Our infants program is created to care for infants ranging in age from 6 weeks to 15 months. Our goal is to partner with parents as we work towards establishing a routine, developing motor abilities and learning early social skills. We also work on learning to navigate fun new eating habits such as pureed and finger foods.
Infants will enjoy walks with the help of a 6 seater buggy stroller and plenty of outside time, weather permitting!
Our Toddlers classrooms are designed for children ages 15 months to 2 years of age. Teachers will support children as they discover first friends, language bursts, and messy art projects. So much happens in the span between 15 and 24 months and we're here to help you guide your children as they begin to make sense of the world around them.
Our Music Teacher will be joining us bi-weekly!
Our Twos classroom grows with children from 2 to 3 years of age. Children are encouraged to explore their independence with teacher support as they begin to develop self-help skills such as potty training and dressing. The children are provided with more challenging activities that encourage them to become inquisitive investigators.
This program is geared towards children between 3 and 4 years of age. Learning is in full bloom as we work towards potty training, circle time and more structured learning activities. Motor abilities are becoming more refined every day and are encouraged! We enjoy as much outdoor time as possible and as Mother Nature permits.
Our preschoolers enjoy yoga on a bi-weekly basis!
The K-Prep program is for our 4 and 5 year old children. Our teachers help prepare the children for kindergarten through the project/emergent approach. Our K-Prep teachers have taken the MELDS (Maine Early Guideline and Development Standard) training and really work hard to maintain a balance between play based learning and readiness activities. Fostering a safe place for creativity, learning, and fun is so important to us.
K-Prep Outdoor Classroom
The Outdoor Classroom
Incorporating outdoor classroom time into weekly schedules in both preschool and school aged programs has grown in popularity over the last decade. Studies show that spending time in nature helps children become more attentive and focused once they return indoors. The addition of lose, recycled parts to our outdoor classrooms encourages a very specific skill: socialization. Many kindergarten teachers have observed this to be lacking over the years. The children will be encouraged to explore, be created and cooperate together which in turn helps them build confidence and their social skills. It's important that children learn to be both a leader and listener while also getting the opportunity and freedom to guide their own learning experiences.
