Our programs provide a mix of child-directed activities to encourage creativity, thinking skills, and authentic problem solving skills. Teacher directed activities prepare students for kindergarten and focus on the necessary skills for a jump start to school. We will focus on the PA early learning standards through daily activities using language, math, science, physical skills and creative arts along with encouraging personal-social growth and learning while encouraging healthy lifestyles. Appropriate research-based approaches to learning will always be used. We will also focus on a monthly mission project, reaching out to help others as well as learn about others. Each class level has its own goals based on developmental appropriateness. Read More
