Designed With Children In Mind

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Social and emotional development – building positive, nurturing relationships.
  • Fine and gross motor development – working towards the ability to roll, crawl, sit up, grasp objects, and pull themselves up.
  • As the children get ready to move on to Early Toddlers, they begin to show interest or mastery in walking and feeding themselves.

We believe children learn best during times of play, and always strive to provide them with entertaining and educational activities which help them reach their milestones. We also believe that a strong relationship between teacher and family is the foundation for child success.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Social and emotional development – beginning to engage with other children.
  • Language development – communicating verbally or non-verbally and learning some simple signs, such as letting the teacher know if they need “more” or if they are “all done”.
  • As the children get ready to move on to Middle Toddlers, they become more confident in walking and balancing and begin to use utensils when eating.

At this age, the children are learning a lot of new skills and really beginning to explore their environment. We provide them with a variety of learning opportunities through constructive play, as well as learning activities that promote self-help skills.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Social-emotional development – beginning to initiate play with peers, express preferences and respond to redirection.
  • Language and literacy development – beginning to use sounds for many purposes, repeat words with prompting, and utter 2-3 words sentences.
  • As the children get ready to move on to Older Toddlers, they begin to show knowledge of routines, participate in cleaning up with assistance, and begin showing interest in self-care.

Our approach to teaching toddlers involves learning through play. We like to encourage and support children as they develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Physical health and motor development – beginning to show interest in using the toilet, washing hands, and self-care routines.
  • Social-emotional development – beginning to develop friendships and preferences.
  • As the children get ready to move on to our Preschool classrooms, they start to use writing and drawing tools purposefully, recognize their name, and manage classroom rules and routine with occassional reminders.

As children learn through constructive play, they cultivate the necessary skills that will assist them in their mental, physical, and social-emotional growth. Moreover, they begin to develop a sense of self and independence, generate an understanding of the world around them, and begin to trust known adults.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Physical health and motor development – beginning to use the toilet independently, take care of belongings and classroom materials, and become comfortable when holding a pencil.
  • Literacy development – beginning to recognize some uppercase letters as well as letters in their name.
  • As the children get ready to move on to Pre-Kindergarten, they begin to gain persistence by investing time within an activity and transitioning independently with few reminders.

In this first classroom in the transition from toddler to preschool, children are introduced to new ways of learning, solving problems, building positive relationships with teachers and peers, and ways of becoming an independent student.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Physical health and motor development – beginning to use the toilet independently, take care of belongings and classroom materials, and become comfortable when holding a pencil.
  • Literacy development – beginning to recognize some uppercase letters as well as letters in their name.
  • As the children get ready to move on to Pre-Kindergarten, they begin to gain persistence by investing time within an activity and transitioning independently with few reminders.

Our goal is to create a learning environment where children can acquire a sense of belonging, establish friendships, and assimilate academically. Moreover, we encourage children to open their minds and explore new things, become more independent, and let their creativity blossom.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Social and emotional development – beginning to show respect for each other and themselves, make independent choices, and come up with alternative solutions when solving problems.
  • Literacy and language development – becoming familiar with upper- and lowercase letters, writing their first and last name, taking turns during a conversation, and becoming familiar with sight words.

Our goal is that by helping children become self-aware of their emotions and giving them the tools to cope with them, they will gain confidence in making successful and positive choices in and out of the classroom.

  • Literacy and language development – becoming familiar with upper- and lowercase letters, writing their first and last name, taking turns during a conversation, and becoming familiar with sight words.

As teachers, we provide a positive, learning-centered environment that focuses on the whole child’s development, especially social-emotional and kindergarten-readiness skills.

Child Developmental Goals Include:

  • Strenghtening the social and emotional bonds between the children and teachers in the classroom.
  • Getting them ready for bigger responsibilities at home and at school, including classroom cleaning and assisting other children.
  • Helping them understand the responsibilities of balancing school and play, including homework, reading, and both teacher- and child-led scientific exploration.

We believe every student has a passion for something. It is the teacher goal to help them find that passion and inspire them to reach for it. We provide a safe place where children can be themselves, confide in the teachers, and learn to trust in their own judgement.
