Infants (6 weeks-12 months)
Our curriculum provides stimulation through a variety of visual, aural and personal connections. Our infants are grouped by age and developmental stages. Teachers are not only warm and responsive, but educated in working specifically with infants. Daily reports are sent through the Procare app for each child so that you know what kind of day your baby is having. We know that a safe, loving and clean enviroment is important to parents. That is exactly what you will find at Lollipop.
Toddlers (12 months-23 months)
Art, music, books, outdoor playtime fill the day of our Toddlers. This age is curious and exploratory by nature. We begin teaching self-help skills like hand washing, using the potty and dressing themselves at this stage of development. Toddlers enjoy thier own playground designed specifically for them. Here they can enjoy riding toys, water play, rolling balls, watching squirrels jump from tree to tree and listening to the birds sing.
This age group has learning centers that consist of art, science, library, blocks, puzzles, music and dramatic play. Twos explore their world through play, social interaction and teacher directed activities. A playground specifically for twos is just outside their classroom door. This is the perfect place for twos to burn up their seemingly never ending energy. Water play, climbing toys, riding toys and nature are all enjoyed here.
This age is the beginning of a special stage in your child's life. They are learning more about independence and self-confidence. Three year old's are developing a strong sense of themselves and the world around them. We help nurture this process through 4 areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language. As stated in the Creative Curriculum (TM), "through the activities we plan and the way we organize the classroom, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with the children, we seek to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school.
Our transitional Kindergarten program prepares your child for "big school". Literacy is essential for success in school and life. Skills such as listening and speaking, early reading, early writing and math are all part of the curriculum. While every child learns at their own pace, the exposure to early literacy skills lays the foundation for life long learning.
