6 weeks to 12 months: Infants feel more secure and develop better when in an environment with routines balanced with individual needs. What we want the teachers to do in this classroom is to get down on the floor, play with and love on these babies.
12 months to 2 years: at this stage children practice what they see and experience. This environment will be structured where they can enjoy imitating and playing, where teachers can assist them through behavior they do not yet understand (sharing, taking turns).
2 years to 3 years: Two year olds have more structure and learn more responsibility such as cleaning up, brushing teeth and dedicated curriculum time. We emphasize that the teachers work with the children individually and give them the love and attention they need, however be balanced with structure and routine.
3 years to 4 years: Three year old children can be extremely quick and smart. During this year our curriculum will focus on preschool topics and getting the children ready for kindergarten.
4 years to 5 years: Children of this age group will learn to work in larger groups. There will be flexibility in the curriculum to focus on what the children are interested in while getting them ready for kindergarten.
School Age: Children of this age group will have an
opportunity to work quietly with a teacher on homework
or other school assignments as needed.
