Programing

We have a program centered on meeting the needs of children at various ages and developmental levels. The daily schedule is built on play-based learning which includes a balance of structured and unstructured activities. Our daily routine includes active and quiet free-play activities, staff directed activities, snacks, lunch, hygiene and clean up times.

All staff participate in planning the program and staff meetings are held regularly to formulate and develop program ideas. The program is evaluated on an ongoing basis as the children’s needs change.

Our school age program gives children the opportunity to develop their social skills while taking part in activities which they enjoy outside of their regular school day. We encourage the children’s participation in developing their daily program.

We strive to have each day offer the children a variety of choices & activities that are stimulating as well as fun.
