From the Director:

Language Development: Basic language skills are taught through social interaction, reading, speaking, sharing, listening, music, art, freeplay, and role play. Physical Development: All children participate in activites that are designed to develop small and large muscle coordination through the use of manipulative games, indoor and outdoor activities. Social Development: The children will learn to express their feelings and to resolve their conflicts and experience a sense of belonging as a member of a group in socially acceptable ways.
