Red Room - 6 weeks to 18 months - We know how difficult it is to go back to work after having a baby. We want every parent to feel comfortable knowing that their child is being cared for by experienced, nurturing caregivers who have a passion for caring for babies. Our staff is experienced in aiding the social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development of each child.  We are extremely proud of our low caregiver to child ratio - 1 caregiver for only two babies.  
Through a daily log, you will be kept informed of diaper changes, feedings and naps, as well as the various other activities of your child’s day.  You will also be advised of your child’s accomplishments and developmental milestones throughout the year.  Your child will thrive in this loving envrionment.


Orange Room -18 Months to approximately 2 Years-  Our teachers will guide your toddler through his or her first learning experiences in a classroom setting.  The class is limited to no more than six students to enable each child to receive the one-on-one attention necessary to help them successfully reach their milestones.

To aid your child’s learning and development, our classroom is overflowing with manipulatives, learning materials and toys which are appropriate for each stage of development. He or she will also learn to develop friendships with classmates and see that great things cam be achieved through sharing and cooperation.  Daily crafts and activities keep our youngest learners engaged.  They will learn all the self-help skills they need to join our Yellow Room and beyond.


Yellow Room- Approximately 2 to 3 Years- Daily routines are an important part of our curriculum. We begin each day with Circle Time. During this time, the children will focus on the calendar, the weather, colors, and shapes.  They will also listen to and discuss stories and will complete activities pertaining to the "Letter of The Week." Children will begin to become more independent as they learn to use words to express themselves.


Dancing, singing and art are an important part of our day.  The children also enjoy playing on our playground.  Your child will learn while having fun!

  Is your child ready for Kindergarten?

Green Room- Approximately 3 to 4 Years- In the Green Room, our teachers will continue to encourage independence.   Students will build independence through play and classroom routines. We utilize the "Creative Curriculum" as well as "Letter People" to educate your child in a fun and creative way.  Students will begin to explore pre-math and pre-literacy skills, make science discoveries, and will build on their fine and gross motor skills.  Children in the Green Room will continue to build their communication and self-help skills.  Our full day program also includes Spanish and Art.



Blue Room - Approximately 4 to 5 Years

In the Pre-K program, children will recognize the links between spoken and written words. Reading readiness is a key component of our curriculum. At the completion of this program, our students are able to read words from the Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Word list and books from the First Little Readers series.  They are well-prepared for the challenges of Kindergarten.  Our students will learn more advanced math concepts, continue to make discoveries in science, learn about the world around them, and expand their Spanish vocabulary. As our students reach their developmental milestones, we strive to help them achieve a higher level of thinking that will challenge them, build self confidence and instill a love of learning.
