PRE-COTILLION & JUNIOR COTILLION PROGRAMS OFFERED
Pre-Cotillion I and II encourage children to be comfortable together, to make new friends, and to enjoy themselves. Through role-playing, hands-on activities, and storytelling in a peer group young ladies and gentlemen emerge from the program with the beginnings of confidence and pose that come from knowing what is and what is not appropriate behavior in a number of age-appropriate experiences. This program is offered to students K - 3rd. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and open to the first 18 children that register.
