Infant and Toddler I
Our infant and Toddler I programs are designed to stimulate and nurture an infant's development in a loving and caring environment. We encourage parent and teacher communication as a vital part of an infant's daily routine. This is accomplished by providing parents with information pertaining to the infant's daily experiences and activities. The Infant and Toddler I stage is an extremely vital age; therefore, we promote developmentally appropriate activities to help foster growth and awareness. By concentrating on the individual needs and routines of each infant, staff is able to encourage physical, social, and emotional development.
Toddler II and Preschool I
Our Toddler II and Preschool I programs are one of our most active programs. At this developmental stage, children are very curious and experimental. We have developed a program designed to help stimulate these active learners. While actively learning colors, shapes, artistic techniques, dramatic play, music, and movement, they will be working toward proper verbal usage, while gaining other verbal skills. Because this developmental stage is an active and curious stage, we will be planning many hands-on and sensory activities that may require them to get messy!
Preschool II and Preschool III / Pre-K I and Pre-K II
Our Preschool and Pre-K programs are designed to stimulate active imaginations and minds. Your children will experience creative and active learning principles that will foster cognitive, physical, emotional and social aspects of development. Hands-on and problem-solving experiences help children achieve self-esteem that will ensure them future academic success. They will enjoy exploring math, science, language arts, technology, and dramatic play which will better help them experience future academic success.
Our School Age program takes on the individulized approach to learning. Children are encouraged to utilize their own creativity and intellect through child-initiated projects. Through the use of everyday building projects, they are encouraged to use their creative minds and imaginations. This type of engagement builds self-esteem and fosters many aspects of development. In addition, children will be provided opportunities to explore science and technology along with small group games and recreation. Our School Age program gives a child the freedom to enjoy and choose many activities while maintaining a calm and structured classroom setting.
Our Part-Time preschool offers two, three, or five half day options. It incorporates many of the same aspects of our full time programs.
