Child Care

Our Child Care programs are segmented by age, with each group having their own classroom specifically tailored for their age. Benefits of this approach include age-appropriate learning techniques and tools, a comfort level for your child being around children their same age, and a reduction in varying levels of social and academic development within a classroom. 

The moving of children into new classrooms occurs a couple of times through the year, and is based on age, development, and available space within classrooms. Occasionally, a child may be ready to move into a new classroom early, or may not quite be ready to make a change. In both cases, the Child Care Director and teachers will discuss with you what is best for your child and recommend placement. 

Two-Year Old Program


Grasshopper and Firefly Classrooms


Learning through play is the goal in the two-year old classroom! Days are filled with music, art, stories and games, along with free play, indoors and out. Toilet training is facilitated with easily accessible tiny toilets, and self-help skills are encouraged with items like sinks scaled to child size. In these classrooms, a large focus is placed on friendships and social skills. Children start to become more aware of what is "theirs" and their personal space. Our teachers guide children through sharing and personal space, and friendships truly begin to blossom at this age. Often, you will find the children hugging each other and comforting when a friend is sad.
