2 to 2.5 years old. Treehouse is your child's first step away from home toward their learning experience. Here, your child’s emotional growth flourishes. They will learn how to trust other adults and peers, as well as adapt to a new setting. Your child will be able to explore their individuality and curiosity in a safe, nurturing environment. Their cognitive skills will develop organically through countless fun, hands-on, and teacher-directed activities. Along the way, they will learn how to build their confidence and their language and social skills, allowing them to make friends that last a lifetime.
2.5 to 3 years old. In Rainforest, we start introducing the following during the first couple of months and enforce them throughout the year: verbalizing their needs and wants, toilet training, and problem-solving. Helping children verbalize their needs and wants enables them to feel empowered. Toilet training is introduced to children who are not yet toilet trained once we see an interest. Problem solving skills, one of the tenets of Family School, starts to be emphasized in this group. We understand that your child comes to us with unique experiences, interests, and learning styles. Our goal is to truly know your child and use this knowledge to guide, support, and motivate them, giving them a powerful and joyous learning experience.
3 to 4 years old. Our program in Hill provides children with opportunities to expand horizons through hands-on exploration both indoors and outdoors. We encourage them to create and explore in-depth, giving them the chance to suggest ideas for activities and help us determine classroom activities according to their interests. A big part of Rainforest’s focus is developing social skills, independence and self-esteem. These are achieved through setting goals and expectations, accomplishments, limits, and responsibilities (jobs).
4 to 5 years old. Riverbed is your child’s stepping stone to Kindergarten. Here, they become proficient in their social skills through sharing, compromising, turn taking and problem solving using conflict resolution. Our classroom offers a good amount of nature, both indoors and outdoors, providing the children with opportunities to show respect and care for animals and the environment. Our play-based curriculum feeds the children’s intellect and imagination, and relates to their own curiosity, interests and capabilities. Children are provided with rich opportunities to widen their knowledge and experiences through various cultural activities and field trips. They also get to explore a wide range of interests through classroom activities like music, singing, cooking, and yoga. Your child’s holistic experience will allow them to develop naturally and to grow socially and emotionally, making them ready for the next level of their education and for anything the world has to offer them.
