Curriculum

We believe children learn best through hands-on exploration of the environment. Age-specific programming is based on a child-initiated, play-based curriculum. Teachers plan activities based upon their observations of children's' interests and abilities.

Infant

  • Individualized programming based on open communication
  • Written report received daily
  • Teachers specialized in infant care
  • Activities and equipment support physical, cognitive and social-emotional development

Toddler

  • Your child will be invited to participate in group activities that promote development across all domains
  • Self-help skills and social skills are learned through daily routines
  • Daily written report upon parent request
  • You will receive a written assessment at the end of each semester

Preschool

  • Child initiated activities guide intellectual, physical and social development
  • Reading, writing and language development will be introduced through large and small group activities
  • Children will master self-help skills and learn to resolve conflict through communication
  • You will receive a written assessment at the end of each semester

Pre-Kindergarten

  • Through active learning, your child will become independent, responsible and confident
  • Literacy, math and science skills are developed through individual and group activities using developmentally appropriate techniques
  • Children will be encouraged to be active participants, taking part in decision making, activity planning and classroom maintenance
  • You will receive a written assessment at the end of each semester
