We will be changing to the child development cooperative effective July 1,
program is developmentally based and child-oriented. The curriculum
provides hands-on activities in art, science & nature, music,
movement, language development, dramatic play, math and reading
readiness, cooking, physical development, fine motor development,
swimming lessons and field trips.
Our curriculum is delivered in both morning and afternoons; not
just during the morning hours, with custodial afternoon care, which is
what you may find with other programs
Our curriculum encourages toddlers to explore their
world in a child-centered way, experiencing new sights, sounds,
textures, movements, and interactions in a safe and trusting
atmosphere. It is a blend of teacher facilitated and individual
learning experiences, incorporated within a multi-sensory, hands-on
approach. The curriculum stimulates readiness to speak
and socialize and they begin to perform independently. This is when
self-help skills are introduced. They are given the opportunity to
explore, while developing an ability to think, reason, question and
experiment. Each day offers a new variety of experiences to include
story and songs; art and music; sand and water play, as well as
outside activity. Sensory activities include shapes, letters, colors,
body parts and movement.
toddler center serves children ages 12 months to 2.75 years.
Our preschool center serves children ages 2.75 to 5 years old. We are
open from 7:00AM to 5:30PM Monday through Friday. We offer two, three,
and five-day per week programs for preschool and a five-day per week
program for toddlers.
Tuition is paid
on a monthly or semi-monthly basis. A
non-refundable application fee is due with application to the center
and a non-refundable registration fee and materials fee are required at
registration. Tuition is due on
the child's first day.
The staff is comprised of both professional and para-professional
teachers. Staffing for the center meets and exceeds the licensing
requirements related to age, educational background, continuing
education and teacher/child ratios.
One morning snack, lunch and one afternoon snack are
served each day.
Occasionally we will supplement the curriculum with
field trips for the preschoolers. Parents are notified in advance and
encouraged to participate.
Swim lessons are offered periodically through the
year. Classes are designed for 3-to-5 years olds and limited to five
children per instructor. This provides very individualized
instruction. Recreational swimming for four to five-year olds is
included in our curriculum as well. All children who participate in
recreational swim and swim lessons must be potty trained.
