OUR PROGRAMS

The Bulldogs (6 Weeks - 12 Months Old)

In The Bulldog's Room, we teach ages 6 weeks to 12 months old. Ms. Jennifer is the lead teacher and has been with us for 29 years. We know that placing your infant in child care can be stressful on you and that’s why we strive to offer a loving, safe and stimulating environment that fosters the natural development process. Throughout the year we will begin to introduce skills to help your child hold his/her own bottle, feed themselves finger foods, sit in upright position, and communicate through sign language. The Bulldog's daily schedule includes tummy time/physical education, outside play, group time, and music and movement. We are open to the use of cloth diapers and environmentally safe products. Ms. Jennifer sends home a "My Day" note that tells you when your child ate, napped and the times that they were changed. 

The Butterflies (12-20 Months Old)
 

In The Butterflies' Room, we teach children ages 12-20 months old. The lead teacher is Mrs. Sharrise who has been with us for 10 years and has been in the teaching profession for over 25 years. The Butterflies' daily schedule includes group time, outside play, arts and crafts, musical and physical education. We teach basic colors and shapes, numbers 1-10, and days of the week. Sign language is used for a way of communication as our students learn how to talk. We incorporate activities that help support social and emotional development. Mrs. Sharrise sends home a "My Day" note that tells you how your child's overall day was, what they ate, when they were changed and how long they took a nap.

During group time, they teach basic colors and shapes, numbers 1-15, days of the week, months of the year, daily and seasonal weather. As the students are still developing their language skills, we continue to use sign language as a way of commuincation. Mrs. Victoria sends home a "My Day" note that tells you how your child's overall day was, what they ate, when they napped, and when they were changed/ went to the bathroom. As your child forms more independence, we start the potty training process! 

Throughout our school we follow The Pinnacle Curriculum! We provide monthly classroom newsletters and a progress report three times a year!

We have the app Ticks&Tots where we can send daily pictures to parents, request meetings, take payments, update info, and more.
