Our classrooms

koalas CLASS

Children entering the Koalas classroom are 12 months old before their 1st day of school. Our Koalas Classroom is where our precious babies become young toddlers.  We understand that our young Koalas are full of energy and curiosity. One year olds are developing self-confidence, while their motor skills improve. A great change that occurs during this stage is the child's ability to begin to express themselves through games, simple words, baby-sign language and reactions. They are developing their own identity, a sense of self, establishing likes and dislikes, as well as, learning to build relationships with their teachers and peers.

The Koalas teachers strive to create a predictable routine for the children. The curriculum guides the development of a daily schedule that is flexible and responsive to individual needs of each child. The schedule provides time and support for transitions, includes both indoor and outdoor experiences and is receptive to a child's need to rest or be active. 

Our goal in the one year old classroom is to support the children as they learn to become independent. The teachers design a learning environment that protects children's health and safety, enabling children to practice motor skills and encourage emerging ones. The space and materials are organized to stimulate exploration, experimentation and conceptual learning. We spend a lot of time nurturing each child verbally and non-verbally with consistent praise and lots of hugs.  We are excited to be able to love and nurture your little one and look forward to being a part of their growth and development!

MARIPOSAS CLASS

Children entering the Mariposas classroom must be 23 months old before their first day of school. Mariposas classroom is for our young Spanish learners. At this stage of development children are learning skills such as; taking turns, engaging in make believe play, using simple words to communicate their likes and dislikes, and showing more interest in group games and activities. You will see throughout the months that children at this age start forming special bonds with their teachers and peers. A great change that occurs during this stage is the child's ability to begin to express themselves through simple words, 2-5 word sentences and the natural progression of their social-emotional development. This age is an exciting time for parents and for teachers! 

 

Young Toddlers are experiencing huge cognitive, social-emotional, and communication strides; which ultimately assist them in exploring and mastering their new classroom and schedule. During this stage, toddlers are able to sort objects by shapes, colors, and sizes, they are developing fine and gross motor skills, as well as, imitating the behaviors of their peers.​Our goal in the Mariposas classroom is to provide opportunities for each child to develop through their own personal learning style.

 

Our teachers provide age appropriate experiences that are designed to aid social-emotional, cognitive, and language development. Throughout the day children are free to explore and discover their environment, through play based activities and one-on-one interactions. We are here to foster each child's natural curiosity, while also encouraging their personal ideas and self-esteem to fully blossom!

Ositos CLASS

Children entering the Ositos classroom must be 3 years old by December 31st. Children entering this classroom must be almost fully independent in using the toilet. Our Ositos 3-year-old classroom builds on the foundation set in the Mariposas classroom, and integrates the learning centers, and learning areas that are age-appropriate for young preschool students. Our teachers focus on expanding communication skills, social-emotional skills, and continue building cooperative peer-to-peer relationships. As children continue to learn more about themselves and others, you will see your child start to form healthy and enduring bonds with their peers. Younger preschoolers are becoming autonomous, they are engaging in more collaborative play and fantasy play. Over all they are getting to know what they can and cannot do, and we are here to support their complete positive development!

Our goal in the Ositos classroom is to establish a balance between routine experiences and opportunities for exploration and play based learning. You will find children engaged in teacher-lead activities, circle time, group games and self-directed play. Teachers provide children with techniques on how to navigate challenges and build a repertoire of problem-solving skills.
 
We model positive communication skills, teach age-appropriate negotiation skills and show children how to be self-aware of our personal space and environment. In this class you will see your child starting to master the Spanish language, build strong relationships, and challenge themselves to become academically competent individuals.
