Development screenings conducted twice a year, once in the beginning of the school year and once in the late spring, to assess student progress and growth. This allows teachers to assess skill levels and target specific developmental deficits for each child. Daily communication is sent home with each child regarding activities, behavior, sleep routines, etc
Our curriculum is literacy-based and focused on language development and social/emotional growth for the infants. Activities are centered around daily routines, as well as on special play time, talking time, and cuddling routines. Baby sign gestures are introduced in this program to promote early and healthy communication.
