The Infant room allows for the development of the infants in a nurturing, caring, and educational environment.
The Toddler classroom allows for the development of the young child in a nurturing, caring, and educational environment. Activities in areas such as Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, and Gross Motor Activities help to promote independent self-care, discrimination of the senses, communication, concentration skills,�and opportunities for children to work collectively as a group or independently.
The 3-6 classroom promotes individuality, confidence, responsibility for one's self and fellow peers, respect for the classroom, and a freedom to partake in many different activities as the child develops. The freedom to pursue one's own interests by choosing activities enables the child to exercise some control over his or her life. The classroom covers five main areas which include: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Culture.
