Each day children engage in projects and activities that promote language development, mathematical skills, scientific observation and exploration, and artistic expression. Outdoor play and indoor dramatic play and block building are integral parts of the day. As the children interact with adults and each other, they are encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings, to problem solve, to take turns, to negotiate, to resolve conflict peacefully and to act on their creative expression. Children learn in a joyful environment that nurtures learning, builds self-confidence, encourages exploration and creative expression, and stimulates a lifelong love for learning.
Our programs include full-day Preschool, Prekindergarten and Kindergarten. An extended Before and After School Program is provided for these and for older school-age children. Parent-child classes are also offered for parents with children between the ages of 9 months and 2.5 years. In July and August, we also offer an exciting and fun-filled Summer Program.
Although the arts are an integral part of the schedule at all levels, exposure to the range of art forms is augmented with our “Artist-in-Residence” program that brings guest artists to work both in classroom projects or in organized art classes. We anticipate to expand soon our current offerings in the visual arts with similar programs in music, movement and drama.
