(ages 6 weeks-35 months)
Infants and toddlers experience incredible growth and change in the first three years of life and have different needs at each stage. We believe children of this young age should be nurtured and cared for as if they were in a “home environment”. Caregiving is a most essential part of the curriculum; teachable moments arise during diapering and toileting (including toilet training), meals and feedings, dressing and napping. Our curriculum activities emerge from individual child’s interests and abilities. Our classrooms are set up to encourage exploration and discovery. Each area offers a wide range of choice from which the children can select. Materials in art, science, literacy, math, movement and dramatic play are available to the children. Classroom ratios are set by NAEYC standards. This provides your young child with the nurturing and individual attention necessary to grow and thrive.
