Toddler: (16 months to 36 months) Toddlers are cared for in a stimulating classroom with age-appropriate equipment. Program plans include activities such as:
- Potty teaching
- Circle Time
- Exploration and Discovery
- Encouraging Large Muscle Coordination
The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 7.
Preschool: (3, 4, and 5 year olds) Our preschool program implements Creative Curriculum while working together with District Kindergarten teachers and ECFE staff to prepare your child for Kindergarten. Our daily schedule includes the following activities:
- Kindergarten Readiness Skills
- Circle Time (Calendar, weather, classroom rules)
- Music, Art and Dramatic Play
- Literacy Activities
- Math, Science & Construction
- Fine Motor Development
- Second Step (bullying prevention curriculum)
- Community Exploration
- Large Muscle Activities
The classrooms are arranged into learning centers which provide the children with many self-directed learning opportunities as well as small group opportunities with peers and teachers.
The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 10.
We also partner with the Foster Grandparent program. Our foster grandma comes in daily to read, play, and interact with our children.
There is also the Intern program for college students to earn credit toward graduation by volunteering in our center. This also lowers the ratio of children per adult and provides extra help when needed.
