*Helpful hint for Parents and Guardians regarding required medical information:

If you are having difficulties obtaining your child's immunization records, you can call the Department of Health in Bridgewater at 902-543-0850. They will fax the child's full health record to you after providing them with the child's full name and date-of-birth. Just bring us a copy of this record, and that's all we need to meet licensing requirements!

Infant Room (6 to 17 months)

Monday - Friday​:  7:00am - 6:00pm


The infant cirriculum is based on developing positive relationships in the growth and development of the children. Infants learn by experiencing the environment through their senses - seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and feeling.

Teachers greet infants and parents warmly and enthusiastically each day, and respond to the infants' needs, helping to foster trust in their caregiver while feeling safe and secure in their environment. Infant reports including pertinent information about the infant's day (feeding, diaper changes, sleeping time) are shown to parents on a daily basis.

 

Toddler Room (18 to 35 months)

Monday - Friday:  7:00am - 6:00pm​


Toddlers are given a wide variety of age-appropriate art media and are provided the opportunity to explore and manipulate the materials. They learn about the world around them through regular routine tasks - diaper changing, toilet learning, eating and other routines will be viewed as learning experiences.

Each day includes plenty of teacher-child contact, with teachers supporting the children as they acquire more skills. Teachers play with children modeling for them how to play imaginatively. Children have opportunities for exploratory activities and large-muscle play in both indoor and outdoor play areas.

Every day has a set routine, but schedules will be flexible and dictated by the childrens' needs. Parents are provided daily reports, sharing any pertinent information about the child.

Pre-School Room (3 to 5 years)

Monday - Friday​


We offer two Pre-School programs, the Junior Pre-School Program for children 2 ½ to 4 years of age, and the Senior Pre-School Program for children 3 ½ to 5 years of age.
 

Teachers provide experiences that meet the childrens' needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas, including physical, emotional, social, and intellectual. They faciliate the children's learning by asking questions, adding more ideas or materials, and by making suggestions. Teachers also update parents on a regular basis about their child's development.

Children will learn through interaction with teachers, active exploration, materials and other children. They will use their large motor skills everyday as they play in both the indoor and outdoor play areas.

 

Playgroup (6 months to 5 years) NOT OFFERED PRESENTLY DUE TO COVID-19 REGULATIONS
