Infants

6 weeks – 12 months

Our infant childcare program focuses on meeting the individual needs of every child while still providing opportunities to build relationships with teachers and peers as they learn to become active members in their community. All of this is done in a nurturing and trusting environment that fosters development in all learning domains and promotes a style of learning that is truly the best for all children. That is play-based learning!

  • Visual Stimulation: bright colors, interesting shapes to observe
  • Social Interaction: playing and sharing with other children
  • Motor Skills and Muscle Development: building with blocks, shape sorting, catching and throwing
  • Language Development: interaction with teachers and other children
  • Exploring their Senses: touch, smell, taste, and hearing
  • Trust in Adults: relationships with caregivers

Toddlers

12 months – 2.5 years

We have two toddler rooms, young toddlers, age 12-18 months, and old toddlers, age 18 months – 30 months. The toddler programs support toddlers and their increased independence, exploration of emotions and feelings, and fast-developing use of language. We also understand and support their continued desire to explore everything about their world and believe our learning center structure gives them the best opportunity to do this. You will see that each learning center, set up with developmentally appropriate materials, draws in toddlers and give them a space to explore and create.

  • Social Interaction: playing and sharing with other children
  • Gaining Independence: teaching and allowing children to do things on their own, with help if needed
  • Learn to Explore and Experiment: discovering things in their environment and thinking about how they work
  • Learn to Deal with Emotions and Frustration
  • Learn Colors: match and sort
  • Fine Motor Skills: puzzles and blocks

Barely 3’s

2.5 years – 3 years

The barely 3’s program is nothing short of amazing! Children at this age have an overwhelming eagerness to learn and you will notice that their ability to experiment, explore, and focus on set activities begins to change rapidly. Our program supports their need to be challenged, engaged, and encouraged in their learning and personal interests. All of this is done with the belief that children learn best through play!

  • Alphabet: learning and recognizing letters
  • Understanding Quantity: 1 block, 2 dolls
  • Exploring Senses: tasting, feeling, smelling, and hearing sounds in their environment
  • Language Development: understanding the simplest sentences spoken to them, learning to speak in three-to-five-word sentences and carrying on simple conversations.

Preschool

3 years – 6 years

We have two separate pre-school classrooms, our preschool 3’s classroom and our pre-K 4’s and 5-s classroom. We mirror the kindergarten classroom!

The preschool years consist of so much learning and development! Their peer relationships are strengthening, they have a more complex understanding and use of language, and their overall motor skills have developed rapidly. Our program continues to support their need to be challenged, engaged, and supported in their learning and personal interests. The success of our preschool classrooms truly lies in the environment and setup of materials. In these rooms, you will see that each learning center, set up with developmentally appropriate materials, supports preschoolers in their learning and gives them a space to explore and create.

  • Numbers: recognizing 0 to 10, using numerals 0 to 10 in counting, comparing quantities to determine more or less, identifying pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters
