High Quality Early Learning & Child Care

Programs

Infants

Our infant program provides a safe, nurturing, and responsive environment. We capitalize on naturally occurring teaching moments and consider each step of development, no matter how big or small, as a treasured achievement. Through play/stimulation, each child is given the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally. Our classroom’s environment enables children through actions, objects and words, to explore, experiment and create their own understanding of the world they encounter.

  • Our staff follow each child's own individual schedule rather than a set classroom schedule. Therefore, curriculum and schedules happen naturally and differently each day.
  • Every infant is on an individualized program according to their needs.
  • Our parents will receive a daily report of their child's day
  • Parents will receive 4 progress reports annually

Toddlers

Children at this age are beginning to explore and recognize their environment in new and exciting ways. Our toddlers are provided with lots of stimulating sensory materials and experiences. Ourteachers focus on introducing language through daily stories, songs and dialogue and the development of motor skills through exercise, play and age appropriate materials.

​As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop them, giving each child the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

  • Throughout the day we also help teach how to resolve conflicts and deal appropriately with the emotional challenges that are part of a toddler's everyday life.
  • Parents will receive a daily reports
  • Parents will receive 2 progress reports annually

Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten

Our unique preschool and pre-kindergarten curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. Our preschool and pre-kindergarten program is designed to help all children to grow as individuals, emotionally, socially, mentally, and physically. To prepare them for kindergarten, our teachers introduce them to social disciplines through group activities and experiences, cooperation with adults and other children, learning to follow directions, respect for people and property, responsiveness and responsibility.

Each child will have the opportunity to express themselves through the use of creative materials such as paint, crayons, and various other art materials. Self-expression is also encouraged through the use of music, dance, games, and dramatic play such as acting out stories and songs with the use of our play equipment. What a child considers play often teaches necessary fact, ideas, and concepts that they will use to develop future skills.

  • Children will receive 2 progress reports annually
