Tiny Toddlers: Ages 4 months to 18 months. Our Tiny Toddler class offers a safe and nurturing environment for your child. We help our infants grow and develop into independent toddlers. Classical music flows in the background, known to improve the cognitive development of young children. Our classroom encourages the development of their fine and large motor skills through music, dance, and exploration. Teachers encourage language through rhyming games, finger play, songs, and books. Children learn to manipulate objects and explore in our sensory-rich classroom. They play, discover, and develop independence, as well as participate in interactive music. Our teachers are intuitive to the needs of each child, as each child is different, with differing needs and development. As the Tiny Toddlers are exploring their surroundings, they build trusting relationships with their teachers who support them throughout the day. We follow the “High Scope” Infant Curriculum, which fosters learning through discovery. Our curriculum is unique and individual just as your child is.
Toddlers: Ages 18 months to 36 months. Language continues to grow as the teacher engages toddlers in conversation and our rich collection of books. The toddler verbalizes needs, multiple word phrases, and expresses emotions while personalities begin to develop. They actively participate in conversations with teachers and peers as they learn to follow one-step directions. The teacher further engages them with finger play songs, musical instruments, storytime, and circle time. Spanish is immersed right into the daily group meeting time. The assortment of activities, help them to develop their fine motor skills as they sort, stack blocks, create art, and complete puzzles. Through dramatic play, they use their imaginations during dress-up and puppetry. Their curiosity is continuously fostered and their inquisitiveness is encouraged.
Nursery 3-4 years: At this grade level, our Little Scholars are ready for school. Through our STEM program, we provide exploration, discovery, and investigative opportunities for children; allowing them to expand their curiosity, knowledge, and inquisitive minds.
Mathematical concepts emerge through play as they sort by size, color, and shape. Beginning writing is encouraged by connecting dotted lines and formulating letters. Our teachers actively engage children in learning experiences that build math and reasoning skills so children can solve problems. Science exploration is introduced at this stage of early childhood. The study of insects, the life cycle of a plant and the metamorphosis of a butterfly will intrigue your child. Reading various books satisfies and expands their curiosity, and lends for some imaginary travel. Music and art are a very important part of their day. Individual piano lessons and Mandarin instruction begin in the Nursery 3’s class.
Pre-K: Ages 4-5 years. Our Pre-K curriculum prepares our Little Scholars for their next step toward kindergarten readiness. With a little guidance from us, we can enhance children’s opportunities to engage in STEAM learning and develop their critical thinking skills. Our STEAM interdisciplinary program incorporates math, technology, science, language arts, music, and art. They thrive and develop in the area of creative thinking, cognitive, emotional, social, and physical growth. The scientific method is taught through our discovery table and classroom experiments, making hypotheses and conclusions. We foster reading readiness through weekly sight words and sentence formation. Their day consists of many opportunities for problem-solving, language, and the development of advanced communication skills. They have developed confidence and mastered sound, letter, and number recognition. Reading readiness emerges in Pre-K and students are enthusiastic mathematicians, engaging in math regularly as they build block towers, make patterns, complete challenging puzzles, or measure their growth. It is clearly evident through their expressions that the children are amazed as they make their discoveries.
