Our Programs and Curriculum
Infant Program - Beginning at 6 weeks:
Dramatic changes are taking place in all areas of growth and development during an infant’s first 12 months. Our infant rooms are designed to promote key areas of development. Through nurturing, cuddling, talking, singing and reading stories, our teachers are trained to encourage the baby’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language development. We know how much babies like to move and explore and because of this, hazards such as swings and play seats are not used in our infant rooms.
Infant Program - Beginning at 12 months:
Exploration takes the center stage as infants become more mobile. Curious and on the move, the mobile infant seems to get into “everything” becoming more adventurous in a quest to learn more about the world around them. Our teachers provide trustworthy support and care to our mobile infants through a warm and cozy environment where they can develop confidence and competence.
Toddler Program - Beginning at 18 months:
A toddler’s world is filled with exploration, questioning and discovery. Toddlers are determined to find meaning in events, objects and words. Our environment offers toddlers chances to be in control and, with guidance from their teacher, the opportunity to participate in group play, fantasy play and independent activities. Language development is fostered by answering the “why” and “how” questions.
Young Preschool - 2 and 3 years of age:
As you watch a young preschooler move, talk, play and work it’s amazing to see how much they have learned and accomplished in such a short time. Trust, independence, and initiative are just a few traits that preschoolers experience. Teachers guide children and encourage them to progress at their own pace according to their individual needs and abilities.
Preschool - 4 years of age and Pre-Kindergarten:
Our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Program is designed to encourage children to explore and be challenged to learn. Our learning centers encourage self-reliance and the development of self-confidence. Children begin to learn how to make decisions on their own by navigating from center to center. Within our Pre-K Program, our goal is to prepare your child to successfully enter Kindergarten. This is achieved by following the Ohio Content Standards provided by the Ohio Department of Education.
Our before and after School Age Program provides a learning experience that keeps your child interested with fun and stimulating activities. Our experienced teachers provide a nurturing and supportive environment for your child every day. To ensure your child has a day with both learning and fun, our teachers allow each child to select their own area of interest. Your child can choose to work in a small group or on their own. A familiar setting combined with familiar faces creates a comfortable environment for your child.
