Program overview

Each classroom creates weekly/monthly lesson plans that build upon the "Arts and Appreciations":
• Early Literacy Appreciation
• Music Appreciation
• Theatrical / Performing Arts
• Visual / Fine Arts
• Fine Motor Skills

Naturally, every young child grows at a different rate than their peers. We help to further encourage this development through use of individualized lesson plans for each child based on their own unique needs while also consistently providing a nurturing and loving environment for your precious little one.

Beginning at this age, we introduce monthly themes to broaden the learning spectrum; and keep daily activities exciting for everyone! • Many of our toddlers know all of their colors and can count to ten. • We encourage our toddlers to begin using spoons and "Sippy" cups as well as other independent skills.

Our two's build upon what they learned and experienced in our toddler room and now begin to learn to play well with others, take turns and sharing; make individual choices; learning "cause and effects"; and building independence skills.

Three year-olds focus on learning concepts: alphabets, numbers, simple science, cooking, and others. We provide opportunities for many educational field trips that are tailored to the theme of the month, and also create "homework" to share learning experiences with their parents and slowly introduce Kindergarten preparations.

We kick it up a notch to prepare our four year-olds for the adventures of Kindergarten. To provide your child a unique advantage when starting school, we have designed our "Kindergarten Readiness Program" around local schools' pre-test standards. Our Pre-K teachers also have extensive training in reading readiness and provide educationally appropriate field trips to further accentuate weekly lesson plans; turning learning into a realistic/hands-on application.
