Educational Curriculum:

Our curriculum is primarily based on the Creative Curriculum.  Our goal is to provide a healthy, loving and educational environment for children of all ethnic backgrounds.  We will endeavor to give each child the opportunity to express himself/herself creatively and to develop verbal skills, physical abilities and the attributes of sharing and cooperation.  These skills are developed through the following learning centers/activities:  Art, Language, Math, Writing, Housekeeping, Playground, Blocks, Science, Movement, Sand/Water Play, Music, and Etc.  These skills will not only foster personal independence, but also social responsibility.

Eligibility and Acceptance Requirements:

Children 4 weeks – 5 years of age are eligible for enrollment.  Our infant/toddler room accepts children ages 4 weeks to 2 years that are not potty trained.  We also provide a Pre-K room that offers care for children ages 2 to 5 years of age and are potty trained.  When our center is at full capacity, we maintain a waiting list for enrollment.  Children are accepted in our center through Private Pay, County Department of Social Services, and Community College Child Care Scholarships.
