Early Childhood

Early Childhood

Ages 3-6

Since many of our children will spend a great part of their waking hours with us, it’s especially important to deliver a program that is sensitive to the rhythms of a young child’s day. Our aim is to successfully balance the need for a challenging and stimulating educational environment with an atmosphere that is homelike, cozy and secure.

The emphasis of our program is to create a sense of community and to deal with the practical daily needs of young children, which includes time for solitary work, group play, music, art, outdoor play, and when necessary, napping.
