Infant Program (4 weeks to 15 months)
Our new infant program provides infants as young as 4 weeks with a loving and stimulating environment geared to a babies needs. At this age, focus is placed on flexibility of activity to match each infant’s development level. We create an environment with responsive interaction allowing infants to pull, crawl, grasp reach and develop naturally. We maintain a
2:7 teacher child ratio to accommodate the rapid growth in these beginning months.
Toddler Program (15 months to 2.9 years)
Toddlers strive to explore and discover in an environment that will stimulate their learning. Unstructured materials for art, music, dance and dramatic play enables toddlers to enjoy the process creating ideas and solving their problems. We maintain a 2:9 teacher student ration for this program.
Preschool Program (2.9 years – 5 years)
The Preschool program provides quality care in a safe, supportive environment that encourages “learning by doing.” The program teaches dressing skills, both fine and gross motor skills, shapes, number and letter recognition, phonics and early math such as sequencing and sorting. In addition we promote healthy habits through physical activity character building, literacy and self help skills. We maintain a 1:10 ratio for this program.
