Classrooms

Our children are moved room to room based on their individual development, instead of strictly their age. Therefore the ages listed below are accompanied with some of the milestones we consider when placing and transitioning our students.

Infant 1: Six weeks to eight or ten months. As friends start pulling up and crawling with confidence they will transition.

Infant 2: Ten months to 14 months. This room helps build leg muscles and get friends on their feet.

Toddler 1: One year to 18 months. Once a friend is on their feet they will join this room. As they start speaking real words and interacting with others in their play they will transition.

Toddler 2: 18 months to 24 months. Friends will start expanding their communication and diversifying their play. Once they turn two, they will transition.

Twos 1: 2 years to 2 1/2 years. Vocabularies will emerge rapidly and unique personalities will blossom as our friends explore what it means to be themselves. Once they start the potty training process they can transition.

Twos 2: 2 1/2 years to 3 years. As they master the use of the potty and familiarize themselves with the bathroom they will also begin recognizing letters and identifying early math concepts, such as shapes, colors, and counting. Transition into preschool at three years.

Threes: Friends will dive into learning by developing handwriting and beginning phonetics. They will think critically and make real life connections. They will continue developing their social skills through guided conflict resolution and compromise.

Fours: This prekinder program will give your child all the tools they need to succeed in kindergarten. They will master writing their first and last name. They will have a firm understanding of letter sounds and will begin sounding out three letter words and identifying sight words such as "the", "and", and "saw". Our students work one on one with their teacher to gain the confidence they will need to do work independently in elementary school.

Afterschoolers: From five years to twelve years, our after-school friends will make their way off the bus to the Firefly room where they will be able to complete their homework with a snack.
