small class ratios + advanced academics
We use and adhere to the Abeka Program for our school curriculum. Each class has distinct goals and objectives for your child’s education and relational advancement. Learn about each of our classes below, and check out our newly added Enrichment Learning classes for all ages.
Our emphasis in the nursery is placed on the child's physical needs, such as feeding and diapering, as well as interpersonal interaction. Our teachers foster cognitive and emotional development for babies by holding them, singing to them and rocking them throughout the day. These early interactions with the caregiver builds a sense of security so the baby feels confident about exploring the world through: Language (babbling), Gross and fine motor skills (holding a bottle independently and walking), Tummy time, Reading time, Spanish numbers and alphabet, and Basic sign language.
Parents are a child's first teacher, and our staff will work closely with you to make this transition—for both baby and parents—a smooth one. Combining all this while abiding to the state's required teacher-to-child ratios yield the kind of infant child care environment where children learn best and flourish.
