K'tanim Preschool at Congregation Beth El in Fairfield is accepting applications for the 2012-2013 school year.

Programs are planned for children ages one to five, the school said.

For children ages 3 and 4, optional lunch programs are available, along with enrichment classes including art, cooking and science.

For 1-year-olds, a Little Explorers class meets Fridays from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. Each child, with a parent or caregiver, explores toys and art materials. The program includes Shabbat snack, stories, music and playground activities.

In June, a two-week mini-camp is offered for children ages 3 through 5.

Sheila May, the school's director, has more 25 years experience as a preschool teacher and director, the school said, and staff is selected based on qualifications and philosophy that matches the school's.

Congregation Beth El is at 1200 Fairfield Woods Road, Fairfield.
