Infants (6 weeks to 12 months)
We provide a nurturing and loving environment in which your infant can develop trust, love and security. We talk and read to the babies daily. We help them become aware of their bodies and surroundings. We encourage and assist them with developing their small and large motor skills.
Wobblers (12 months to 24 months)
We provide an environment safe for our wobblers to explore as they develop more self-confidence. We help with the development of their vocabulary by reading to them daily and constantly talking to them. We help them to make choices, encouraging appropriate behavior and setting limits consistently. This allows them to explore and discover through trial and error. We promote good health habits by teaching them to wash their hands before and after meals and after going to the bathroom.
Pre-Toddlers (24 months to 36 months)
Pre-Toddlers are becoming more independent developing reasoning and problem solving skills. We explain consequences of behavior so children can learn “whys”. We encourage sharing, taking turns and respecting the rights of others. We expose them to a variety of materials such as blocks, puzzles, and paints. We introduce them to a variety of books, stories, poems, and rhymes developing an interest in literature. We help them develop counting and matching skills, and learn shapes, colors and numbers.
Toddlers (3 and 4 year olds)
At this age, toddlers are developing vocabulary rapidly. We emphasize the correct use of language and use a variety of words to enlarge the toddlers’ vocabulary. We engage the toddlers in conversation to increase their conversation skills. We work with sorting and grouping objects, taking things apart and putting them back together, helping them to describe how things feel such as soft, sticky, hard, wet, and dry. We read to them constantly and have them take part in discussing the plot and meaning of each book. We sing lots of songs with interactive movements to go along with the music.
PreK (4 year olds)
(must be 4 years old by September 1st)
We continue to emphasize the use of language and the fun of learning. We work on each child’s attention span which is necessary to complete most learning tasks. We combine teaching with interesting activities which include using the large and small muscles in order to assist the child with coordination skills. In addition, we work with sensory stimulation, reading and math readiness, and concept development. All of these skills are designed to develop a positive learning experience for each child and is necessary for success in school.
