Pre school Room
While the focus is still largely on their primary care, toddlers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.
Infancy is a wondrous period of growth and exploration. Our infant programs focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.
Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. We encourage and promote positive social interaction and develop the many tools necessary to ensure a positive transition to “big” school and a lifelong love of learning.
Before & After School Room
Our Before and After School Program is tailored to the interests and needs of school-age children with an emphasis on active play. Staff provide a relaxed and nurturing environment that assists children with individualized homework guidance, as well, they incorporate plenty of indoor and outdoor active play, including our BodyBreak KID FIT program.
