Our staff is bilingual in Spanish and will also teach your child in Spanish on a daily basis. This will include story time, circle time 2 times a week and daily interaction with Spanish speakers.
Our program provides infants with a safe environment rich with opportunities to actively explore and enjoy; to see, hear, feel, touch and move. Our specially trained infant staff establishes a nurturing, creative world for your children filled with responsive interactions and language. We use a primary care giving model. Each child and their family are allocated a primary caregiver who works towards establishing a warm, secure relationship with the child and a partnership with the parents. The primary caregiver ensures each child's needs and routines are met, taking a key role in feeding, sleeping, changing, noticing, wondering and playing with each child. When the babies are awake and receptive, they will be carried, talked to and played with. Parents' preference about feeding and sleeping schedules and the child's own patterns govern the course of the day. Our caregiver/child ratio of 1:2 is designed to allow individualized care. A daily communication log is given to parents at the end of the each day, which includes information about eating, sleeping and diapering and any anecdotal information about your child's day.
Our program is designed to accommodate active, curious toddlers.
The hands on classroom environment allows each child to manipulate, explore and discover new materials.
