In the Infant Center our main focus is to provide quality, attentive, loving care for your baby. We provide a fun, nurturing environment that will foster the ever changing needs of your infant on a physical, emotional, and social level. Our infant and toddler curriculum is loosely structured to take advantage of your baby’s natural rhythms. He’ll eat when he’s hungry. She’ll sleep when she’s tired. And in between, our teachers give all the love and attention children need. Hugging, singing, rocking, and playing are standard fare in our Center. Attentive and loving adults always talk to babies especially during routines. Teachers are gentle and respond quickly to babies’ activities.
In the Toddler Program our goal is to provide children with the learning tools that they will need to enter preschool in a nurturing, loosely structured, and educationally enriching environment. Our curriculum is designed to target age appropriate learning and provide fun and exciting activities to ensure that your child’s day is full of great learning experiences. Children learn through structured play and age appropriate lessons, songs, and stories, independent learning through discovery, participation and interaction with others. We have so much fun.
Our preschool curriculum offers special programs designed to meet two, three, four and five year-old specific needs. We take a comprehensive approach to math, science, reading and writing readiness that includes many opportunities to experience the joy of learning. Activities in music, movement, dance, dramatics, and art are integral part of our preschool curriculum. Our Pre–K and Junior-K programs give children daily customized learning within smaller classrooms and individualized attention. Our instruction in all academic subjects permits children to learn at their own pace. We select challenging levels of experience to meet each child’s individual needs.
Little Genius Academy’s Kindergarten Program’s ultimate goal is to prepare your child to successfully enter school next year, and to become a successful lifetime leaner. In the short term, we will introduce much of the scheduling and activities that will make the transition to school an easy one. Throughout the three-year preschool curriculum, which encompasses Preschool, Pre-K, and then Kindergarten, your child will acquire a full breadth of developmental skills necessary to successfully enter school eager and ready to learn.
Physical Activity Time - Children play on our playground or, if the weather is uncooperative, enjoy games or songs inside. It's time spent giving their bodies what they need, while connecting with friends to talk about their day at school.
Group Meeting Time - The children gather together to foster a sense of community. Each child shares a positive experience from their day, which gives our teachers the opportunity to get to know your child, respond to their varying needs and adapt the program to fit their interests.
Homework/Quiet Time - Provides 30 minutes for homework completion. If your child doesn't have homework, she may participate in a constructive, quiet activity, such as leisure reading, puzzle construction or completion of an art-inspired activity.
