 Class Placement and Descriptions:

Our infant class serves children beginning at eight weeks old. The teachers strive to meet each child’s individual needs. The babies receive lots of snuggle time and attention! The student to teacher ratio is 4:1.

Our toddler class incorporates more structure. There is a daily classroom routine of play, outside time, songs, art, stories and lunch. In addition to turning one by October 15th, children in this class must be off the bottle and not require a morning nap. The student to teacher ratio is 5:1.

Our two year old class continues to focus on the whole child with a daily routine. Increasing independence, more communication with teachers and peers and potty training are important skills at this age level. The student to teacher ratio is 6:1.

In our three year old class, children need to be potty trained before attending. Children at this age are big talkers and have a longer attention span, therefore activities can be more complex! The student to teacher ratio is 7:1.

Our four year old class continues to be play-based but also incorporates crucial academic skills through the Zoo Phonics and Core Knowledge curricula. Our children also participate in a comprehensive fine motor skills program called Move N’ Write. The children in our program are prepared to move on to Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten. The student to teacher ratio is 8:1.

Our Transitional Kindergarten is for children who have completed the four year old program and miss the cut-off date for Kindergarten or for children who might need an extra year before beginning elementary school.  It expands and extends from the four year old curricula to challenge children in all areas of development. The student to teacher ratio from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. is 8:1.

Extended Care:  We will offer extended care from 8:00-9:00 a.m. and 1:00-3:00 p.m. for all ages. Pricing options for five days are listed with our tuition rates. If you would like to schedule regular care for one to four days a week, please check in the Weekday Office for alternate pricing and availability. We will also offer drop-in care on a first-come, first-serve basis for $10 an hour. During extended care, the children will have quiet time on their mats and may go to sleep, read, or play with quiet toys.

Payments:
