Our infants  develop a unique relationship—known as attachment—with their teachers. Teachers provide that comfort by helping infants regulate needs and emotions. With healthy attachments, infants develop a sense of safety and trust.

Our toddler and two year old classes use a well-rounded program of socialization, free movement and expression, creative activities, story reading and music.  These activities are developmentally-oriented to the young child’s interests, allowing children to participate in thematic unit activities and special theme days.

Our three year old classes engage in a curriculum divided into thematic units developmentally appropriate for learning.  The study of numbers and letters will be integrated into these units as they experience storytelling, word association, perception and movement activities, learning centers, and instructional cooking activities.

Our four year old classes also use The Letter People System, Handwriting Without Tears, and  age-appropriate thematic units, putting greater emphasis on numbers, counting, letter recognition and formation, and letter sounds.  A wide variety of creative learning experiences are used to help these growing children reach his or her fullest potential!
