Our infant program is based on the RIE philosophy, which encourages each baby to be on their own schedule. RIE fosters basic trust in the child to be an initiator, an explorer and a self-learner. It also has an environment for the child that is physically safe, cognitively challenging, and emotionally nurturing, including time for uninterrupted play. Our babies are an active participant in their care giving. The caregiver follows their cues to meet their needs. Respect plays an important role in the classroom. The caregiver shows each infant respect, for example, by not picking up an infant without telling him or her beforehand, talking directly to the child, and by waiting for the child’s response. The well being of each individual child is the goal of the caregiver as they work as a team with the parents to form a partnership to benefit each family.
We provide a safe and stimulating environment for babies, helping them establish important\ relationships and positive learning skills.
Our Toddler curriculum places a strong importance on cultivating self-identity through nurturing guidance and exploration through a wide range of age-appropriate activities that build character, creativity, confidence.
Our preschool program encourages curiosity, promotes play, and fosters self awareness which supports intellectual and social development.
Seeing and smelling - such pleasing experiences for infants outdoors. Our covered porch allows our youngest students to explore the outdoors and gain new perspectives. Our well-equipped playground not only enhances this physical well-being but also gives our students newfound appreciation of how their bodies move in space. Our Jean Road campus has a very large outdoor, uncovered playground in addition to two secure, covered porches - one for infants and the other for toddlers.
We take great pride in providing our children with a healthy, well-balanced and nutritional menu which changes daily. We plan our lunch menu a month at a time, keeping it as seasonal as possible. Our on-site chef prepares daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks for each class, making them nutritious and kid-friendly. For infants, we follow each child's individual feeding schedule and needs as requested by parents.
