Saplings & Birch
Sapling (0-12M) & Birch (10-16M) are our Infant Classrooms.
We understand that healthy development and learning begins at birth. Our infant program is designed to offer a secure place with knowledgeable teachers who honor your family’s routine, and know every day that they’re not caring for any child, but the most important child — yours. You want to know your child is safe and well cared for, which is why we strive to build a strong partnership with the families in our programs. We provide a stimulating environment to learn and grow, supporting the mastery of skills at each stage of your baby’s development.
Sycamore, Willow, & Hickory
Sycamore (16-20M) & Willow (20-30M), & Hickory (30-36M) are our Toddler Classrooms.
When your toddler’s in the right place, you just know. Our program is designed to give you that feeling, a safe place for your newly independent child to test out and learn new skills, wonder about everything, and discover how to make friends. It’s all alongside teachers who know that children learn best through play and open exploration of their surroundings. Additionally, we support families in their roles as parents and as their child’s first teacher by partnering in setting goals and routines to support the development of the individual child.
Evergreen, Maple, & Aspen
Evergreen (3Y) & Maple (3-5Y), & Aspen (3-5Y) are our Preschool Classrooms.
Many children benefit from their participation in our preschool program. The program is designed for children ages three to five years old. We have three preschool rooms, one for our younger three year olds and two multi-age classroom for 3-5 year-olds. All utilize the Creative Curriculum, a play-based curriculum that centers on learning through play. We use an emergent learning model and teachers design curriculum based on the interests of the children. We have a strong emphasis on social-emotional development to support the development of kindergarten readiness skills. We collaborate with the Taconic & Green Early Education Department to provide services for children with specialized learning needs. We aim to give children a solid foundation for future success by inspiring their curiosity and instilling a love for learning. Our goal is to provide our preschoolers with the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive skills that will help them to thrive in elementary school and beyond.
