“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is a necessity.”

Kay Redfield Jamison

Ages 3.8 years to
5 years

1 educator for every 13 children, maximum
group size of 26 kindergarten children

Kindergarten children tend to be energetic and enjoy recognition. They may talk about having a ‘best friend’ and want to be like their peers.

Our educators prioritize each child’s well-being by supporting their need to express themselves, to receive individual attention, and to belong.

Children are invited to participate in our fun, play-based programs to further develop their growing self-help, self-regulation, and social skills. They enjoy daily outdoor play in all kinds of weather which is important for health and well-being.

Parents can expect a flexible group routine with two healthy snacks provided daily.

    group size of 30 school-agers

    In our lively programs, our educators encourage children to set goals, make plans, celebrate achievements, and to approach challenges as opportunities to learn.

    School-agers in grades 4 to 6 generally progress from playing alone and in small groups to having multiple friends and social groups. They may enjoy competition and have more interest in forming clubs.

    Our educators model respectful and positive social interactions while acknowledging children’s growing need for independence and time with friends.

    Parents can expect a flexible group routine, two healthy snacks, and daily outdoor play in all kinds of weather.
