Flexible Arrangements

Because we have extended hours, we are able to accept full-time, part-time and varied schedules. Cots, clean sheets and blankets are provided each evening at 9:00 p.m. as the children await your arrival. For safety, the center is locked at all times. We welcome family and friends with the proper identification. No child is permitted to leave the Center without parental consent and a photo ID. Cameras, with both audio and video, may be recording. Staff are available to discuss your child's progress and behavior, upon request.  

Infant Program 6 Weeks - 18 Months

Day and Evening Care 

Our new infant rooms create the perfect home away from for your baby. Our infant room is divided into two separate areas. Newborns have their own special area, keeping them warm, cozy and safe. 

All babies have the everyday security of their own crib, fresh sheets and blankets provided by the Center. Once enrolled, they are assigned their individual caretaker, giving them a chance to bond with our staff. Sleeping infants are constantly monitored. Cribs are used only for sleeping.

The ratio of staff to infants is carefully monitored to stay below the State minimum. Diapers are changed every 2 hours, more often if needed, and feedings are on demand, keeping your baby happy and comfortable. Babies are cuddled and rocked. A cuddled baby is a happy baby!! You will receive a daily written summary of your baby, so you know how much they slept, ate, and when diapers were changed. 

There are lots of opportunities for spontaneous and fun filled learning experiences as your baby grows and develops. Our babies love playing ball, chasing bubbles, dabbling in finger paint (really pudding!), reading stories in a comfy lap, singing songs and moving to the music. When weather permits they enjoy the fresh air and sunshine in a big, 6 seat stroller. 

Be sure to stop in and visit - you will be impressed!  

Toddler Program 8 months - 3 years

Day and Evening Care 

Terrific toddlers!! Active, busy, curious and very independent! 
Our toddler program is divided into two classrooms, separated by age and ability. This makes it much easier to meet their rapidly changing needs. As your child begins in the toddler room they will enjoy many exciting activities. They love reading stories, singing songs, and moving to the music. 

There is a lot of messy play - painting, sand and water play, both indoors and out when weather permits. They begin relating to their world, playing "Mommy" and "Daddy" and taking care of their "babies", working puzzles, building with big blocks, and scribbling pictures for your refrigerator. 

Toddlers are active, so they are given times to play on the big, soft mat and share an indoor climber. There are lots of room for running, tumbling, dancing and games. When weather permits they enjoy our playground, complete with a play set.  They love the big, yellow slide!

Their schedules include lots of busy time but also allow time for quiet activities. Naptime is from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. each afternoon. Lesson plans are posted outside each classroom so you can see what the children are learning. When ready, we will work with you to encourage potty training. We will follow your lead in this big step towards growing up.

Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten: Ages 3-5 

Now that your child is in preschool, the classes will be more structured. The preschoolers are 3 year olds and the pre-kindergarten children are 4 and getting ready for the world of school. A complete curriculum covers listening and language skills, pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-math activities, introduction to the basics of science, development of motor skills - large and small, thinking skills, and creativity in arts and crafts. Lesson plans are posted outside each classroom and parents are encouraged to reinforce these skills at home. 

Children ages 3 and 4 learn as they play. There are daily opportunities for working with paints, crayons, puzzles, blocks and other materials. The children enjoy reading books, telling stories, getting lost in the world of "make-believe". They also discover the world of science with classroom pets, learning about all living things, discovering the natural world around them. Our playground allows time for running, playing ball and enjoying our climbing equipment. 

Social skills are also developing at this time; children are learning to listen, follow directions, share, take turns and solve problems with their friends. At the end of their prekindergarten year, you and your child will experience their first graduation, complete with diploma!! Parents and guests are invited to attend.  

School Age Program: Kindergarten-10 Years

Before and after school care is provided during the school year. Full day care is available on school holidays and breaks. Summertime welcomes school aged children on a full time basis. 

The kindergarteners and young school aged children enjoy lots of arts and crafts, board games, tablet time, age appropriate movies and special projects
. Help is provided for homework, if needed during the school year and there is always time set aside for reading.

Afternoon snacks are planned when the when the children come from school; after all, they are starving! Cots or camping out on the floor with blankets is always an option for the children that still need that afternoon rest time.
