Programs

Curriculum

collageOur primary goal is to teach children socialization skills in small groups with plenty of teacher interaction. We maintain age-appropriate learning goals to encourage social and motor development and to develop verbal and cognitive skills. Children grow through daily classroom activities, playground interaction, music and creative movement programs as well as other enrichment programs. We have our best moments learning to play and work together creatively.

Our Two Year Old Program is a socialization-based program.

Our Threes and Fours  classrooms work through a theme-based curriculum.
