“Wow! I can’t believe how beautiful, spacious, and light this place is.” We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard these words from parents whom we’ve had the pleasure of giving a tour of our daycare facility. And that’s before they’ve even seen our quiet yet majestic garden! Our close-knit and passionate team of experts is always on hand to answer questions, share tips, and provide advice on practical parenting issues. For example, we’re happy to explain why we use features such as hanging cradles in our infant groups and why we give your child individual attention by having them sit on our lap.
We support our younger and older toddlers in becoming independent, and we assess what your child needs in their development: getting their own fruit, helping to set the table, serving their own food, and grabbing a dustpan and brush to clean something up. Our older toddlers start their morning with “circle time,” to prepare them for elementary school (where this will be a regular feature).
We offer a yard for younger and older toddlers and a separate section where our youngest charges can run around as they please and safely enjoy the fresh air. Children are also encouraged to help with planting and caring for all the vegetables and flowers in our vegetable garden. We sow, tend to, and harvest cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, and raspberries (although harvesting these has been virtually impossible, as they’re the kids’ favorites, and once they get their hands on them...).
The staff members at our in-house afterschool daycare program prepare healthy snacks and distribute them among our children. Being multitalented, they even provide story time to our infant group!
