The Infant program has facilities for up to six children daily. Infants are lovingly cared for by two trained infant teachers. We ask that you provide whatever pre-made bottles, food, diapers and essentials may be necessary for your child’s comfort for the morning. Our adorable nursery features stimulating and educational toys. Our infant program features the introduction of baby signing to facilitate communication and motor skill development in your child. Parents are encouraged to use the signs at home to further reinforce their application in the classroom. We accept babies as early as 6 weeks.
The early toddler class has a maximum of 10 students with a certified teacher and a teacher’s aide. Our thoughtful curriculum addresses your child’s social, emotional, and developmental needs and places a strong emphasis on independence. In this small class, children are lovingly introduced to a classroom structure with circle time, Montessori play and movement activities.
The intermediate toddler program has facilities for up to ten children daily. Toddlers move up from the early toddler room, or join in the class at different ages, based on social and physical development. Toddlers are introduced to art, music, science and literature at their own developmental level while being lovingly supervised by one certified teacher and one teacher’s aide. Weather permitting; we go outside everyday on our toddler playground.
The older toddler program has facilities for up to ten children daily. In this precursor to our Pre-K room, toddlers have daily circle time (consisting of bible verses, songs and books), art activities, outdoor play, free play, music & movement, and fine motor activities. The two teachers in this class nurture your child’s social emotional development while introducing students to a more structured classroom environment. Teachers assist with potty training and overall independence.
The Pre-K program has facilities for up to 10 children per day and is supervised by one certified teacher. Each day we offer age appropriate Montessori works that incorporate art, science, math, practical life, and phonics exercises. Children are exposed to children’s literature, outdoor play and supervised socialization. An emphasis is put on group play, language development and mastering fundamental fine and gross motor skills.
Children must be potty trained to enter this class.
