Programs By Age:

Our child care programs engage children in hands-on experiences rather than scripted curriculum. Learning centers give children an opportunity to make choices, come up with ideas, and be creative. As play unfolds, our staff observe, listen, and reflect. They ask questions and talk to the children about what they are doing. Then they plan new and challenging classroom activities taking into consideration the individual needs of each child. By employing these scaffolding techniques, children find learning is fun while achieving heights they otherwise could not reach.

Toddlers (1yr+)

Working in partnership with parents, nurturing staff provide toddlers with individual child care in a loving, secure and engaging environment.

Early Preschool (2yr+)

Early Preschoolers understand what it means to trust and be trusted by child care staff. Play based early preschool curriculum promotes attention, self-regulation, and self-help skills.

Preschool (3yr-4yr)

Preschoolers engage in hands-on literacy and number activities. Social skills include the encouragement of independence and cooperation.

Pre-kindergarten (4yr-5yr)

Pre-kindergarten means getting ready for kindergarten with age-appropriate, collaborative lessons in reading, writing, math, problem-solving, and language.

Kindergarten (5yr-6yr)

Independent and group work, goal-setting, and critical-thinking are explored in our private kindergarten (half/full day programs) with a low teacher-to-student ratio.

School-Age (Post Kg-12)

Before and after child care includes a variety of fun, exciting, and educational activities. During the summer add special events, field trips, and guest presenters. It all adds up to fun, fun, and more fun in the summer adventure day camp.
