Infants

Loving care in a playful environment

Infants build trust through nurturing relationships with caring teachers. Their environment allows them to build their muscles and coordination while moving around freely in a safe space. Infants can explore objects and begin to make sense of their world. Teachers interact with your child and offer them enjoyable experiences that lay the foundation for learning.

Toddlers

Learning to socialize

Teachers create strong, positive bonds with your child to help them feel secure and important, allowing them to explore, problem-solve, and test ideas through play. Teachers help toddlers develop and learn by asking questions to help them think more deeply about what they’re doing. They will encourage your child to keep trying when they face a challenge.

Preschool 1

Experiencing independence

Teachers support your child as they continue to develop physically, socially, emotionally, verbally and cognitively. Your child will begin to recognize and manage their own feelings and behavior as teachers help them build effective communication skills through listening, talking, problem-solving, reading and writing, and play.

Pre-k

Getting ready for Kindergarten

As your child is getting ready to transition into Kindergarten they will explore a more complex curriculum allowing them to inquire and investigate. Further development of your child’s cognitive skills will allow them to think more complexly and make decisions and problem solve.

 

 
 
As a coop, not only did we bond with the other parents and children, we learned compassionate parenting skills direct from the teachers.
