2015 Kindergarten Registration
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.
