Mondays – Fridays 7am – 5pm
During the formative age children embrace foundation skills, quest knowledge and build on their interest.
We offer a mixed group learning experience and caters to children
Ages 3 months – 5 years
Infants 3 months – 23 months
Young Tots- 2 years old
Our young tots all have different personalities. Some are bashful, soft-spoken, attached, tearful, mostly clothed in diapers (some are potty trained), they display little or no attention span, are often messy eaters, they will want to do things themselves, yes they are curious and can easily get frustrated due to their inability to articulate and speak audibly. They have an enormous desire to learn and discover their surroundings.
Luckily our program allows them to discover, observe and engage in cooperative and parallel play with their peers. While we closely monitor children in our care to provide support and exploration, we also allow them to engage in unstructured play. This method gives them room to engage in activities that interest and stimulate them while learning at their own pace. Children participate in hands-on activities allowing them to discover the cultural world around them through exploration.
Early Learners – 3 years old
Here comes autonomy. These little ones have drama and sound effects all over them. They will not stop until they get your attention. They are very quizzical, less reserved and will venture out to investigate and gain knowledge on their own. They are loving, empathetic, competitive -everything is ‘mine’ often when another peer attempts to play with a toy that was just idly sitting. These children will engage in friendship rivalry – sometimes to the point of not keeping their hands to themselves. Hmm, sharing with friends may be a stretch so let’s say, they still do not like to share but, are learning the meaning of taking turns. Many at this age are already potty trained and wearing underwear, for those that aren’t then you will find them in Pull Ups.
Luckily our group allows these children to explore their own interest. We encourage children to take risks and try new activities while scaffolding. Children in this session learn to build self-confidence, develop body awareness and learn skills that prepare them for more adventures. Our activities incorporate social, emotional and physical skills. We help children explore basic mathematics, number sense, earth science, visual arts, dramatic play and early literacy skills.
Pre-Kindergarten – 4 years – 5 years old
These children do not tire, they have an ongoing reservoir of energy that allows them to engage in dramatic plays, trips around the world, exploration, and inventions. They usually love to be engaged all day – they do not like to take afternoon naps. To help their busy minds we allow them to read or manipulate puzzles during the scheduled daily naps. Most of these children are budding artists making beautiful representation drawings..yes stick people should be carefully interpreted. They love to engage in science projects, bake in the kitchen, help with younger children and most of all they love to be themselves. They use good manners especially table manners. Don’t be surprised if they ask for privacy while using the potty – yes they are fully potty trained.
Luckily our program helps these children prepare for Kindergarten. We engage in building foundation skills like using the interactive handwriting without tears and Jolly Phonics early literacy program. We work one on one with children to help them communicate effectively, explore mathematics in shape, space and time. We help children learn to classify, compare and contrast. Our adventures have us exploring life science, earth science, creative arts, dramatic play, and music.
