In our Infant class each little one has his/her own eating and sleeping schedule. With this in mind we cater to each child's needs while providing stimulating interaction that fosters each child's emotional and physical growth. Our infant program is designed to make each little one feel safe, secure, and loved.

Our infant room staff is knowledgeable in age appropriate activities and milestones that your baby needs. Your baby will receive one on one bonding time with their caregivers, floor activities to help foster developing gross motor skills, story time to begin language development and introduction to music.

Our mixed age infant room allows the children to participate in secure and continuous relationships with their teachers until they are ready to transition to the Waddler classroom.

Brave Bears
Toddlers (Ages 2-3)

Ratio 1:6

The Brave Bear classroom is for children age 2 to 3 years and is designed to be a supportive transition from the toddler years to the preschool years. Each day, children have the opportunity to engage in playful and hands-on experiences that support a child’s sense curiosity as they engage in sensory and art experiences, listen to stories, sing and dance, and explore the classroom environment. Through these daily experiences, the children build their fine motor skills, their cognition, and their self-concept. 

Children in the this classroom are given age-appropriate responsibilities such as beginning to take ownership over toilet mastery and restroom use, helping keep the classroom clean by putting away materials when they are finished using them, and serving themselves snack.

The Laughing Lion is a mixed-age preschool and pre-kindergarten classroom focuses on development leel and learning styles. It is designed to create self-directed, independent thinkers and doers in a supportive and enriching environment.  Adapting the learning atmosphere to each child’s developmental level helps the children to work at their own pace, and challenges them with activities they can succeed at.  Everyday the children build social, cognitive, and problem solving skills through Montessori shelf work, role playing activities, books, conversations, as well as interactions with peers and teachers, and structured play. These are crucial skills that help bridge and secure a smooth transition from preschool to kindergarten and leave the child with educational anticipation and continued optimism.
