3's - Ages 2 1/2 to 3 1/2

Children use learning activities focused on dramatic play, mathematics, creative arts, language, and sensory exploration. The main goal in this classroom is to teach socialization skills such as sharing, taking turns, and following routine directions while adapting a little more structure. Small and large group activities are implemented daily. We have a 7 to 1, child/teacher ratio.

Pre-K 1 - Ages 4 to 5

Our Pre-K 1 students still learn through play, but have a more structured classroom environment.  The children are provided lots of hands-on learning activities and experiences.  Literacy is provided daily promoting letter recognition and reading skills are introduced.  Our teachers in this classroom make sure the students are prepared for the change from preschool to kindergarten. We have a 12 to 1, child/teacher ratio.

2's - Ages 2 to 3

Our two year olds get to experience age appropriate activities and materials that develop confidence, self-esteem, and a love of learning.  Our two year olds engage in a verbal explosion of words, and  they learn to start communicating.  Potty training is started in this classroom for those children that show interest.  We have a 5 to 1, child/teacher ratio. 

Pre-K 2 - Ages 3 to 4

Opportunities are given each day for the children to learn about mathematics, science, art, and literacy while incorporating music and gross motor activities.  Most of these things are learned through play and imagination is encouraged.  Our Pre-K 2 students still learn and are taught the social skills that they need to succeed while in a loving environment.  We have a 10 to 1, child/teacher ratio.

Infants - 6 weeks to 1 year
We provide a safe environment where your infant has the freedom to move and explore.  We have a 4 to 1, child/teacher ratio. Age appropriate materials and equipment that support learning and development are provided.  We have trained, professional teachers that provide the loving care that any infant needs.

Toddlers - Ages 1 to 2
Our toddlers learn through play by exploring the classroom and outside playgrounds.  They get to experience lots of hands-on activities while starting to engage in small group activities.  We have a 5 to 1, child/teacher ratio.
