Infant/Toddler

“Play turns out to be so stunningly essential to childhood, it's like love, sunshine & broccoli all juiced together.”  Lenore Skenazy
Infant Class
We accept infants starting at 3 months up to 15 months of age. Our class maintains a child to teacher ratio of 3 to 1, with lots of individual focus.
 
Our babies have room to roll, crawl and explore in our spacious infant area.  They also enjoy music and baby gym classes daily! Our skilled, certified staff provides a safe and nurturing environment for your precious little one, with many oportunities for growth and development.
Infant parents' set their own schedule (with a 3 day a week minimum) and our staff supports this. 
Toddler Class
Children ages 15  to 23 months are welcomed into our Toddler class where they enjoy a 4 to 1 child to teacher ratio (with a 3 day a week minimum). Our toddlers have a very large classroom area filled with hands-on equipment.  
 
Our creative, caring staff supports development with a rich, process oriented curriculum, and lots of fun, messy art and science exploration.
 
Children enjoy cooking, yoga and dance classes as well as daily gym and music in our "little gym" outfitted specially for the under 3 set. We also enjoy our spacious outdoor playground every day we can! 
Transition Class

Our Transition class is designed for children on the cusp of entering preschool - ages 2 to 2 years 9 months.

We maintain a child to teacher ratio of 4 to 1, and provide a glimpse of preschool life to our oldest toddlers.  They enjoy their own unique classroom setting where they explore an exciting curriculum (with a 3 day a week minimum).

Teachers lead children through art, science, math and cooking activities, and help them understand concepts such as colors, shapes, numbers and letters. All children are introduced to potty use and sitting in big kid seats for snacks and lunch time.

 

They have a daily circle time with stories and finger plays.  Children have daily music and gym classes, and enjoy dance class 3 mornings per week. Every day the weather cooperates includes outdoor play in our wonderful playground.
