Infant Program (2-12 months)
Babies first year is a crucial and fast growing stage in human development. The objective of our infant program is to promote good, healthy habits for children in their first stage of learning and development.
Young children learn through sensory exploration, and our curriculum is developed and implemented focusing on the five sensory skills: visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile, and taste. We are committed to providing an array of activities that will promote and support self learning through exploration of materials in the environment. For example painting with whipped cream, and food coloring allows babies to taste, touch, smell, see different colors, mix them and play.
Toddler Program (13-24 months)
The second year of life marks a great millstone as children develop self awareness and struggle to become independent. This is the most important stage of development and a time to foster self Esteem. Children focus their learning on become independent and self guided. The aspect of this program is to foster independence and healthy habits: self feeding, self cleaning, self- resting, and inner self control and discipline.
Our program focuses on independent and creative thinking. When children develop language skills and learn to communicate with teachers it allows them to engage and share their ideas, thoughts, and learning experiences. This ability to communicate leads to high levels of self esteem.
Wobbler Program (2-4 years)
Children in this age group are learning about social structures; family, friends and communities. Social skills are flourishing as children engage in play. Taking on roles and negotiating with other children teaches important skills of self control and self discipline.
The focus of the wobbler curriculum is to learn about roles in society, family structure, and cultural differences, as well as refining abilities and skills learned as a toddler. The children are exposed to a range of activities aimed to help them refine their gross and fine motor skills, such as puzzles, building blocks, painting, collage, food preparation and science experiements. Children also learn about the world around them by pretending, role playing, and dramatic play.
Our Spanish immersion curriculum is split into four age based programs...
Children are born without a language. Language is influenced by the environment that they develop and grow in. By communicating in Spanish on a daily basis, we start to build the foundation for billingual development. Our Spanish immersion curriculum is taught not only through speaking Spanish, we use music, stories, and games to help build their vocabulary and continue to develop their bilingual skills.
Our curriculum is divided into four programs based on the developmental stages of early childhood. In each program we will give your child assessments to understand their knowledge base and skill sets so we can understand where they are in terms of benchmarks and milestones. This information is used to tailor the curriculum to their specific needs, so they can move forward in the right direction. Each program is designed to provide an array of age appropriate activities that will promoted and support self-learning through exploration of materials in their environment.
Preschool Program (4-6 years)
Our Preschool program is the final phase before children will enter Kindergarten, so the primary objective of our program is to continue refining those areas of learning that are still being mastered. We assess and evaluate each child again, and promote learning in areas that are fundamental for transitioning into the elementary main stream programs. Our preschool program curriculum promotes the foundations for academic rigor; pre-math, pre-writing, pre-reading, pre-science, art and music concepts are taught.
In addition to refining skills, this program focuses on creative thinking, and socialization with a hands-on approach. Preschool children have previous knowledge and lots of new skills they are beginning to master. Preschool is the time when they start to use what they know and be creative. Children use their imagination to understand the world around them. Their social skills are developing, and they are more familiar with activities and start to use their skills more comfortably. As they practice, their skills become more solid and refined.
