When you look in our infant and toddler rooms, you might see a caregiver playing “peek-a-boo” with a four-month old, signing “more” or “bottle” to a one-year old, reciting a nursery rhyme to a toddler as she changes a diaper, or reading a book about sea life to a group of young three year olds in front of our teaching aquarium. Each of these simple, loving, everyday experiences has a profound effect on a young child’s development. Just as food nourishes the body, these experiences nourish your child’s brain.
At our schools, we know how important the early years are in a child’s development. When we care for your child, we have an awesome responsibility. Recent research now reveals that the first three years of life are more critical to a child’s development than we ever imagined. Because this is the time of your child’s most rapid brain development, we have the terrifically important task of helping to build your child’s foundation for lifelong learning.
Care & Security for Your Child
We take on this task with tremendous enthusiasm and dedication. Our infant and toddler caregivers are actually “educarers”, as they carefully blend the responsibility of providing the highest quality care and security to your child, while at the same time offering your child a wealth of learning experiences through everyday activities. Through warm and responsive care, we help shape your child’s future development and ability to learn.
The keystone in our high quality program is a curriculum that is specifically designed for children from birth to five years’ old. Taking theories and lessons from our curriculum, our teachers design daily routines that focus on supporting and nurturing the developmental stages that each individual child is experiencing.
