We believe that every child is unique and will grow at his or her own pace. Our teachers spend time nurturing children’s strengths and encouraging them to reach new heights.
Our curriculum for infants is based on consistent routines and interactions to caregivers focusing on the four developmental domains (physical, emotional, social and cognitive/language) and promptly attending their needs in a safe and secure environment. For that reason, in the infant room, the ratio is 8 children to 3 teachers. We believe that at this stage, babies must have their first needs promptly attended in order to thrive and develop a trusting bond with our team.
Toddlers’ imagination and curiosity give them great energy and creative potential. They need opportunities to develop and express these capacities. They also rely on adults to help them deal with their intense feelings and rapid fluctuations in mood. Our staff is prepared to guide children through this magical period of life. With blocks, flannel boards, discovery center, dramatic play, hands on experiences and much more, we play and learn together in a stimulating and loving environment. Our goal is to support your child’s needs and give them the tools to succeed.
Children at this age are learning many new skills and stretching their cognitive abilities. The preschool age is a time for rapidly growing independence. At A Place Like Home we will foster it as well as life skills such as tying their own shoes, feeding and dressing themselves and cleaning up. We also will make sure their fine and motor skills are properly developed as well as concepts of numbers, colors and letters. Mastering those new concepts, self-care skills and life skills will get them ready to a very and new exciting time in their lives: School!
