We are a state-certified child care program with a toddler and preschooler curriculum of both indoor and outdoor learning and play activities.
We provide a wonderful daily schedule that supports
-developing friendships, empathy, boundaries, and good manners
-learning to read and write
-learning basic Spanish
-gardening and composting
-monthly themes and projects
and much more!
We have two play rooms: one in which we also eat and do art, and the other in which napping children sleep in the afternoon.
Our groups are kept small for the best well-being of the children and our assistant teachers. Our biggest group size is currently eight, but we often split up into groups of four for a calmer, happier, and more attentive environment. We have a block station, reading and relaxing area, train table and cars corner, and large dramatic play area. We also have an indoor garage play-space with trampoline, rocking horse, and tunnel tent.
Additionally, we have a large, fenced yard in which we play daily, practice basic gardening, and have many fun toys: big cars for riding in, balls with basketball hoop and soccer net, large playhouse, and more.
Our meals are mostly organic, wholesome (and whole grain), and based on the USDA Food Program. I can easily accommodate vegan and gluten-free families. :-)
