Our Programs

We provide age-appropriate programs for children from birth through 13 years old.

Children use play, adult and peer interactions, imitation, motivation, and direct instruction as processes through which knowledge is acquired and social connections are made. Classroom environments are designed and arranged in ways to allow for meaningful hands-on exploration, intense direct instruction, purposeful social interaction and behavioral intervention. Individualization is vital in all classrooms. We believe all children are capable and competent learners, have unique learning styles, and learn at their own pace. Teachers individualize curriculum and classrooms to inspire and challenge as well as allow for sequential successes.

Developmentally appropriate curriculum is planned, implemented and evaluated daily. To prepare children for future success early childhood educators must first meet the challenges of children at their current developmental level. To do this, teachers implement an inquiry based and enriching curriculum. Therefore, teachers monitor progress and assess skills in order to match curriculum goals with current and future levels of achievement. Teachers use curriculum models focusing on all areas of development (cognitive, language, physical and social/emotional) to ensure children are provided with an academically solid program (reading, writing, math, and science activities) as well as a secure environment in which to practice social skills and appropriate expression of emotions.

We provide an environment in which we believe children learn best:

  • Small class sizes with low child/teach ratios
  • Individual attention along with small and large group activities
  • Programs with a strong emphasis on individual learning styles

  • An emphasis on language development to enhance problem solving and critical thinking skills and English as a second language
