All schedules are adaptive to work with each individual child’s developmental needs and/or recommendations of his/her individualized learning plan.  For example, if it is recommended that a child be allowed to stand during Circle Time this is allowed; Or if a child has fine motor delays the teacher will guide the child toward those activities which will develop fine motor capabilities.

Curriculum

CURRICULUM

2's

This loosely structured program gives children the freedom and opportunity to interact with their peers.  Children explore their natural world through activities which stimulate their cognitive and emotional growth.

Morning classes begin at 9:00 am.  We provide a mid-morning snack.  Two-year-old classes conclude at 11:30 am.  Three-year-old and Pre-Kindergarten classes conclude at 12:30 pm. following lunch.  Children bring their lunch from home and we provide organic milk.  All programs follow a traditional school year (Sept-May).  Your child must be the age of the program by September 1st of that school year.
