Tiny Seeds


Tiny Seeds introduces our little 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 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.

Sprouts


Our Sprouts are introduced to cognitive skills and practice making decisions.  Science and discovery activities stimulate curiosity as the children learn valuable lessons about themselves and the world around them.  Art and music activities encourage individual expression.  Lesson plans include music and movement, creative art, story time, and writing.  We will introduce our phonics program designed to familiarize the children with reading, writing and spelling. Theme-related projects introduce them to the seasons of the year.

Sprouts need to be potty trained.

Acorns


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 at a more advanced level.  The children will begin to learn about writing words and forming sentences. In math, they will go beyond just counting and learn to group, graph, and recognize patterns.

Mighty Oaks


Our Mighty Trees 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 practiced daily.  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, magnets and magnifying glasses, 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.

STEAM Extended Day


This program uses the STEAM 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, the children can explore and discover the world around them while learning literacy, problem solving skills, and collaboration techniques.  The children will construct their own learning using critical thinking, creativity and innovation. They will be encouraged to discover, think, and question.
