Our curriculum is based on The Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards. Teachers write weekly lesson plans that are reviewed by the Director. The lesson plans are designed to provide children with the opportunity to develop and grow in the areas of social, emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual and language. Classroom themes, reading and math readiness concept skills are sent home monthly in memo form to make parents aware of the concepts and materials the children are working on each month.

Before your child begins on regular basis, we ask that parent to plan an introductory visit. This enables your child to meet his/her teacher and explore the center, especially his/her classroom. Make sure you check your child's cubby daily for important information and homework (older classes). Within 45 days of a child's enrollment, the child will be evaluated using the Ages and Stages Screening format. Parent(s) will be called in for a conference to review the evaluation results with the teacher during the 45 day period. Parent(s) are invited to talk with teachers regularly. They are also welcomed to call the teacher during the day to check on your child. The best time to call would be during nap time (12:30p.m - 2:00p.m).
