Classrooms

Infants

The Infant classroom is a warm, nurturing, and learning-rich environment for children 6 weeks-old through approximately 12 months-old. Our infant program incorporates a multitude of sensory, language, social, physical, and creative experiences aimed to support infants as they reach important developmental milestones. Children in the Infant program progress in their gross and fine motor development, as well as language, cognitive, and social development.

Toddlers

Children are placed in the toddler classroom at approximately 1 year of age.  Children in the toddler room continue to learn and develop through play in the following three areas: socio-emotionally, cognitively and physically. Socio-emotional growth is fostered as children learn both about themselves and others in the world around them. Physical development is fostered through attention to small and large motor skills incorporated into daily lesson plans. Every aspect of the classroom is intentionally designed to help your child grow.

2 Year Olds

 

Children are placed in the junior pre-k classroom around the age of 2. Children in the junior pre-k program continue to learn and develop through play in the following three areas: socio-emotionally, cognitively and physically. Socio-emotional growth is fostered by intentional learning opportunities for the children to express their feelings through dramatic play as well as bonding with friends through cooperative play and learning how to share and take turns. Children develop cognitively as they begin to learn words to songs, simple counting skills and letter recognition. Physical development occurs through attention to small and large motor skill experiences incorporated into daily lesson plans.

Jr. Pre-K

 

Our junior pre-kindergarten begins around the age of 3.  This program is designed to immerse children in a learning-rich, play environment as they begin to develop toward academic-readiness. This class effectively gives children a chance to learn important life skills in a play-based curriculum with foundational elements of direction following and social skill development. More often than not, this class will look like free play, until a closer look is taken.  Children use dramatic play to act out real life situations and problem solving skills are emphasized. Children develop cognitively as they begin to gain an understanding of number concepts through sorting, sequencing and counting through songs and play. Children are laced in a literature rich environment with activities tailored to their growing understanding throughout the day. Physical development continues to be cultivated through attention to small and large motor skills incorporated into daily lesson plans.

Pre-K

Our pre-kindergarten program is designed to immerse children around the age of 4 years-old in a learning-rich environment as they further develop toward academic-readiness. The program effectively blends key components of a play-based curriculum with foundational elements providing a bridge to kindergarten. Children in the pre-k program continue to learn and develop through play in the following three areas: socio- emotionally, cognitively and physically. Socio-emotional growth is fostered through cooperative play. Children use dramatic play to act out real life situations and problem solving skills are emphasized.
