The Cricket classroom holds our youngest students! The classroom is structured so that if the babies are not sleeping or eating, they are free to explore! Tummy and floor time is definitely encouraged in the Crickets’ room so that each child can develop strong muscles and motor skills to sit, stand and walk! Our infants practice "on demand" schedules. If they are hungry, the eat, if they are tired, they sleep, if they are ready to play, they play.
The Ladybug room is our waddler/toddler classroom! Within this classroom, teachers assist with language development and encourage free play.

These students participate in a variety of large-motor, small-motor, and sensory activities to help nurture all their developing skills.
In the Honeybee classroom, children learn and explore through a variety of age and developmentally appropriate hands-on activities to encourage development.

These students do a variety of arts and crafts to develop small motor skills, and participate in a weekly dance class and take nature walks to nurture their large motor development.
In this preschool class, teachers will begin to guide students to develop complex skills such as hold scissors, use writing utensils, and complete/engage in difficult puzzles and games.
