Infants (Not available at our Great Neck Location)
Moms can enjoy a little time for themselves while their infants have an opportunity to make new friends and explore their world in a safe and loving environment. Children can come as little as one day a week or all week long.
Toddlers (Not available at our Great Neck Location)
Toddlers socialize and play. They have boundless energy and like to explore their surroundings. There is time to sing and to listen to stories. We help them build vocabulary, work on fine and gross motor skills and encourage imagination. Best of all, there is lots of time to cuddle. Children can come as little as one day a week or all week long.
2 Year Olds
Two year olds learn that it is fun, safe and exciting to have a place and time with friends while Mom is elsewhere. These children are in a rich learning environment that helps them expand their vocabularies, find appropriate ways to express their creativity, learn social skills, and basic concepts during play, music and story time. Children can come as little as one day a week or as much as all week long.
3 Year Olds Preschool
Three year olds continue to improve their social skills with additional emphasis on appropriate classroom behavior. Lessons on shapes, colors, numbers and the alphabet are presented through hands-on activities as well through stories, music, craft making and playtime. For our Three Year Old Program children may attend two, three, or five days a week.
4 Year Olds Pre-Kindergarten
Four year olds attending our Pre-K programs learn so much! The children learn to write their first and last names and the alphabet in both upper and lower case letters. The class has an emphasis on phonics, math computations, science, and social studies. Children attend music, computer and will go on field trips. These children are extremely well prepared for a high quality kindergarten. For our Four Year Old Program children may attend two, three, or five days a week.
Our kindergarten addresses the need for small classes and better preparation for first grade. Children entering our kindergarten with the fine preparation of one of our four years old programs or from another quality program can use what they already know and move forward. Our kindergarten puts a strong emphasis on phonics that in recent years has been phased out of the public schools. These children are instructed in a systematic phonics approach that gives children the skills to become strong readers. Reading, writing, math (including time, money and fractions), computer, social studies, music and art provide extended opportunities. So much can be accomplished because of our small class size, longer hours and fine teachers. Most years children start first grade material in February or March. Our Kindergarten program is a five day a week program.
