Toddler Curriculum

Our toddler program is designed to teach discovery of learning. The planned curriculum allows for growth through discovery and exploration of their physical and social environments. The children develop at their own pace via many hands-on activities. We ease transition from “toddlerdom” to preschool with loving support and enthusiasm. Parent input and support is always welcome; and is a necessity during toilet training.

Preschool Curriculum

The preschool program is a whole language program based on weekly themes. In an open classroom environment, mixed ages will benefit through modeling and helping each other. The curriculum is a two-level program created to meet the individual needs of the child. As the child reaches a higher developmental level they will start to do the higher level activities. Because we desire to strengthen the child’s natural love of learning, we also make the most of the many teachable moments experienced each day. Creativity is encouraged in all areas and activities.

Using fingers to explore and manipulate
