The infant room is an opportunity for children aged 3months to 18 months of age to experience some time together in an environment that is especially suited for the child with age-appropriate activities.
The infant program serves children from the age of eight weeks until the age of 18 months. The program is designed to promote feelings of belonging and the loving care which help infants to grow and develop to their full potential. Children eat, sleep, and play according to his or her own schedule.
Every infant is an individual with unique abilities, desires and emotions. Our program is designed to meet the individual needs of each child and to provide them with educational experiences. In our infant room, we provide a creative and stimulating program which encourages visual, language,
gross motor and small motor experiences to enhance learning through their own natural curiosity.
We firmly believe in the need for open and thorough communication between teachers and each family to provide loving care for each child and confidence for each parent.
TODDLER GROUP 1 n 2(18 months through 3 years)
This program allows children between the ages of 18months through 3 years of age to gain skills in independence, concentration, and being part of a community. The emphasis during the toddler years is on building self-confidence and fostering the natural curiosity that toddlers possess.
Deep respect for each child ensures that your toddler will truly love his or her school environment and, from that, develop a long lasting love for learning.
Prechool 1 n 2(3 years through 5 years)
Our preschool program prepares children socially and academically, as well as, supports and encourages the development of independence, responsibility, and confidence, all of which are essential for the child's ongoing success in pre-school. Our educational program focuses on each child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development by offering concrete, hands-on activities for the child to explore. The preschool curriculum is designed to actively engage each child in developmentally age appropriate activities exploring the content areas of Literacy, Communication & Language, Numeracy, Knowledge Of The World, Personal, Social & Emotional development, Creative Arts and Physical development.
Our skilled teachers prepare curriculum that is exciting and challenging, as well as supportive of each child's own learning style.
Children are assessed for class placement into the older classes by chronological ages and in terms of their total development – social, physical and emotional.
Interest level in the activities typical of each group is also taken into consideration, as is the actual availability of an open place at a particular time that matches the enrollment days of the child being moved.
The classroom teacher is also consulted as to the readiness of the child. Parents will be notified and encouraged to set up a transitional conference with the new teacher.
Learning in this group covers 7 curriculum areas:
COMMUNICATION & LANGUAGE
KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD
PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
We strongly encourage all parents interested in our program to come in for an observation. This creates an opportunity to meet some of our highly qualified staff members,
see the classes, and have a tour of our child-centered facility.
Please call the school on 01-2911283 to set up an appointment for an observation.
After the observation, you will be required to bring your child for a 1 day visit which lasts between 3 to 6 hours. This 1 day visit gives our teachers an opportunity to see your child in a classroom situation, observing social skills and group interactions as well as gaining insight into his or her individual interests.
