We believe that a child’s first teacher is their family. That is why we value families as partners in the growth and development of children in our programs!
Our centers offer a safe and inviting environment designed to meet the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical developmental needs of the age group served. We believe in an adaptive curriculum that modifies lessons to fit the learner, while still meeting NH Early Learning Guidelines.
Visual, auditory, and tactile experiences allow infants to make sense of the world around them. We provide opportunities for infants to actively use their senses as they explore their world through ‘sensory play’. This leads to a child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks and supports cognitive growth, language development, gross motor skills, social interaction, and problem solving skills.
At this time in a child’s life it is key to work on social and emotional wellbeing. Toddlers learn through play how to understand what a friend is, how to play with friends, and how to express emotions in healthy ways. They learn self-control and self-regulation. Self-esteem, life skills, concentration skills, and social skills are continuing to develop at a rapid rate, and we are responsive to the individual needs of each child we care for. We also begin to learn important early cognitive skills, such as colors and shapes.
Preschool and Pre-K
Play is crucial for all areas of development at this age. We believe in an interest-driven curriculum meaning that teachers observe the children’s group and individual interests then change the environment by introducing new materials and scaffold learning according to the group and/or individual goals. We continue to help children learn about the social skills needed to make and be a friend. We learn about emotions- how to recognize them, label them, understand and regulate them. We work with families to teach child self-help skills and independence, and what it means to take care of ourselves. We learn cognitive skills involving letters and numbers, phonics, counting and more through a creative, hands on approach.
