Infants

4 weeks to 1 year

We enjoy holding and rocking your child during meal times and their bottles are never propped up. Infants are not given a bottle to sleep with in their crib. While we feel honored to feed and care for your child, we encourage nursing mothers to come in whenever possible and spend that precious time with their child. If that is not an option for you, you can freeze breast milk and we will give it to your child.


Each day we play games, sing songs and read stories to the children. Infants take outside buggy walks twice daily for fresh air. They sleep when they’re tired and eat when they’re hungry. Infants spend no more than 20 minutes per day in a swing and bouncy seat. There is a general schedule but the teachers customize the daily routines to match what parents do at home. This makes schedules easier to maintain for busy families. Our infant room opens at 6:30 am and closes at 6:30 pm.

Toddlers

1 year olds

The Bug’s World Class is for children ages 1 to 2 years old. Our toddler room is designed to stimulate your child’s imagination and create an environment that enhances fine and large motor coordination. Each classroom is decorated with bright colors and loaded with interesting, age-appropriate learning centers, and a study area. The children move about the classroom with circle time, art time, free play, lunch, and seat work activities. They also spend supervised time outdoors twice a day. Due to our low teacher child ratio we have created an environment that is nurturing and allows for your child to have individualized attention.


Our main emphasis is on social skills and learning through play. We have language, science, math, dramatic play, manipulative play and art centers for the children. We teach the children manners, social skills, and life skills that will aid them throughout their lives. One way we accomplish this is by having “family style” meals. The teacher sits with the children while they eat and teaches them how to use their utensils, pour their own drinks and to serve themselves and others.

Toddlers

2 year olds

The Jungle Bungalow classroom is for children 2 years old to potty trained. Our preschool program builds on the skills they learned in the toddler class. We continue to work on social and life skills as well as add in math, reading, and writing concepts. Children will be learning how to cut and paste, hold a pencil, and other small and large motor skills.

 

We understand that potty training is a huge milestone in your child’s life. There’s no magic age at which children are ready to start learning how to use the potty, but some develop the necessary physical and cognitive skills between 18 and 24 months of age. If potty training is done too early it can cause anxiety for the parents and the child. In order to ensure your child does not become anxious and is successful we work with each family to determine when their child is ready to potty train. Some of the guidelines we follow are listed below. 

 

Physical signs – Can the child walk and run steadily and have “dry” periods of at least three or four hours, which shows that her bladder muscles are developed enough to hold urine.

 

Behavioral signs – Can the child sit down quietly in one position for two to five minutes, pull her pants up and down, do they dislike the feeling of wearing a wet or dirty diaper, shows interest in others’ bathroom habits, give a physical or verbal sign when she’s having a bowel movement such as grunting, squatting, or telling you, demonstrates a desire for independence, takes pride in her accomplishments and isn’t resistant to learning to use the toilet. This stage is generally a cooperative stage, not a negative or contrary one.

 

Cognitive signs – Can the child follow simple instructions, such as “go get the toy”, understands the value of putting things where they belong, has words for urine and stool, understands the physical signals that mean she has to go and can tell you before it happens or even hold it until she has time to get to the potty.

Preschool

3 year olds

The Barnyard and Under the Sea class is for children who have been potty trained and are at least 2 1/2 years old. Before moving a child to the Barnyard class we work with the parents and teachers to determine if the child is socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively ready to participate in a daily, structured, educational program. The children are introduced to phonics, writing skills, math concepts and much more. They also begin to learn to sit at the table for longer periods and work on “Neat Work, Seat Work”. The skills learned in this class prepare the children for our Pre-Kindergarten program.

 

We emphasizes learning skills that will carry on  with them throughout their educational experience. With loving teachers and a wonderful program, each child walks away with a desire to learn and explore. Our schedule has a variety of activities and maintains a learning environment appropriate for each child’s development. The 3 year old class uses a Pre-K curriculum which focus on learning to count and write as well as letter recognition and the sounds they make.

Pre-Kindergarten

4 year olds

Our Pre-Kindergarten class is Noah’s Ark. Here, the tables are marked and each child has a place to eat, to study, to grow. Centers and calendars, artwork, reading materials, and a computer center give the children lots of areas to keep them interested. The class is full of exciting projects and fun learning. 


Our curriculum is a Kindergarten series that builds letter recognition sounds, counting and writing skills, basic reading and writing. Children work on language and thinking exercises, phonics and reading, writing skills, problem solving skills, math concepts, stories, music, art, and much more. These elements help the children to be prepared and confident when entering Kindergarten.
