It might look like just child's play, but toddlers are hard at work learning important physical skills as they gain muscle control, balance, and coordination.  Each new skill lets them progress to the next one, building on a foundation that leads to more complicated physical tasks, such as jumping rope, kicking a ball on the run, or turning a cartwheel.

Preschool

Ages 2 years 9 months- 5 years

Ratio:  1 Teacher to 10 Children


Preschool children want to touch, taste, smell, hear, and test things for themselves. They are eager to learn. They learn by experiencing and by doing. Preschoolers learn from their play. They are busy developing skills, using language, and struggling to gain inner control.  Preschool children learn best by doing. They need a variety of activities. They need indoor and outdoor space. They need a balance between active and quiet play.

Infant  

Ages 6 weeks- 15 months

Ratio: 1 Teacher to 3 children (One additional educator for four- seven children)


Infants and young children learn about the world through touch, sight, sound, taste, and smell.  They learn about relationships from how people touch and hold them, and from the tones of voice and facial expressions people use when caring for them.  When babies have their needs met - being fed when hungry, comforted when
crying, held and touched gently, and kept warm and dry - they begin to trust the adults that care for them. This early sense of trust will help them develop positive relationships for the rest of their lives.  Young children also learn through play, and they thrive on repetition.  The playful interactions we have with our children are not just fun. They are the foundation of future learning.  These games can contribute to their brain and language development!
