Our infant rooms are warm inviting places with music, stories, lots of
floor space and a variety of materials that change as the
developmental level of the children dictates. Our teachers
use the Sign 2 Me method of sign language in all of our
infant rooms. The 8 infants in each of these rooms are with
in 4-5 month age range of each other allowing us to keep
them together with two consistent teachers until they all
are ready to transition to toddlers. This consistency build trust
and independence, thus, allowing the children to grow
and flourish in an educationally rich environment.
The toddler rooms are a busy place as the children are becoming even more independent. The toddlers days are a little more structured with the introduction of circle time, cooking projects, music, books, art and free exploration. Signing is continued in the toddler rooms with the addition of spanish at circle time. The children have come to this room as a group from the infant room allowing the children to continue creating strong bonds of friendship.
Our Mixed age rooms are a place of exploration, discovery and accomplishment for the children. The mixed age concept promotes a place where younger children are mentored by older children, siblings can spend their days together and the children stay with a primary teacher through the years. These classrooms offer a variety of learning opportunities that incorporate literacy/language, math, science, problem solving, pretend play, music, large and small motor activities through out the day. The daily schedule is organized to meet the needs of all the children and foster the love of learning.
The Summer Program is a camp type scenario with a weekly theme. Activities during the week reflect upon the field trips taken allowing for continued learning. Chapter books, cooking projects, walking club and free time are all part of the day.
Education Station has been a popular preschool program for numerous years. The program offers children meaningful experiences designed to allow them to develop and be challenged at their own pace.
