Infants Buzzing Bumblebees
The infant time period is perhaps the most significant period of development. Children begin learning at birth. We encourage babies to communicate by playing games like peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake. We give individualized care and attention that help develop the foundations for language and learning, through holding, singing and talking to your child. Feeding, sleeping and other activities are all individualized and will complement your schedule at home. We will follow the diet plan and use the food you provide until your baby is on regular table food. Progress reports for infants and young toddlers are on-going and sent home on a daily basis. These reports include information on eating, changing schedules and any new developments as they occur.
Toddlers The Explorers
Toddlers still need individualized feeding and sleeping schedules, as well as a lot of caring, attention and interaction. There are plenty of fun things to watch and to do. Our toddler teachers listen and talk with each child and try to anticipate individual needs. Because children learn through playing and exploring what is within their environment, we provide them with a wide range of activities throughout the day. Toddler activities also help develop small and large muscle groups.
Preschoolers The superstars, The Super Kids, The Busy Bees
Our preschool programs are designed to encourage children’s love of learning while preparing them for kindergarten. Our preschool programs, feature theme based learning in discovery areas that are age appropriate. Hands on experiences help children understand concepts as we emphasize pre-reading, basic math concepts, and science. Our programs include daily opportunities to stimulate emotional, social, physical, intellectual and creative growth. Although children shall be initially assigned to a class according to age, they might later be transferred to another group according to their individual needs. Age groupings are generally based on the child’s age as of September 1st of each year.
While preparing our pre-k students for the rigorous atmosphere of kindergarten our classroom fosters play, creative freedom, self-trust, and personal responsibility. This room encompasses the excitement of learning and the enjoyment of sharing it with others.
As a member of our after school program, your school age child can enjoy a sense of belonging, in a supervised environment during those hours before and after school and during school vacations. We have designed a program that is fun and loosely structured. After school is the perfect time to be with friends, have a snack, sharpen athletic skills, read and do homework.
Infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers continue with their planned program year-round. Children ages five through twelve can attend a summer day-camp program from June- August. Specific details will be available each spring.
