Early Learning, Preschool & Elementary School Programs:
Infant and Toddler Center Curriculum (Ages 3 months to 2 years)
The day runs from 8am - 6pm, with 2, 3 or 5 days a week enrollment options
Infants follow their own unique rhythms of playing, eating, sleeping, and diapering. Teachers work closely with families in developing an individual plan that is both familiar and consistent. Our infants and toddlers begin their day with a morning arrival period. Once the children have settled there is a “Morning Assembly”. Children also have time to focus on individual project work which usually derives from observations of children’s play.
Teachers will bring children to the gym or playground for approx. 20-30 min. periods 3 times a day. We use snack time as an opportunity for students to interact with one another in a “family style” manner. Nap/rest time depends on each child’s specific needs. Music through rhythm and instruments is a primary tool for this age group. We also expose our infants and toddlers to art to build upon children’s natural curiosity through different textures and light exploration.
Preschool Curriculum (Ages 2-4)
Preschool program begins with arrival between 8:30 and 9:00 am. Dismissal is between 2:45 and 3:00.
Every day, the teachers bring their students to the gym or our rooftop playground where they will have approx. 30-40 minutes of free play along with a structured activity. Potty training, dressing and fastening their clothes, and hand washing are highlighted activities for our preschools to learn about. Art and Music are also weekly activities that develop our preschools expanding knowledge of material. Rest time is developed by the teacher based on your child’s individual needs.
There is a morning snack and afternoon snack just before Closing Ceremony. We also offer Afterschool Programs that include: soccer, imagination workshop, library, animal exploration, and many more.
