Educational Programs

We set ourselves apart with education. Helping children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually – using "play" as our primary teacher tool – is both our passion and our mission. We encourage and empower our teachers' enthusiasm for learning. Our wide range of age-appropriate activities and experiences results in something special: children who can't wait to share their latest discovery.

To help you feel as if you're part of your child's day, we have many ways to share his or her adventures, moods, and milestones. In addition to detailed and insightful communications are your child progresses, our centers support formal and informal check-ins. Studies show early childhood is often the most important time in your child's education. That's why we design our programs to help your son or daughter become a lifelong learner – someone who will never stop wanting to know why, how, where, and what.

All children need opportunities to be responsible, to make choices, and to be treated with respect. Our programs encourage your child's growth and development with early learning experiences that build a strong foundation for his or her social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills.

We believe each child has unique talents and interests. Our teachers honor these differences by providing your child with customized attention and activities that enable your son or daughter to learn and grow at his or her own pace and in your child's own way. This hands-on approach, combined with our balanced, is designed to encourage children to become confident, happy and self-aware.

The underlying principles of our program are:
  1. Children learn through active exploration.
  2. Children initiate their own learning.
  3. Learning takes place through open-ended experiences.
  4. Adults are facilitators of children's learning.

Physical Development
We offer opportunities to develop coordination, balance, and agility. We work on developing both the small and large muscles of the body. The brain wires for motor development from birth to 2 years and refines that wiring between 2 and 6 years.

Social-Emotional Skills
Children learn to control their behaviors, build interpersonal relationships, self esteem and self help skills. The brain will wire for social behaviors and emotional intelligence from birth to 4 years. It will refine and strengthen this wiring between 4 and 8 years.
Communication Skills
We build both receptive (listening) and expressive (speaking) language skills. The most fertile time in a child’s life for the acquisition of vocabulary is from birth to 5 years. By the time a child is 5 years, he or she possesses three-fifths of his or her vocabulary.

Thinking Skills
Children develop the understanding of cause and effect relationships and practice problem solving in everyday activities. The understanding of cause and effect relationships, the basis for problem solving, wires between birth and eighteen months. Problem solving itself wires between eighteen months and age 4 years.


Assessments

We use a variety of methods and tools – including observations, portfolios, and developmental checklists – to continuously monitor and support your child’s development. Constant interaction with the children allows teachers to appropriately assess their skills and developmental levels. In addition to influencing the ways teachers adjust and modify curriculum, daily observations also help teachers complete developmental checklists and collect work samples for portfolios.
Developmental checklists help teachers observe, record, and evaluate each child’s skills, knowledge, behaviors, and accomplishments. They reflect common objectives and expectations in classrooms like ours that are structured around developmentally appropriate activities. The behaviors and skills described in the checklists are those considered to be important and developmentally appropriate for children within each age group.

The teachers of our youngest learners maintain portfolios of each student full of photographs, anecdotal notes, and work samples. From two years of age through pre kindergarten, your child’s portfolio will illustrate his or her abilities at the time each item was collected – which gives you an at-a-glance way to see your child’s progress over time. Constant monitoring is the key. You always know how your child is – socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
