Infants (6 weeks to 12 months)
Our infants are stimulated through cuddling, singing, rocking, and talking. Our caregivers provide a loving and nurturing environment similar to the warm-comforts of their home. Your infant’s learning focuses on music, language, gross and fine motor skills, social and emotional development, and sensory exploration. Naps are also important to us. Babies need sleep to re-charge and grow. Safe Sleep Guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics are an important part of our curriculum and always followed.
Toddler 1 (12 months to 18 months) and 2's (18 to 24 months)
In our toddler program, your child will have the chance to learn, explore, and develop independence by learning to make their own choices in a safe environment. Your child is guided during the day through structured fun and stimulating activities creating a balance of learning and play. We ensure to challenge their active and busy minds and keep them moving. Our toddler curriculum focuses on music (instrumental and lyrical for language development), language (including Spanish and Sign language), fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional Development (centered around teacher/child and child/child interactions), sensory exploration, outdoor learning (focusing on the natural world), and art.
2 year olds (Younger 2's and Older 2's Classrooms)
In our two year old classroom, we continue to build upon our toddler curriculum teaching your child independence and a love for learning. We begin working on colors, shapes, numbers, and letter recognition. We also work on lots of self-help skills including getting dressed, washing hands, table manners, cleaning up after themselves, and when the time is right, potty training. Potty training does not need to be stressful or scary! When your child shows signs that he or she is ready, we will be there to help them (and you) succeed every step of the way.
Pre-school (3's classroom and 4's classroom)
In our preschool program we focus on gaining social skills while adding an academic component that is developmentally appropriate. We continue to offer a play-based program that prepares students for kindergarten in a developmentally appropriate way. We continue to work on early literacy and writing skills as well as early math skills to prepare all students for Kindergarten. Science and discovery activities stimulate curiosity as the children learn valuable lessons about themselves and the world around them. Art and music activities encourage individual expression.
