Each program offers a wide variety of age-appropriate activities and learning opportunities. We provide a balance of self-selected and teacher-directed activities, individual and large group activities, as well as indoor and outdoor experiences. We use learning centers that invite children to explore, experiment, create, and ask questions, and we believe in the power of partnering with parents and caregivers to ensure that each child develops to their fullest potential. It is our goal that each child goes home daily with a love for learning, a love for him/herself, and a love for one another.
Two Year old
Must turn 2 by Sept. 1 of current year
The weekly themes in the 2 Year Old class promote independence through child centered and teacher directed activities throughout the day. Self-help skills such as eating skills, potty training, hand washing, and independently cleaning up are among the skills taught in this program.
The Two Year Old Program introduces students to circle time activities including calendar, weather, counting, story time, and songs. The age appropriate activities in this classroom promote taking turns, cooperating, sharing, and expressing feelings in an appropriate manner.
Three Year old
Must turn 3 by Sept. 1 of current year
Your child must be toilet trained
Three year olds are just beginning to realize that the feelings of other people differ from their own; they are learning empathy. They are leaving the ‘me’ oriented world of a two year old and entering the world of peer relationships and self-control. Our main objective for this age group is to provide a solid foundation of social skills for interacting in a group setting and one-on-one with a peer. Along with strong social skills, we encourage cognitive learning in the areas of early math skills, pre-literacy, science, and music; provide opportunities for small and large gross motor skills; and foster independence and self-confidence.
Must turn 4 by Sept. 1 of current year
The objective of our themed-based VPK program is to provide your child with the skills necessary to make a smooth transition into kindergarten. Our comprehensive in-house curriculum meets the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year-Olds and builds on the social, cognitive, early literacy, math and science foundation gained while in our three-year old program. We foster a child’s natural curiosity about the world around them by providing daily hands-on, multi-sensory experiences that encourage creating, building, learning, and growing through play.
