For many children, our 2's, or "littles", class is a new experience in a classroom with more independence within their choices. In this classroom, we work on concepts like building loving, trusting relationships with adults outside of the home and sharing time, along with classroom space with peers. We believe that if children have a strong relationship with care-givers that is rooted in feeling loved and secure at all points during the day, it frees up space in their minds to focus on learning and exploring. We facilitate this by having small class sizes, consistent teachers, and a family feel with lots of one-on-one interactions. Potty training is usually completed here before moving on to our next class.
In our 3's classroom, children start to have more responsibilities to match their rapidly growing cognitive and social capabilities. In this class, we work on things like self-help skills, taking turns, using words to communicated needs with teachers and peers, and being able to manage emotions in a constructive way. We also work on basic academic skills, such as shapes, colors, numbers, and recognizing their names. We encourage the children to begin engaging their critical thinking skills while exploring the world around them; they have learned that things do happen, now we steer them towards asking why, all while still providing a small class size with skilled and consistent teachers to continue to give the emotional support needed for the children to feel secure and confident. something exciting your business offers?

Our four and five year olds work on kindergarten readiness skills such as counting, using scissors, writing their names, basic math skills, and letter and sound identification. Pre-K is all about seeing how far our curiosity can take us, from complex block structures, to dramatic play with made up characters. Children are encouraged to investigate the world around them, ask questions, and learn through meaningful hands-on lessons. We foster in our graduates a lifelong love of learning.
