There are three ways to ultimate success:
The first way is to be kind.
The second way is to be kind.
The third way is to be kind.

New Toddler Class

 

9:30am to 11:30am

The Toddler class meets Monday & Wednesday mornings.

In order to enroll in the 2's Program in September, your child must be 2 years old on or before September 1st during the school year in which they will attend.

Our 2’s program encourages curiosity, mobility, exploration, and  imaginative expression in a safe and loving environment. Playful lessons will nurture a new or emerging skill connecting topics to the seasonal happenings during the preschool year. Your toddler will be positively introduced to circle time, story time, snack time, indoor/outdoor free play, art and music. 

Each group or individual interaction is designed to foster and support social/emotional, motor, language and cognitive growth and development. The 2’s program carefully matches toddler friendly activities to traditional pre-literacy and pre-math skills and concepts which aim to compliment our 3’s program.

We focus on play based learning and developing independence. Social/emotional, cognitive, and language development are fostered in a nurturing and center based environment. Motor skills are refined through play and carefully selected lessons. Each month we explore a new thematic unit. These include apples, pumpkins, family, snow, plants and so much more.

 

Our curriculum will cover shapes, colors, numerals 1-10 and the alphabet and expose the children to many wonderful books.

In order to enroll in the 4's Program in September, your child must be 4 years old on or before December 1st during the school year in which they will attend.

Our 4’s program strives to build relationships with each student through positive interactions. Kindness, empathy and respect are modeled and encouraged throughout their play explorations and class activities. Daily lessons are conversational and engaging with a focus on emerging literacy - letter-sound associations, ABC order, written language and letter formation. Early math skills are gently introduced by way of songs, rhymes, poems, activities and games.

 

Our classroom environment offers a comfortable schedule with simple routines and transitions. Our “learning centers” extend beyond the walls of the classroom - large outdoor and indoor play areas are utilized for motor skill development. The heart of our 4’s program is to enhance each child’s social/emotional well-being while preserving their love for playful learning.
