Class Goals

15 month: We strive to make the child’s first experience in the classroom a positive one.  Our loving staff offer a wide variety of tactile, visual, and auditory experiences to each child.  They start to learn to follow directions and to listen to the teacher.

2 years: During the year, the children move from parrallel play to group play, sharing and discovering new skills through hands-on experiences in art, music and physical activities.  Learning how to learn and listen are natural by-products of these activities.

3 years: Our goal is to create a loving and positive atmosphere for every child.  Our hope is to develop his/her self-confidence while introducing new skills such as colors, shapes, letters, cutting and gluing skills, while remembering to make learning fun.  All activities are creative and child-centered.  Potty training is required for this age class.

4 years (Pre-K):  We strive to help each child develop a positive self image and a respect for others.  We expose our children to developmentally appropriate readiness skills, such as pre-reading, reading, writing, math, science, and many different kinds of sensory experiences.  Our goal is to help them become socially, emotionally and physically secure with their abilities to begin kindergarden.
