An Ideal Learning Environment
A well-developed child care environment motivates and enhances learning. We provide a well-organized, orderly, planned and safe environment, flexible, we are able to adjust to meet the needs of different children. It’s our job to ensure classrooms and other learning spaces for children make them feel welcome, secure and ready to learn
Our classrooms are specifically designed based on age group:
Infants & Toddlers: This program include a nice mix of activities during the day to teach different skills, such as singing, dancing, and storytelling. We prepare infants & toddlers for preschool with our daily routines, activities, and interactions with their peers.
Twos & Early Preschool: Our program for two- to three-year-old children can help each child have academic advancements with our thorough learning areas. An extensive study by the U.S. National Institutes of Health found that young children had higher cognitive and academic achievement scores as teens if they spent time in high-quality daycare as young children.
Preschool: Our Preschool program for the four -year- old children is a combination of freedom and planned instruction. This provides children with success and the confidence they need by using a well developed curriculum and materials placed in their classroom to enhance each child free time. We use these different approaches for teaching as each child learns differently. We want each child to have the proper tools they need to be successful learners.
Pre-k & Jr. Kindergarten: Our STEM-focused early education for our five-year-old children helps develop skills vital to success in kindergarten. Our top quality Pre-K & Jr. K programs yields a long list of benefits that go beyond test scores. Early learning impacts everything from cognitive and emotional growth to social achievement and adult life outcomes. Cognitive growth includes sensory and motor interactions with the world, as well as verbal skills
Cleanliness is essential, so we take significant precautions to prevent the spread of germs.
We train our educators on the best health and safety regulations so that they are knowledgeable and have the best practices to perform when cleaning.
In the infant areas, all educators,staff, and parents wear booties to limit outside germs.
