  • The Infant/Toddler classroom includes children between the ages of six weeks and two years. Individual plans are devised for each child in cooperation with the child’s parent. A full-time lead teacher and teacher’s aide provide consistency of care through the first two years of life.
  • The Preschool I classroom is comprised of older toddlers (24 months-three years). Building social skills, self-help skills, and toilet-training are just a few of the goals the curriculum addresses.
  • The Preschool II classroom includes children from three (and potty-trained) to five years old. The curriculum addresses continuing socialization and self-help skills, with added emphasis on preschool readiness skills.
