Toddler Program

Our toddler program incorporates learning through positive reinforcement while implementing our research based curriculum. It’s a very hands on curriculum where children get to learn and explore their surrounding with planned themed activities. Our teachers strive to model to our children how to appropriately share toys, use their manners, and utilize their words when talking to friends and teachers as much as possible. Children will learn phonemic awareness and pre-reading skills by singing children’s songs, having stories read to them, and daily communication. Learning centers of imaginary play, puzzles, and blocks are incorporated into the daily schedule.

Pre-K Program

This classroom focuses primarily on kindergarten readiness. We follow a structured learning schedule that incorporates educational based themes and activities. Our curriculum aligns with the state's recommended knowledge and skills. It focuses on circle time, language/literacy skills, basic mathematical knowledge, scientific knowledge, art, music/movement, social and emotional development, and life skills.  Children are tested in December and May and these progress reports are sent home. This is helpful in reinforcing learning concepts at home. Learning centers are included in our daily schedule to promote structure and organization in the classroom. We strive to ensure our children develop social and emotional skills in addition to academic skills.
