Children need to learn to get along with others. They need to learn to give and share, as well as receive. Each class has free play time scheduled during each day, allowing for interplay with others and a chance to resolve disputes themselves.
Hot meals are served daily and there is a menu posted. Also, morning and afternoon snacks are served. Activities are planned to develop coordination, endurance, strength, and flexibility. A quiet time each day provides for relaxation. Infants and toddlers are not confined to cribs or playpens. They are kept separate from the older children in an area where they are allowed to roll, crawl, and walk safely.
An academic curriculum is followed each day. Themes include subjects, such as colors, shapes, numbers, letters, seasons, food groups, sharing, safety, nature, and many more.
Security comes from schedule and continuity. We closely follow a daily schedule. We firmly believe that hugs are food for emotional growth and stability. Verbal praise and positive reinforcement are the most important rewards for a job well done.
