For our 2 year-olds, our aim is to build trust by providing safe and loving environment and create consistent schedules to support smooth milestone transitions. Our curriculum focuses on introducing and slowly building their cognitive & language skills with finger-plays, nursery rhymes, poetry and storytelling. Art curriculum for two years olds encourages imaginative expression and exploration of personal choice. Crafts utilizing pencils, crayons and scissors also help develop fine motor skills while outdoor play on bikes and the developmentally stimulating playground promote physical health.
As children enter their 3rd year, they display a heightened level of curiosity towards their environment due to cognitive and physical growth. Our curriculum focuses on building language skills with finger-plays, nursery rhymes, poetry, discussions and storytelling exercises that engage the student’s imagination.
The 4 year old academic year is critical in the preparation for kindergarten readiness. The goals for Preschool development address the whole child, physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Children are becoming confident in their knowledge of various subjects including reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
For 5 & 6 year-olds, Kindergarten Program is a great transitional step between preschool and elementary schools. In this class, children are tasked with a more academic approach than their previous years and cross the threshold of a home-focused curriculum to one that emphasizes cooperative socialization with their peers. In a fun and encouraging learning environment, children will be challenged with material and social interactions that will prep them for their transition to a new school.
We prepare school snacks and meals as natural as possible. We use organic whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Our meals are social events; we set the table with placemats and flowers, sing and eat together. Your child's teacher will provide a snack menu, and will be available to discuss alternatives due to allergies.
The children bring a lunch with them from home. We ask that they bring nutritious food in a lunch pack ; and that can fit into the refrigerator as needed to ward off ant invasions.
