Infants

Our teachers specialize in providing a warm, nurturing environment for all infants. We strive to provide your infant with a schedule that will help transition them into toddlerhood. Diapers, wipes, formula, and baby food are all provided for FREE! Tummy time, arts and crafts, singing, and reading promote motor skills and language development.

Toddlers

The toddler classroom is potty training central! With your help, our teachers take the time to make sure the children are mastering the art of pottying on their own. We will provide diapers during the potty training transition for FREE. Themed lesson plans help incorporate art, science, music, math, and language development in the classroom. Basic concepts involving shapes, colors, numbers, and letters are introduced at this level. It is our goal to send our toddlers to preschool with a foundation for learning.

Preschool

Our preschool is designed to get your child ready for school! Our curriculum uses creative themes, hands-on activities, and music to teach young children while our structured environment promotes writing, language development, math skills, and science concepts. Preschool children will also gain confidence in areas such as colors, shapes, numbers, and letter recognition. Art, dramatic play, and discussions are utilized to encourage children to work and think creatively. We strive to develop the children's imaginations, reasoning skills, and self-confidence by emphasizing creative problem solving. The emphasis is on the learning process, not on whether something is done right or on time. It is our goal to use these concepts as a foundation to prepare your children for kindergarten.
