Our infant classrooms serve babies from six weeks through 18 months of age. The day is full of singing, nursery rhymes and dancing. Based upon the child's age, the focus may be on rolling over, sitting up, encouraging crawling or walking or using a paint brush to create a masterpiece. Experiences such as empty boxes to fill and dump, blowing and catching bubbles, water play and pouring un-cooked noodles into different color and shaped containers supports the development of all the domains no matter the age of the baby.
Our toddler classrooms are designed to support children between the ages of 18 months through three. The toddler program's goals are to create opportunities for them to build friendships with one another. Toddlers explore materials to support language and daily experiences are designed to encourage independence. Children learn about shapes, colors, use blocks to count and understand cause and effect, learn about rhyming and use creativity by playing make-believe.
Our preschool classrooms are intended to provide meaningful experiences in which children can build upon the developmental domains. The Early Learning Content Standards are our guide in providing authentic academic learning experiences. Toys are deliberately offered to encourage thinking, problem solving, collaboration, observation and success. Children's fine motor skills are refined through writing, drawing and painting. Children learn how to communicate their frustrations, feelings and needs. Experiences and activities are deliberately planned to benefit them in kindergarten and beyond.
