Our early learning center is open from 6 a.m.–6 p.m., Monday through Friday, year-round (closed major holidays).
We begin part-day KPrep at age 3. Children must be age 3 by September 1st, and all students must be completely potty trained.
Our lead teachers are encouraged to have at least an AA degree. All teachers are required to have 10 hours per year of ongoing education.
We have all-day (child care) classes for children who are 6 weeks old through children who are 6 years old.
The children have an opportunity to participate in outdoor, circle time, snack time, and free choice activities.
In the full-day program, we provide morning and afternoon snacks, and lunch.
In the part-day program, the children take turns bringing a healthy snack on their special helper day.
Young learners in our early learning programs are prepared for kindergarten and school success through our age-appropriate focus on personal/social, intellectual, physical and spiritual development.
Infants and toddlers are supported and encouraged by early learning professionals to discover and achieve developmental milestones in a safe, compassionate environment.
For our KPrep students (ages 3–5), the "Creative Curriculum" addresses different learning styles through a multi-sensory approach. The curriculum utilizes engaging lessons that invite active, hands-on participation in the areas of reading and writing, language and literacy, and numbers and math. Science, art, and music round out the core curriculum.
We ask the parents to keep the children home if they have a fever or are vomiting. If a child has strep throat or pink eye, the child must be on medication for at least twenty-four hours before returning to school. Other diseases may have longer at-home times. Please refer to the Early Learning Health and Safety section in our Parent Handbook for more details.
We give progress reports twice a year. Parents are invited to meet with the teachers at this time, but a parent may request a conference with a teacher, or the director, at any time.
Communication to parents comes through class newsletters, email, teacher communication, signs, phone calls, letters, and social media.
Our staff members are trained each year in CPR and first aid. And they are trained to call 9-1-1 in a true medical or security emergency.
