Our teachers are collaborators in the environment. As collaborators they support the child’s natural development by encouraging independence in a natural and gentle way as toddlers begin to form their character, self esteem, social skills, and learning process. Our rooms hold shelves with carefully chosen activities that will provoke exploration of children’s ideas and concepts. Shelves are rich with materials to encourage language development, art, fine motor, and imaginative play. Materials will change as the children’s questions and inquiries lead to new discoveries. The playground features beautiful materials and natural exploration. The grounds also feature garden boxes and plenty of time to cultivate their classroom garden. The children also learn about weather, seasons, plants, animals, and insects from their organic garden. The classroom adventures out on supervised nature walks to cultivate their innate curiosity of the outdoors. 2 – 3 Years Old 5 Day Program: 8:30am-3pm* 3 Day Program: 8:30am-12pm 2 Day Program: 8:30am-12pm *The exploration period will end at 12pm and parents are welcome to pick up their children at that time.
