Our philosophy is simple: Meet children where they are, help them get to where they need to go and provide children with lots of individualized guidance and support along the way. We strive to make each child’s experience interesting and meaningful. It is our aim to provide a rich and developmentally appropriate experience that will foster a lifelong love of books and learning. Ultimately, it is our mission to prepare each child well for the years ahead.
Children’s brains develop rapidly in the first five years of life. The “wiring” that occurs at this time impacts individuals the rest of their lives, according to research (Google brain development and early learning for countless articles on this topic). Thus, we believe in using our students’ time wisely.
We follow a balanced approach when teaching literacy to our youngest children. Teachers model good reading practices and immerse children in literacy-related activities while in circle time, through reading aloud and teaching of mini-lessons. We use books, puppets, games, role-playing, toys, signs and anything with pictures or words on them to help in this endeavor. Learn more about our Infant, Toddler and 2-Year Old programs.
