OUR
PROGRAMS

Infants

​​During the early years infants are learning to trust their world, actively explore their environment, and do things for themselves.  Staff show respect for children and interact with them in caring ways.  An infant lesson plan is developed each week for the classroom and individual activities are planned for every child.  These activities center on daily routines: morning and evening transitions, diapering, feeding, eating, and napping.  Staff also introduce infants to a variety of experiences; including art, outdoor/gym time (large motor), playing with toys, infant sign, looking at books (pre-reading), singing songs (musical), exploring water play (sensory), and more.

Toddlers

  For toddlers, staff plan a variety of fun activities to help them solve, predict, plan, share, cooperate, empathize, and understand how to get along with their world.  Again, the focus is on maximizing play and learning experiences in daily routines.  In the weekly lesson plan, staff incorporate art (fine motor), outdoor/gym time (large motor), stories and reading, songs, sand and water play (sensory), food projects, creative movement, imitating, and pretending.  Staff promote positive self-esteem and self-help skills.  

Preschool

  
For preschoolers, our goals are similar to those indicated for toddlers, although we focus more on pre-reading and pre-math skills.  A few examples are sorting, patterning, color awareness, calendar activities, classification, estimating, number and letter recognition and naming, rhyming, picture naming, alliteration and letter sounds.  In our weekly lesson plans we also include art (fine motor), outdoor/gym time (large motor), stories and reading, songs, sand and water play (sensory), food projects, creative movement, imitating, and pretending.  Staff promote socialization skills by concentrating on manners, privacy rules, non-violent conflict resolution, empathizing, sharing, imagining, and communication skills.  

School Age

  ​For school-age children, our goal is to provide a safe environment where children learn and play.  There is a time provided for snack, to complete homework, and for participation in activities throughout the classroom.  Staff continue to provide socialization skills appropriate for the school-age child.  Outside and gym time is utilized when weather permits and space is available.
