12 months - 24 months
As toddlers master the art of language and mobility, they develop new ways to express their needs. They begin to interact with peers, parents, and caregivers on a more complex level. These new achievements contribute to the toddler's overall feelings of self-esteem and confidence.
When we encourage children to solve problems, make choices, and practice self-help skills, we empower them with independence and self-reliance. Our toddler curriculum uses monthly themes to promote language and communications skills, social and emotional growth, early cognitive skills, and development.
Health, safety, and hygiene are given the highest priority. We offer potty training assistance when needed. Parents will be given a daily report on diaper changes, feedings, naps and activities.
3 Years - 6 Years
Young children learn best through active exploration of their environment and interactions with other children and adults. Children have a natural desire to learn and make sense of the world around them. Self-confidence and self-esteem grow as children experience success.
Our early learning program promotes a stimulating, challenging learning environment. The staff provides the children with an environment of consistency and a sense of security. Through the age and individually appropriate curriculum, our teachers give children daily opportunities to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child. When these needs are met children are successful in Kindergarten and successful in life. We accomplish this goal by:
- Allowing children to spend sufficient time in Dramatic Play activities and working with materials or with other children. This type of play is called structured play since the activities are particularly designed to increase math, language and early reading skills.
- Providing children with access to various activities throughout the day.
- Permitting teachers to work with individual children, small groups, and the whole group at different times during the day.
- Incorporating numbers and the alphabet in the context of the child's everyday experience.
- Giving children an opportunity to play outside in a safe area every day.
- Giving the children access and exposure to wide variety of subjects outside of the standard ABC's and 123's. Other subjects include life science, social science, history and our community, geography, basic religion lessons (based upon each individuals preference), sewing, cooking, arts and crafts, drama and computers.
Health, safety, and hygiene are given the highest priority. Parents will be given a daily report on eating pattern, naps and activities.
