Our Program

Our teaching style and philosophy align closely with the Reggio Emilia approach. We support child-directed learning through nature, music, art and hands-on experiences. Our program includes both structured activities and free play.  Engaging concepts are presented during a relaxed lesson time and reinforced through play and every day activities.   We understand that learning starts at birth.  We embrace this fact by including all of the children–babies and “big kids” alike–in classes and activities.  Our small group size offers lots of individual attention. Each child is exposed to age appropriate toys, books and activities.
We spend as much time as possible enjoying the great outdoors.  Whether it’s playing on our playground, taking a walk, exploring in the woods, enjoying picnics in the summer and sledding in the winter; if the sun is out we are too!
We periodically take fun, educational field trips to museums, farms and more.  We also enjoy frequent visits to the library.  In addition to these exciting adventures, we offer a weekly music class with our experienced music and piano teacher, Miss Katey.   (For more information, click on the “musical Mondays” tab.)  Private piano lessons are also available at a minimal additional charge.
