Explorer Classroom Classroom

Tuition based program for children. Parents can enroll children for 3, 4, or 5 full or half days. DHS payments for childcare accepted.

Infant care in a safe, supportive, loving environment. Teachers speak in a pleasant, soothing voice and use simple language when talking to infants. The teachers frequently talk with, sing to, and read to infants. They listen and respond to sounds that infants make, imitate them, and respect infant’s sounds as the beginning of language.

We respect each child's individual schedules and needs and teachers adjust to each infants’ individual feeding and sleeping patterns to help ensure a smooth transition from home to center and to home again.

Curriculum

Through the implementation of the High Scope Curriculum Infants learn through their own experience, trial and error, repetition, and imitation. Our curriculum focuses on cognitive and motor skills, active exploration, and movement. We provide a broad array of stimulating experiences within a reliable framework through structure and routine.

Building Self Esteem

Our teachers support learning by ensuring the environment is safe and emotionally supportive. Teachers respect infant’s individual abilities and unique personalities and respond positively as each baby develops.
