8 WEEKS - 29 MONTHS
Infants and toddlers grow tremendously between the ages of birth and 3 years old and at their own individual rates. We believe during these ages that the focus must be about each individual child’s needs and development. Activities are planned around each individual child’s development and interests, likes and dislikes, and encourages exploration of their world and personal growth.
Fostering partnerships between families and our staff helps to us to develop strong relationships for the children in our care. Therefore, by utilizing a Continuity of Care model we can give families, caregivers, infants and toddlers the opportunity to develop strong bonds and relationships with one another. Infants and toddlers stay with the same caregivers from when they start through age 3. By staying with the same caregiver over a span of time, infants and toddlers interact with the same one or two adults each day during the entire time they are in the program. This helps them develop a sense of security, trust, and warmth with their caregivers in a daycare setting without transitioning to new rooms and teachers at arbitrary dates

Our toddler program is designed to meet the developmental needs and high energy levels of children who are transitioning from toddler to preschooler. This program prepares children for the larger works of the primary classroom with a focus on self-care, internal self-discipline and the ability to make choices in the classroom.
The children are exposed to math materials that help them develop an awareness of numbers, counting and basic math operations. At this stage, the children also have access to a special language area with materials to develop the preliminary skills for writing and reading.
Here your toddler will transform into their own little individual! We provide a flexible schedule that includes art, group time, centers (blocks, manipulative, science, library), and outdoor play. Teachers guide the day with age-appropriate, theme-based lesson plans that promote learning through hands on discovery.
There is a heavy emphasis on language development and social skills. Our teachers focus on developing the social abilities that our 3 year old's will need as they grow, including sharing, manners, healthy habits, and friendships. They are encouraged to develop self-help skills and independent thinking. During group time teachers use games and play to help children recognize colors, shapes, numbers, and beginning science and math concepts. Children will participate in group art projects, nature walks, organized outdoor play, and independently work at the centers.
At this age the children are focused and well rounded with a solid grasp of what they like, what they want to do, and how things work. With their teachers acting as guides and facilitators of learning, the children spend most of their time involved in hands-on activities that tie into academic principles. Our teachers skillfully weave in academic goals and objectives as they build on what children can do and challenge them to try new things. The children contribute their own ideas and use their own problem-solving strategies to explore the environment around them.
Children practice writing, have access to a variety of age appropriate books and language materials. While they still enjoy building with blocks and using their imagination in dramatic play, they also crave the pride of being able to write their name, learn their letters, and prepare for kindergarten. If you want your child to be prepared for kindergarten, our program lays a great foundation and will set them up for a successful kindergarten year!
