Learning Through Play


Ages 3-12 Months. All babies are on their own schedule in a warm, nurturing environment. Our caring staff provides age appropriate activities such as tummy time, music, stories, and play time. Sign language and language development are strongly encouraged. Milestones are recognized and celebrated!


Ages 12-24 Months. Language development and self-help skills abound in our classrooms. We provide plenty of activities to support fine and gross motor development. Children work to develop their social skills and form friendships. Buggy rides and the playground are favorite experiences, along with tactile activities and art. Music and dancing are a part of each day!


Ages 24-36 Months. Our 2-year-olds focus on developing socialization skills such as sharing and turn taking. Self-help skills are stressed as they learn to dress, zip, and pour. A little Spanish is introduced, as well as colors, shapes, counting, and learning about the world around us through interesting topics. Music and both fine and gross motor activities are daily events. Potty Parties celebrating the end of diapers are major celebrations!


Ages 3-5. Preschool and Pre-K classes focus on both social and academic skills. Children learn phonics and letter recognition, counting, number recognition, science, social studies, music, writing, and art. Skills are refined in an atmosphere of combined center activities and teacher-directed activities. Games in the Movement Room combine with playground time to strengthen large motor skills. Getting kids prepared for Kindergarten is our goal!
