About the program
The Massapequa High School Child Study Preschool Program is taught by Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher, Ms. Anna Fierro - Gregg. High school students that have successfully completed "Parenting and Child Development" will act as "teachers" in a preschool environment. The program is for children who are at least 3 years of age and potty-trained before the first day of classes.
There are two sessions available - both are on Tuesdays and Thursdays:
- AM session for 2022/23 will be 80 minutes between 9:15am and 11:15am

The 2022-2023 school year start date is December 1, 2022 (date subject to change) and ends around June 2, 2023. There is a short small group parent orientation session, typically in the November timeframe. Updates are emailed to participating families.
The program is for children from 3 to 5 years old:
