Children are taught at each level to be prepared for the next group.  Many factors contribute to the child’s placement in a group:  age, personality, development, amount of time spent in the Program and others. 

We offer part-time care as well as fulltime care for children. Our students have a variety of schedules and folks are coming and going throughout the day. We may move children around to “visit” other classrooms as needed. We must always maintain appropriate adult: child ratios based on the age of the youngest child in the classroom at the time.

 

The Rainbow Room

Children are 12 months to 18 months (or older depending on the development of the child and the availability in the classrooms). The Rainbow room serves 9 babies.
