About the program:
"We provide a stimulating, individualized curriculum to encourage curiosity and to enhance a love of learning in children. Our professional staff guide children's learning through a child-centered curriculum in which there is a balance between child-initiated and teacher-initiated activities. The curriculum is developed by providing a safe environment, well-equipped activity areas, and daily routines that are sensitive to the interests and developmental levels of very young children."

An educational program. "We facilitate the children's learning through the various activities planned throughout the day. Children are encouraged to pursue their own interests by making choices from a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and are allowed to progress at their own pace. The activities encourage children to explore, interact, and express themselves as they are introduced to concepts in math, science, technology, music, movement, social studies, language, creative arts, health, and nutrition." The curriculum includes anti-bias techniques and materials designed to help children learn to value and to comfortably interact in an inclusive and intergenerational environment, discouraging discrimination and stereotyping.
Children participate in the daily preparation and serving of lunches and/or snacks, and there is a rest period after lunch in the Full Day Program.
