started only the Aquatic Supervisor may accept new registration. This may be
 done at the pool site. Classes not meeting minimum enrollments will be cancelled or combined with another class. Additional classes may be
 scheduled based upon community requests, instructor availability and pool space. nO ClASSES On FRIDAy, JUly 3rd.

 School year and Summer Programs. Over the years, the Los Gatos-Saratoga High School District’s Adult Education Division has main-
 tained a program of parent education with four independent nursery schools. Parent’s curriculum includes a study of preschool children at
 various levels of growth and development, foundations of mental health, and preparation for school.
 Our preschools offer balanced, developmentally appropriate curriculums led by credentialed teachers. Young children learn best through hands
 on play in a stimulating and nurturing environment. Program activities include circle and story time, dramatic play, music and movement,
 arts and crafts, cooking, science, gardening, outdoor play and exploration, and field trips. Children, aged 2 to 5 years, may attend 1-4 classes
 per week depending on their age. (This may vary from school to school) Scholarships are available. For details regarding these parent-child
 programs, please contact the nursery school.

These 50-minute dual immersion, bilingual classes introduce you
and your child to another language through the universal language
of music. No previous language experience is necessary. Young
children have an amazing ability to absorb languages and music.
Classes include songs and instruction in English and the target
language (Spanish, Mandarin or French) plus music from around
the world. Your child experiences a new language through songs,
chants, dance, and free play with age-appropriate instruments in
a fun and creative learning environment. Lots of rhythmic and
tonal play integrated with whole body movement and imaginative
improvisation provide a wonderful foundation for future musical,
linguistic, and intellectual growth. A $25 material fee for new stu-
dents is payable to instructor at first class. For more info or to
