We enroll children as early as six weeks and they are welcome to attend until their 13th birthday.
We accept infants at six weeks old. We allow our infants to eat and sleep on demand. Checking diapers hourly, our parents' desires on how their child will be cared for are especially important. Once a child begins eating cereal and baby food, we provide that for you. It is the parent's responsibility to provide pre-made bottles, labeled and dated daily. It is also your responsibility to provide ample amounts of diapers and changes of clothing. Click here for a listing of Parent Responsibilities
We begin teaching children at an early age. Implementing sign language, beginning with the babies, we take it one "little step" at a time.
Once a child is one (1) year and walking, we introduce the young wobbler to sitting at a table with their peers and beginning to do crafts and projects. While physical activity is vital to life, we also believe that children need to understand when it is appropriate to wait for others. The goal always being to prepare the child for their next "little step" in our program.
At two and a half (2 1/2), we begin to gear the children to more "group" time, participating in small group activities, led by the teaching staff. At this age, many children are not ready to participate in a chosen activity, so we allow newcomers to make "wise choices" and slowly be implemented into group activity.
Once a child is three (3), we require that they participate in a group setting, learn to make good choices, and also begin to practice early pre-school skills. As each child does grow individually, we allow their personalities to flourish while steering them in a positive direction in their development.
At four (4) we conquer many "little steps" while racing toward preschool graduation in June. We create our curriculum to prepare your child to enter into Kindergarten as a confident, respectful person. While concentrating on the basic pre-kindergarten skills, we also strive to teach self respect and independence.
School age children are given opportunity to work on homework before or after school, and additional worksheets are available to them on a daily basis. During the summer months, thirty (30) minutes of reading, as well as standard lessons are also continued.
We provide your child's food for them while present in our center. Our mealtimes are posted and if a child is present, they will be offered what we are providing. Please know that if your child is a picky eater, we will not make substitutions. If your child has food allergies, it must be indicated on their Health Appraisal, as well as their Child Information Card. We may be able to accommodate your child's food allergies, you may, however, be required to provide an alternative healthy option if necessary. Please inquire at time of enrollment.
Breakfast is served from 7:00 - 7:30 a.m., Morning snack is around 10 a.m., Lunch is served from 12 - 12:30 p.m., and Afternoon snack is around 4 p.m.Click here for a sample menu
All children under the age of six (6) are required to rest during quiet time. Infants sleep on demand, in their crib labeled specifically for them. Children who are one (1) year and older will be given a sanitized mat to rest on during this time. It is the parent's responsibility to provide a blanket for their child's comfort. Please launder your child's blanket weekly. Quiet time is from 12:30 - 2:30 daily.
Every child who is over the age on one (1) will be taken outdoors on a daily basis (weather permitting). We ask that each child has the appropriate outdoor gear on a daily basis. We will participate in outdoor events if the temperature is between 0 and 95. Please make sure your child has suitable gear for all of the seasons.
Helping to prepare your child for the future,
one "little step" at a time.
