Our primary focus in taking care of our infants is love and nurturing. Trained caregivers who love babies will encourage your infant's emotional and physical development by holding them, talking to them, singing, smiling, reading, and playing. The colorful, soft, and safe environment of the nursery fosters the concerns, therefore only appropriate toys, materials, and equipment is used and sanitized daily. We accomodate the rapid changes and demands of the babies first year and build confidence into their transition to the toddler age. Every day you will receive a log of your child's eating, sleeping, diapering, and learning activities.
Our toddlers are changing so much. They start to develop routines/schedules, more as a group. They continue to develop their large and fine motor skills, as well as their communication with other children and adults. Sensory activities, stories, music/moviement, pretend play, building, and other exploratory experiences are important at this age. Toddlers also are socializing more, so fostering positive interactions with others, while gaining confidence in themselves is important.
2-3 Year Olds
The two & three year olds’ program is designed to help the child develop concepts and language skills necessary for future learning through listening to stories, retelling events, and dramatic play with puppets, music, and movement. A variety of play and art materials give the children a chance to explore. Building with blocks, painting, collage, murals, and constructing with different materials develop the child’s small motor and problem solving skills, and enhance their sense of creativity and self-expression.
3-4 Year Olds
The three and four year olds' program is designed to help prepare the child for preschool/4K. This is done with a wide variety of activities centered around art, music, literacy, math, science, socialization/cooperation, large motor, and fine motor activities.
