Infant Program (6 weeks - 12 months)
The infant program serves children from the age of 6 weeks until the age of 1 year. The program is designed to duplicate the loving care and gentle stimulation that an infant needs to grow and develop to his or her full potential. Flexible scheduling allows each child to eat, sleep, or play according to his or her own natural timetable.
Young Toddlers (12 months - 24 months)
Young Toddlers enrolled in the program adhere to their own individual schedule throughout the day. Information provided by the parents is used to plan each child's day according to his/her needs. As a result, feeding, diapering, and napping are each an integral part of the daily curriculum.
We talk, read and sing to Young Toddler, hold them and rock them and maintain the routine you have established for feeding, sleeping, and playing. Young Toddlers participate in experience that will introduce them to gross motor skills, finger plays, songs, tapes, outdoor and indoor playtime.
Older Toddlers (24 months - 36 months)
The Older Toddles participate in experiences that will introduce them to dramatic play, arts and beginning educational concepts, sand and water play, music and dance classes and hands-on activities. Your child will delight in the storytelling and music which we have selected to help them develop their communication skills.
The Older Toddlers are provided with the opportunity to gain a sense of mastery over their environment through exploration and play. Creativity and freedom of choice are encouraged as toddlers assert their independence.
Preschool (3 years - 4 years)
The Preschool Program offers a wide variety of experiences. Children learn pronunciation of all vowel and consonant sounds to prepare to read. They are also tought to recognize the value of the numbers, colors, and shapes.

Pre-K Program (4 years - 5 years)
The Pre-Kindergarten Program is an integral part of the whole school in philosophy and the quest for academic excellence. The children entrusted to our care are considered very much a part of the entire school community.
Our developmental program focuses on social skills and emotional growth while preparing the children for a smooth transition into kindergarten. Students' time is devoted each day to reading readiness, math principles, and basic skills. These lessons are interwoven with of art, music, and indoor and outdoor play.
Kindergarten (5 years - 6 years)
Our primary goal is for children to feel safe and secure. Our Center provides a warm and loving environment through which a child becomes familiar in a classroom setting. We want children to discover a hobby, a hidden talent, expand on already acquired knowledge, and just have a great time with their peers.
We are proud to be a Private Academic School since January 2010. Our program and curriculum are based on the Pennsylvania’s Kindergarten Standards. We focus on reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, library skill, and physical education. We support children’s individualized learning opportunities by providing them with meaningful experiences that engage their interests, abilities, and cultures.
