Our daily program is divided into various areas, to offer the optimum learning experiences for each child.
Each classroom has a detailed program plan that changes every week, offering structured and unstructured activities the children can choose from. Some of these activities include: arts and crafts, dramatic play, music, manipulative play, sensory play, gross motor play, reading area, science activities and circle time.
Children are encouraged to participate in school readiness activities, such as simple worksheets and printing books. These activities are individualized, taking into account each child’s ability and interest. Progress Reports are given out twice a year, giving parents a general idea of how the activities impact the children.
Our toddler classroom holds 10 children aged 18-30 months. There are 2 trained staff with the children to provide exciting and age appropriate activities.
The Preschool/Junior and Senior children are aged 2 ½ years to 5 years. This age group has 1 trained staff per 8 children. This age group is where the school readiness begins. Children begin with simple activities and work from there. Along with all of the everyday activities offered to each group.
