Safe and Secure
If you want a program for your older toddler and need a safe and secure place that may also be the "first place away from home and you," this program is just right for you both!
Children do not need to be toilet trained to attend, however it is a part of our everyday curriculum and an important component to our program.
Separation and Attachment
Separation and attachment are experiences that happen all through our lives as human beings. Research and practice confirm that early healthy, strong attachments for young children help them form healthy, strong bonds again and again in life. Our program supports children and families in forming new attachments to other trusted persons - - to adults and maybe even little friends - - in an environment with play and discovery materials that invite curiosity, capture attention, stimulate learning, and encourage language.
Learning Through Play
We believe that play is an effective method of learning. Play is a child’s way of exploring, experimenting, and learning cooperative behavior. Our trained staff utilize play situations to introduce language, science, social studies, music and creative arts. Each child is recognized as a productive individual as they develop self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.
