Our Programs

 

We have several programs to choose from to meet the needs of children and families.

- Infant (0-18 months)

- Toddler (18 months to 3 years)

- Preschool (30 months to School Age)

- Daycare (30 months to School Age)

- Before and After School

Infant



The infant program is for children that are 0 to 18 months.  It is run on the timetable of the individual infants in care. This allows them to follow the routine they follow at home so they are comfortable during their time away from family.

Toddler

 

The toddler program is for children 18 months to 3 years of age. The program starts getting the children into a routine and provides confidence for the start of independence.  We do this with daily activities and toilet training.



+ Literacy and Mathematics

+ Circle Time
+ Art
+ Nature Explorations
+ Social Interactions


Preschool

 

Our 4 hour/half-day preschool offers flexibility for parents to choose how many days a week is right for their children.  The program is for children 30 months to School Age and offered from September to June.  We do run Summer Day Camps, but space is limited. Children's needs are met in a safe environment where they can learn new skills. Staff provide a program that fosters developmentally appropriate skills and develops positive trusting relationships.

Daycare

Our full-day care offers children the benefits of our Preschool program in a longer day format. Our program builds on children's natural desire to learn new things and become self-reliant. Programs focus on integrating curriculum into age-appropriate and fun activities. The program will encourage natural relationship building, peer socialization, sharing, taking turns, and working in a group. They will stretch their skills in spirit, mind, and body.
