Nursery and Infant Classrooms (6 weeks to 12 months of age)

Infants, up to one year, are provided activities that are appropriate for their development. The curriculum for this age is children’s literature based. Activities are developed in coordination with a preselected book appropriate for infants. Each day a pre-planned activity is introduced to your child.

 

Read It Once Again

All classrooms beyond our infants will engage in the Read It Once Again curriculum. Read It Once Again is a comprehensive early childhood educational program that uses familiar children’s literature to provide a solid foundation of the basic skills necessary for children to be successful in kindergarten.  It includes activities that provide explicit instruction on the most basic foundational skills in the common domains of speech/language, cognitive, gross motor, fine motor, daily living, and socialization skills.

Pre-Toddler and Toddler Classrooms (12 months to 2 years of age)

Our Pre-Tot and Toddler Classrooms focus on this first level of learning through morning, language, and music groups, sensory and art activities, and free play.

 

Preschool (2 years of age to kindergarten)

Our curriculum also concentrates on a higher level of foundational skills through activities for phonemic awareness, math, science, creative writing, and social studies. Our preschool classrooms include this second level of learning through center times. 

Our curriculum includes detailed lesson plans, which can be found on our child’s classroom’s parent board. Lesson plans are designed on a three-phase system:

1.    Prepare activities to introduce a skill or concept.

2.    Skills and concepts are introduced as a group.

3.    Individual activities are available during center time to practice skills and concepts on their own or with classmates.
