Toddler program

Our youngest children are 6 months old and spend their days engaged in developmentally appropriate activities in our Toddler program. Qualified teachers plan the daily schedule to meet the needs of individual children. Each child is assigned to a primary caregiver who attends to them throughout the day. The Center provides a safe environment where toddlers are encouraged to explore and grow under the nurturing guidance of their classroom teachers. Children participate in developmentally appropriate play experiences that will help to foster their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth and development. We provide breakfast, lunch, and snack for all children. Every parent is assigned a parent mailbox, which should be checked daily for important information, updates, and the monthly newsletters and calendars from your child’s classroom. Our staff will also provide “Toddler Tattlers”, which are daily notes we send home to give feedback on your child’s day.

Preschool program

Our Preschool Program provides a safe and exciting environment for young children to both learn and explore. Children are exposed to a wide variety of hands-on, developmentally appropriate materials and experiences that will help to foster their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth and development. We provide breakfast, lunch, and snack for all children. Each parent is assigned a parent mailbox that should be checked daily for important information, updates, and the monthly newsletters and calendars from your child’s classroom.
