Children are divided into four classrooms based on their age. Each classroom has specific milestones they target. Educational standards are based on PA standards, and are met through daily activities on the weekly lesson plans.
Our infant room is for newborns to one year old. We have one staff member for every four children. Goals for this age group are: mostly drinking from a sippy cup, pacifier only during nap time, walking, and eating table food. Throughout the day there is directive play, stimulation play, music, and play time. This allows your child to be exposed to different noises, colors, toys, and more.
Young Toddler Room
The young toddler room is ages 1 to 2 years old. In compliance with regulations, we have one staff member for every five children. Goals for this age group include: drink out of a cup, self-feeding, recognize several colors, count to 3, begin putting on shoes/socks, and transitioning from crib to a mat for nap.
