Daycare Programs

Enrollment: 2 – 6 years from 7:45 am to 5:45 pm.

Parents can register their child at any time. Parents need to submit the child’s current health form with all immunizations up-to-date.

At our Daycare program, children are engaged in a play-based, child-centered, emergent curriculum that integrates literacy, math, social studies, science, the arts, motor development, and socio-emotional development and skills into all parts of the child’s day. We emphasize the development of higher-level thinking and problem-solving skills, which are the foundation of every good learner’s academic ability. Our teaching strategies are based on goals in five major areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, language, fostering the child’s natural curiosity and creativity.

Unless the weather forbids, children are taken to the park every day to explore nature, jump, skip, and run around playing ball. They enjoy the out-of-doors with their large motor activities.
