We offer programs for children ranging from 8 weeks to 12 years old. If you have any questions about these programs, please feel free to contact us at 404-284-2327.
Infants (8 weeks – 12 months)
Our infant area provides the highest quality care in an environment that is designed with the parent and child in mind. While in our care, the children are stimulated through reading, music, exercise, outdoor time, facial and verbal mimicking as well as lots of hugs and tickles. Parental scheduling and feeding preferences are used in this classroom with daily reporting provided by staff.
Toddlers (1 year-1 ½ years)
At this age, children are meeting new challenges as fast as they come. Crawling, walking and eventually running are levels they accomplish in what seems like a blink of an eye. Children learn best if they are in a stimulating environment. Music, stories, outdoor play, art projects, and learning simplicities envelop much of the day. Our caregivers are dedicated to helping each child develop these skills through a trusting and loving relationship. A parental daily report is given to update each family on meal times, nap times, toilet training and all activities accomplished each day.
Explorers (1 ½ year to 2 ½ years)
This classroom is full of physical activity, growth, and development. Children really start growing into their own and establishing their independence. Our teachers patiently assist children and families through the challenges of building communication skills, learning boundaries through exploration, and toilet-training. Some lessons our Explorers explore are early learning basics (letters, colors, shapes), manipulative play, sensory tables, dramatic play, music, and lots and lots of physical activity!
Busy Bees (2 ½ years-3 years)
Having established themselves as individuals in the Explorers classroom our Busy Bees take advantage of every opportunity to explore the world around them and build their knowledge base. New adventures in the classroom in group play and interactive games encourage children to build relationships with and learn from each other. Teacher focus is on developing the fine and gross motor skills of each child while introducing new concepts and subject matter. Reading, writing, math, science, art, manipulative and dramatic play provide for lots of learning in this room.
Gummy Bears (3 years and 4 years)
At this stage, they are introduced to a variety of activities that targets the following areas: reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Also, these learners are exposed to some activities meant to further develop their gross motor skills. Lessons at this stage also include plenty of movements such as running and jumping.
Georgia Lottery Pre-K (4-5)
Our free Pre-K program focuses on preparing your child for kindergarten. We will implement the learning standards presented by the State of Georgia Prekindergarten Common Core. More concepts of mathematics are introduced in this classroom. We use various counting manipulatives to introduce number operations such as addition and subtraction. Your child will begin to read when he/she is ready. Our classroom is filled with award-winning children’s literature from a variety of genres and comfortable reading areas for your child to enjoy.
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM (Ages 5-12)
As children get older and more independent, they need new challenges. That’s why we offer a school-age program for before and after school care and enrichment programs that address the changing and more varied needs of growing school-age children. Transportation is available to several local schools for your school-age child. School-aged children have lots of fun networking with friends from other schools. Reading, math, and science activities ensure that your child’s mind is engaged and help create a lifelong love of learning and exploration. We continue to work on manners and responsibilities, puzzles, memory quizzes, arts and crafts, organized games, and hands-on activities.
