Tiny Seeds introduces our littlest learners to letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Lesson plans include language development, learning the alphabet, recognizing numbers and learning to count. Learning centers use blocks, puzzles, creative art, and books. At this stage, toddlers are becoming more independent and our teachers promote practicing life skills like hand washing, picking up toys and sharing with friends. Tiny Seeds will be introduced to Zoo Phonics, a kinesthetic and multi-sensorial language arts program where children use their eyes, ears, mouths and bodies to learn.
Tiny Seeds do not have to be potty trained. We appreciate if they are, but understand if it is still a work in progress. We will work with you, as a team to help them reach that goal.

With our Acorns, the focus is placed on language arts and math fundamentals to promote excitement about learning new concepts. For these active learners, our lesson plans are filled with activities to help each child grow socially, intellectually and physically. Language development includes story time and puppet play to enrich their imaginations and teach listening and verbal interaction in a group setting. We continue to use our phonics program, Zoo Phonics, at a more advanced level. Science will be weaved into their weekly themes to promote predicting and problem solving skills. In math, they will go beyond just counting and learn to group, graph, and recognize patterns.

Our Mighty Oaks class promotes cooperative play to learn problem solving through lesson plans that teach the children to use independent reasoning and develop manners and social skills. Our teachers introduce the structure of a classroom setting and concentrate on early reading and math skills. Language lessons include story time followed by content questions. Phonics and writing are weaved throughout all theme based learning. Learning Without Tears is used to help build a strong foundation of proper letter formation. In math, adding and subtracting are introduced along with graphing, grouping, sorting and comparisons. In Science and Discovery, they will learn about animals, the earth and outer space, weather, transportation, and the five senses. Social studies teach the children about their community and different cultures. They will daily discuss, negotiate and strategize to create elaborate play scenes, take turns, and work together toward mutual goals.

S.T.E.A.M. Extended Day
Age: 4 and 5 year olds
This program uses the S.T.E.A.M. concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) in all areas of planning. There will be a strong emphasis on the cognitive, physical and social-emotional domains of development. Through project-based, inquiry-driven activities, our learners can explore and discover the world around them while learning literacy, problem solving skills, and collaboration techniques. This educational approach to learning will guide student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end result is students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
