​Welcome to the Beginner's Department!!!  We have three classrooms in this department divided out by ages;  infants, toddlers & two year olds.  

The infant age group is 6 weeks to 15 months.  Here in the Infant room, we strive to provide your baby with a safe and nuturing learning environment.   Our spacious room includes, soft reading area, dramatic play area, fine motor & gross motor areas.  We do hand and foot art projects which make for adorable keepsakes.  Our routines are based on each child's individual needs.  Our teachers enjoy playing, reading, singing, holding and loving your little one's while you are away.

The Toddler age group is 15 months to 24 months.  In our Toddler Room, we strive to make every opportunity a learning moment.  Since toddlers love to explore and learn through play, we provide them with the enviroment to do so.  We offer a healthy balance of  hands on activities, dress-up for dramatic play, quiet reading space and a fantastic gross motor area to help promote the child's  mind and body development.

In our two year old classroom, we care for children between the ages of 24 months through 36 months.  Engaging in the concept of "learning through play", we have a fun filled routine of art, gross motor with music and motion and plenty of indoor/outdoor activitites.  Our classroom also seeks to build the framework for independence, self reliance through potty training, personal care routines, social/emotional skills with lots of smiles and encouragement.
