Half-Pint is learning, having fun, and understanding how to truly enjoy life. Our kids welcome the day with a smile every morning when they walk into school, and leave exhausted from all of the fun they've had with their friends and teachers. Half-Pint has been open for just about eighteen years, and each year has been a joy for owner and director Jodi Epstein. Half-Pint services children ages six weeks through six years of age. Children ages nineteen months and above may enroll two to five days of the school week. We have only the utmost care for our families and children of Half-Pint. If you have any questions at all for Jodi or would like to enroll your child/children, please click here to be directed to our contact page.
