Our great respect for the individual child derives from the findings of Jean Piaget, who discovered the developmental thought process of infants, toddlers and preschoolers. From Piaget's work, early childhood educators know that children learn best through play.
''The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

Reading and literacy are an integral part of our program from Infants through Pre-kindergarten.
The infant room is designed to reflect a home-like feeling with eating, sleeping, and play areas. Our babies are bottle fed in rocking chairs as they would be at home. Infants are on their own schedules. Our staff understands the importance of talking, singing, and warmly interacting with the babies throughout the day. Indoor activities promoting intellectual stimulation are planned based on the developmental stage of each infant. Parents may expect daily verbal and written reports on eating, changing schedules, sleeping, and new developments. Each infant has his/her individual crib. Bottles & baby food, disposable diapers, wipes, creams, crib sheets and blankets must be provided by the parents.
Through supervised play in a planned, stimulating environment, toddlers rapidly acquire a foundation of basic skills and capacities during the first two years as motor skills develop and early language begins. Toys and materials are selected to help the development of gross and fine motor skills. While still needing a nurturing, secure environment, toddlers begin to explore their independence and start developing the beginnings of emotional and social stages. Our staff understands the developmental needs of the toddler and introduces activities that help in the appropriate developmental stages of the 1 to 2-year-old.
A multi-fold curriculum is introduced to the toddlers that helps develop the traces of complex thinking and important social and emotional developments that occur during the toddler years. Learning to navigate through interest areas in the classroom and rotating in small groups help the toddler learn through a hands-on, creative, fun environment as academics are presented in an appropriate setting that meets the developmental needs of a 2 to 3-year-old.
Preschool children enjoy spending time with other youngsters their own age and becoming involved with group activities. Structured educational programs introduce them to basic concepts in language arts, math, science, social studies, and art. We have specifically designed learning centers for individual and group projects that encourage children to make discoveries about themselves, fellow beings and the world we all live in and share. Our staff plans activities for groups as well as for individual children in order to foster their development in all areas.
Pre-kindergarten children exhibit growing physical and intellectual independence made possible by acquired physical skills and complex language. Daily structured educational programs stress language, arts, math, science, social studies, and computer skills. There is an end of the year graduation ceremony as well. Creativity is encouraged and learning experiences presented as a healthy mixture of fun and challenge at our learning center.
