0-3 Infant Toddler
Gentle & Loving Care for Little Ones
We provide gentle and loving care to little ones (0 to 3 years old) in one of three carefully-arranged rooms: the infant room, the tweenie room, and the toddler room.
We follow a primary care model, whereby each caregiver builds a relationship with a child and family, and this caregiver is then responsible for that child’s care and well-being throughout the day. In this way, the child’s trust in those around him/her is nurtured, and the child is more secure as he/she explores the world.
Each room is designed to meet the unique needs and interests of infants and toddlers, and is equipped with an area for playing and exploring, sleeping, eating, diapering and/or toileting. You’ll find an assortment of beautiful and interesting play materials for your little one to explore, in a space that is clean and cozy, bathed in natural light, and filled with age-appropriate furnishings.
Preschooler 3-5 years
A Natural Environment for Play & Learning
The preschooler program (for children 3 to 5 years old), located in our beautiful classroom on Nagle Street, offers a combination of nurturing care and holistic education that is based on the children’s unique needs and interests.
Staff strive to create an environment that envelops the children with softness, by incorporating materials that calm and comfort the children, and by using an approach to guidance that is gentle and kind.
Staff also aim to prepare and facilitate a program that is both interesting and enjoyable. Using nature as inspiration, they integrate natural materials throughout the curriculum, including ample time for outside play. The children’s learning is also documented, so that children, educators, and families can appreciate the children’s thinking and feeling, and so they can add information and materials to best support their learning.
