Our Young Toddler (beginning at 15 months) and Older Toddler (beginning at 2 years old) programs focus on the development of trust, establishing autonomy and self-control, separating from parents, building on existing language skills, and learning to be with peers. Activities focus on sensory experiences, hands-on learning, early literacy, constructive play, music and movement, communication with peers, and handling feelings in acceptable, socially appropriate ways.
The PreK-3 program (for children 3 to 4 years old) focuses on building competence and initiative through active involvement with the classroom environment. Activities promote cooperative behavior, problem-solving skills, logical thinking skills, imaginative play, and language and emerging literacy skills. Interest areas include blocks, manipulatives, science, writing, library, dramatic play, music sensory/discovery, and art.
The PreK-4 program prepares children for the transition to Kindergarten with activities and additional curriculum components that challenge the children in each developmental area. Interest areas in PreK-4 duplicate those in the PreK-3 classrooms with the addition of technology center, which includes the use of an iPad. Activities build on existing skills while incorporating new, more sophisticated concepts in all areas of development.
