This program provides a Parent-caregiver partnership based on mutual respect and the understanding of individual child's needs.

Daily activities for infants encourage cognitive and socialization skills, along with fine and gross motor development.

Infants are encouraged to follow their own schedule based on their needs and routines.
Infant Program
Toddler 1
    Since toddlers learn through play and exploration, we give them the space, age-appropriate materials, and the stimulation they need to help quench their thirst for knowledge of the world around them.

    Toddlers will experience:
Interactive play, music, and dance.
Outdoor time encourages social engagement in plenty of fresh air and sunshine.

    Self-help skills such as washing hands, picking up after themselves and sharing are taught to this age group in order to help foster independence.
Toddler 2
    Up until now, most of the play with infants and toddlers has been independent. To get twos more accustomed to social interaction, so we start each morning with group circle time.

    This stage also marks the beginning of a child's potty training journey. Our staff frequently takes the children to the restroom, and then guides them through the process.

    Our twos curriculum includes imaginary play, creative arts and a colorful assortment of reading options. Our curriculum helps to enhance their ability to communicate verbally.

    Preschool aged children are offered a half or full day innovative preschool program.
Our preschools are broken up into three completely separate classes according to chronological age and developmental stage. We do this to provide an environment where children can be independent and exercise a variety of personal, social, and emotional skills with children at similar stages of development.

    This program offers a structured and creative curriculum that focuses on Kindergarten readiness. 
 Areas of focus are language, literacy, self help skills, communication, mathematics, gross/fine development, science discovery, character building, dramatic play, and more!
