Diverse Learning Environments
Every infant has an assigned primary caregiver to ensure the child receives the comfort and attention that he/she deserves. Continuity of care begins in the infant room, where the teacher will build a trusting relationship between the infant and their family. Teachers ensure responsive caregiving with the infants to be sure their needs are met. We use Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum to focus on routines and experiences for our older infants and toddlers. This helps us follow children's development and be sure that they are hitting their milestones.
The toddler room is a room of discovery and developing of minds, where children are interested in everything and ready to learn. At two and a half years old, a child will move up to the toddler classroom. A toddler-based Creative Curriculum is used to help the developing two-year-old minds and enrich language from baby signs to socializing. Outdoor and large-motor play, social-emotional wellbeing, STEM learning, and providing opportunities to use meaningful investigation of their world will also be influenced in this room.
The preschool room encourages children to intellectually examine events and objects around them by using their investigations to suggest, plan and implement activities. Preschool-based Creative Curriculum is used in this room to engage in meaningful extended conversations and discussions with peers and adults. Developing self-control, helping others solve problems, gaining confidence in overcoming obstacles, facing setbacks, and solving problems are also focused on in the preschool room. Teachers focus on school readiness and prepare them for the next transition.
Before & After Care
Our Before & After Care program enstills the same values in our school-aged children, and provides them with care around the hours of public school. Our program gives them an opportunity to work on school work, have hands on experiences, and relax and play. The staff balances work and play, especially after a long day learning at school.
