Highly Educated Teachers Guide Your Child With Love
Not One, But Two Awards for Childcare and Preschool Excellence
The center is honored to have the accolades and approval of our community. In 2019, the school was recognized for exceptional care and early education that changes lives. Awards for Best Childcare and Preschool from both the Lakes Region and Tilton promise your child the best experience possible.
A Culture of Gratitude Builds Character and Kindness in Kids
Happiness starts with expressing appreciation for what we have. Children give thanks before every meal so that they practice the life-enhancing art of being grateful many times a day. Teachers model kindness and respect so that your child can reflect these attributes in their own lives as well. The center believes that teaching kindness and compassion within a culture of gratitude builds essential character traits and is the foundation for all future social skills.
Hands-On Learning: The Best of The Creative Curriculum©, Montessori, STEAM, and More
The program draws from several recognized curricula, blending elements of the Creative Curriculum©, Montessori, Early Sprouts Nutrition Garden Program, and STEAM/STEM. Using hands-on, academically-oriented lesson plans, teachers focus on the development of the whole child: mind, body, spirit, and heart. They give your child the tools they need to succeed.
A Nutrition Garden Program Introduces Children To Healthy Eating
Preschool-aged children actively participate in our Early Sprouts Nutrition Garden Program. They learn to grow, harvest, and prepare vegetables, cultivating their zest for healthy eating. This curriculum provides sensory explorations and cooking activities, using our on-site organic garden beds, plus Family Recipe Kits to help families prepare the recipes at home!
Yummy & Nutritious Kid-Friendly Meals Prepared Fresh Daily
The center provides nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks to our students each day, and the menu is updated every month. Children have a wide variety of foods that include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, proteins, and milk. For babies that are just starting on solids, wholesome foods are gently introduced 10-14 times, so that your child will have the chance to make healthy eating habits right from the start.
Building Big Muscles in The Adorable "Little Gym"
Growing bodies need exercise to be able to move well and get stronger. An indoor play area is fully equipped with a “little gym,” complete with a treadmill and exercise bike. The center offers many types of physical exercise and active play, as well as yoga every day. Creating an active routine means your child can get their body moving, burn off extra energy, and benefit from the clear thinking, calm, and focus that exercise brings into their day-to-day.
Getting Fresh Air with Outdoor Play Every Day
Parents Love The Brightwheel™ Communication App for Constant Updates
Parents rave about the Brightwheel™ parent communication app. Use it to stay in touch with our teachers, stay updated on your child’s daily routine and receive videos and pictures to see what a great day your child is having. Brightwheel is also crucial in tracking and communicating your child’s development, so parents and teachers work together to meet a child’s specific needs.
Children Practice Kindness in Action with Community Involvement
Our school partners with the Easter Seals, where people with physical and cognitive disabilities spend time in the classroom, reading and helping with projects. This gives children visibility and exposure to people with different abilities. As part of a culture of gratitude, children participate in three different community projects throughout the year to help those in need. This fosters a sense of community for our kids, as well as the joy of accomplishment and giving.
A Super-Clean And Healthy Environment Promotes Calmness
Teachers are mindful that a clean and tidy space facilitates calm and learning, and that organization lends to your child’s sense of peace and order. They stick to a rigorous cleaning schedule, which also safeguards your child’s health. While the younger children nap, toys are sanitized and at the end of each day, floors are mopped and work surfaces are thoroughly wiped down. In addition to our daily cleaning routine, we hire a cleaning service to deep clean our school every weekend.
Teachers Understand Your Child's Needs Through Observation
Teachers get to know your child and take into consideration their personal pace and level of development. With a combination of loving care and early childhood education expertise, our teachers create lesson plans and make thoughtful observations of your child’s progress. By understanding your child’s personality and learning style, our teachers can be sensitive to and cater to exactly what it is your child needs to learn and grow.
Parenting Resources And A Lending Library Provide Support
The center supports your child’s education beyond the classroom with a lending library, so you can read a variety of books to your child at home. Speak with teachers about any concerns you may have, or take a peek at our parent resource library, where you can find information about parenting techniques, community activities, and other parent resources. Teachers and staff are always available should you need any extra support for your family.
A Solid Community That Aides foster parents
The center’s Foster Kids Program understands and supports the complex and rewarding relationships between children and their caregivers, both at home and at school. Highly trained professionals provide support for families to help provide children with a structured, nurturing environment for optimal growth. The Foster Kids Program has priority enrollment and all non-state covered fees are waived for you.
