Our programs value and follow the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC’s) Accreditation Standards, including low teacher-child ratios. Our environments, similar to Montessori, promote children’s explorations. However, we also emphasize dramatic play, social interactions and creativity. Children engage in developmentally appropriate activities: promoting skills for Kindergarten and activities to help them understand the world around them.
We support two-year olds’ emerging language, self-help & social skills. We plan topics to help young preschoolers begin to understand the world around them. This program encourages a wide range of activities, including simple art projects, music & movement.
This program supports three-year olds (preschoolers) as they begin to learn self-help skills and social interactions through conflict resolution. Our topics promote vocabulary, beginning science, alphabet, counting and problem solving along with creativity, music and movement.
To prepare for Kindergarten, activities promote vocabulary, the alphabet, & pre-reading skills through phonics games, rhymes, and word play. Topics reflect science exploration, math and numbers, logical reasoning. Creativity, socialization, music & movement are also emphasized.
