Educational Curriculum

Toddler Program (Ages 2-3)

Our toddlers are offered a variety of opportunities to explore their world through play. Gross motor skills and social skills are developed through both structured and unstructured play. Their days are filled with music, art, dance, story times and more. Toddlers will be assessed as needed for proper milestone, mental and physical development.

Preschool (Ages 4-5)

Although it may seem like fun and games to preschoolers, the curriculum we follow is packed with various of educational elements. Games and activities abound that teach pre-reading skills like phonic awareness and letter and sound recognition, early pre-writing skills, early basic math concepts and hands on science exploration. Preschoolers will be assessed as needed for proper milestone, mental and physical development.

Kindergarten (Ages 5-6)

Mirroring the state curriculum standards of Ohio, the kindergarteners focus on reading, early writing and basic math. Science, social studies, art, music, and physical education round out the learning program. They will be assessed frequently to ensure they are fully prepared for kindergarten.

Elementary/After School (Ages 5-12)

School age children are given a quiet environment for homework and projects, are allowed supervised access to computers programs and limited age appropriate Internet usage and homework tutoring/assistance as needed. Also available are crafts, games, snacks and physical activities.

We currently use Gee Whiz\ to meet the requirements for Ohio's Step Up To Quality Program. We also supplement several other curriculums and educational resources to ensure that we offer a whole round learning program that will meet the needs of all the children entrusted within our program.

A small world

Jesus loves the little children

If all the raindrops were

itsy bitsy spider

Mary had a little lamb

Old MacDonald's farm

A spoonful of sugar

The airplane song
