Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our mission is to provide quality, consistent and continuous care for your child through the most important years of their life. We will nourish your bundle of joy into a child full of curiosity, love and compassion. We are passionate about guiding your child to their full potential, while supporting your families ways of doing things. Let’s work together and help your infant/toddler develop appropriately at their own rate, in their own unique way. Nonna’s will provide lots of love, nourishing food, space to explore and lots of fun materials and toys to engage their minds and bodies.

A Typical Day

Your child will develop motor skills, from their head down to their toes, with space to grow and soft places to roll over, push up, scoot and crawl on, and eventually walk through the world in which they live. Your child will deeply connect with their caregivers, peers and others in their community, which will promote trusting relationships and a sense of security. Your child will learn to communicate in an environment full of conversations, storytelling, music and lots of genuine hugs and smiles. In our infant room and activity area, you will find mirrors, pictures of their families, baskets filled with things to stack, dump, throw, read and cuddle with. There are clothes to dress up in and objects to pretend play with. There is a space to move on wheels, jump and swing, draw, paint, and to get wet and sandy. Our caregivers have open arms and wide eyes to watch over your child and provide the attention they need to spread their wings.
