We structure our curriculum around four key elements of development to ensure the growth of the whole child. They are:
Your child will communicate with others verbally and nonverbally to engage in the world around them. Your child will make new friends and gain the skills necessary for a lifetime of healthy relationships.Emotional
Children will enjoy a safe, environment where they can learn to express themselves and understand their own unique identities. Your child will gain the comfort and confidence to value their individuality, and have fun just being themselves.
We focus on the physical health and well-being of your child so they grow up safe and strong. Motor-skill development, coordination, mobility, and exercise all help ensure your growing child has a healthy body for a lifetime.
Our programs help build brain power by supporting the development of judgment, perception, memory, reasoning, critical thinking, and language through a series of age-appropriate cognitive activities. Reading, writing, and math are important and children learn by experiencing the world around them.
6 weeks to 18 months
We provide a safe and nurturing “home away from home” where your baby can grow and learn every day by exploring and making new discoveries. We are committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child as they take their first steps toward a bright future.
Because each infant is on a different schedule, our teachers create an individual infant plan for every child. Infants are presented with activities that boost their little brains, encourage their first words, build strong bodies and help make new little buddies. Our teachers record all feedings and diaper changes on a communication form for our families so you will know how your little one did throughout the day.
