Important Reminders for Hourly Care
All paper work must be filled out before using our services. Space is limited so it's best to schedule ahead of time. Drop-in care has specific drop-off times because this is also a daycare and we want to make sure everything runs smoothly. No drop-off or pick-up between 12:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Our little ones are resting during that period. If your child is staying past 12:00 PM, he/she will need lunch. Download the forms below and bring them with you at drop off. A physical form from the pediatrician is mandatory. Please have the last physical date and all immunizations posted on it.

Explore Create Play
These days of playing, exploring, and cuddling are exactly what they need to grow and learn! By the end of their second year, you can expect children to be creating simple sentences, like 'more milk' or 'want that'. These little guys have minds of their own, and strong feelings and preferences that they express with gusto! At this age they are also expanding their ability to memorize, and can imitate what they see others do, hours or even days, later. This is a crucial time developmentally to give them continuous support as they begin to take on more responsibility and confidence in their own self-motivated learning. In our Toddler program our curriculum allows for the children to engage in fun activities while also developing their various areas of growth.

Learn Play Grow
Acquiring self-help skills is an important part of the preschool experience. In our preschool program, the children continue their growth while engaging in fun activities. We encourage children to clean up toys and materials through modeling, music, and song.
Children are learning to be responsible for their own things and keeping items in their assigned cubbies. At this age, they enjoy their friendships with each other. Our teachers give them plenty of time for unstructured, imaginative play, which helps them develop language skills and socialization.
Our half-day preschool is ONLY in the Abington location. It's a mini version of our full-day program. The program runs from 8:30 AM -- 12:30 PM. AM snacks are included, however, we ask that you pack your own lunch. We cannot heat food or store lunch in the refrigerator, so it's best that you bring ice packs and thermoses. If you need to come earlier or stay later, you can take advantage of our hourly drop-in care, provided we have space.
Preparing for Kindergarten
Preparing for Kindergarten At our preschool, children are engaged in activities that prepare them in many ways for the kindergarten year. Fine motor development continues with regular activities, which include drawing, painting, cutting, puzzles, and writing. We lay the foundation for later skills in math by counting, measuring, weighing, cooking, and exploring relative values. Furthermore, to develop the children's natural curiosity, we conduct experiments of all kinds. We also explore literacy on many levels including stories, books, poems and songs, as well as making the connection between letters, words, and sentences expressing thoughts.
