Babies/Young Toddler Program (6 w. to 23 m.)
For our youngest children in care we focus on making the child feel as comfortable as possible. We want our setting to feel like “a home away from home.” The daily schedule is dependent on each babies individual needs for nap, meals and play. We like to have a partnership with parents to ensure that the babies are getting the best care possible. We maintain a small staff to child ratio of 1:4. This small group size can ensure that the staff is actively engaging with your child throughout the day and create the crucial bonding between babies and staff.
Toddler Program (2 & 3 year olds)
At this age toddlers are continuously exploring their world and developing their ideas. Children this age have very individualized needs. We encourage appropriate social play, self-help skills and flexible learning. The classroom is set up with several different areas to promote exploration and play. The toddlers follow a daily schedule that is similar to the preschool age children but with more flexibility.
Preschool Program (3.5 to 5 year olds)
At this age the children are becoming more independent and are gaining a desire for learning. The teacher to child ratio is 1:10. The focus in this room is more on getting kindergarten ready, however the children have plenty of time to play, explore and socialize throughout the day. Our curriculum is packed with educational elements hidden in daily songs, games and science activities.
FunShine Express Curriculum
Curriculum is designed for children ages three to five years old, which focuses on building enthusiasm for learning and enhances school readiness skills. We have customized the curriculum to fit the needs of our students.
Large cafeteria for gym use on days were the weather may be a little too cold to go outside.
Over 10,000 square feet of fenced outside play area. The children enjoy it so much that we take the children outside twice daily. We have 6 swings, a climbing dome, covered sand pit, rock pit and huge play structure. In the spring and summer the child help with garden activities. There is four large garden beds and plenty of room to grow our own fruits and vegetables.
We have a wonderful garden area right outside the classroom doors. We will be spending a lot of time in the spring and summer doing class projects in this beautiful area.
