"Our program allows children to learn and grow at their own pace by providing them with activities that are both interesting and challenging. Each child is very special, with a unique personality and individual needs. We consider the interests of children and design a program that satisfies their natural curiosity and need to learn about their world. Activities are planned to meet the social, cognitive and physical needs of the children in our care. Our curriculum is theme based and allows teachers as well as children to be creative and flexible. We strive to help children become independent and self confident through structured activities and loving interactions with our teachers. Each classroom, with the exception of our infant room, follows a schedule of activities. Time is allowed for independent, free choice work, as well as group activities. We offer a thematic learning program for children 12 months of age through school-age. Themes include topics such as “Favorite Stories and Rhymes,” “Water Fun,” and “Me and My Feelings.” A complete list of themes is available on this Web site. The majority of our field trips take place during the summer. We welcome parents to come join us at local parks, the beach and bowling. We also invite people in our community to share their talents with us. In August we host a reptile show. During our circus theme week a clown comes to entertain us, and the school-age children put on a circus show. Once a week, a musician comes to sing songs and play various instruments. We do not celebrate, within our curriculum, any holidays or religious practices. It is our goal to provide a well-rounded curriculum without focusing on these issues. We provide care for a variety of families, cultures and denominations. Parents are the most important influence in a child's life. The greater a parent's communication with the teachers and involvement in the classroom, the greater will be the child's opportunity to grow and learn, both at home and at school"
