Class Descriptions

18-30 Month Old Classes

In this program, warm and nurturing staff will introduce your child to a group setting where they will learn classroom routines and expectations. Activities focus on fine and gross motor development, fostering positive social/emotional interactions with peers, and lay a foundation for academic success.

Daily read alouds, music and movement activities, and arts and crafts expose children to a variety of topics and facilitate learning. Caring staff will help ease separation and encourage independence.

Children do not need to be potty-trained.

2 and 3 Year Old Classes

The program helps builds a foundation for school readiness. Children are engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate lessons with the goal of promoting academic success, social/emotional growth, and increasing physical capabilities.

Daily read alouds, small group lessons, and learning centers driven by student interests create a warm and fun environment to grow and thrive. Student-led play creates an environment rich in opportunities for growth.

For 2-year-olds and 3-year-old classes, children develop gross motor skills through active play in gross motor spaces. For three-year-old only classes, gross motor development occurs through weekly gym and swim lessons.

For 2-year-old and 3-year-old classes, children do not need to be potty-trained; for 3-year-old only classes, children should be potty trained.

3 and 4 Year Old Classes

Building on previous experiences, 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds grow their academic and social/emotional skills through increased exposure to more advanced concepts and facilitated center time.

Classes focus on social interactions and learning through fun and hands on activities that incorporate early literacy skills, music and movement, STEM, and play. Children experience gross motor development through weekly gym and swim lessons as well as other enrichment experiences.

Children should be potty-trained.

4 and 5 Year Old Classes

Our most rigorous class prepares children to enter kindergarten the following year. Students engage in hands-on learning focused on academic and social/emotional growth, creating the strong foundation needed to meet the demands of full day kindergarten.

Classes focus on learning through fun activities that incorporate early literacy skills, music and movement, STEM, and play. Children experience gross motor development through weekly gym and swim lessons as well as other enrichment experiences.

Children must be potty-trained.
