Caring for infants 6 weeks to 18 months

Baby Ducks

Your infant is provided with a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment with programs suited to his or her rapidly expanding imagination. We focus on the needs and interests of babies as our guides to arranging furniture, toys and materials. Our specialized staff works closely with you to identify your child's individual needs. We schedule sleep, naps, cleanings and feedings based on each infant and respectfully follow and integrate these schedules into our care program. Our staff will also continually adjust each infant’s program as they become physically stronger and more mobile.

Babies are amazing; their quickly developing skills will always be supported by placing high emphasis on building strong bodies, language stimulation, communication building and play activities! Interesting music, cause & effect toys, art creation and planned gross motor exercises will balance a day of comforting rest and beginning friendships.

Now offering School Age Connections, a Full Day Remote Learning Support Program!

Before and After School can be wasted hours or they can be designed to be just what your child needs!

With that in mind, EduKids provides opportunities for your child to be part of an important group of friends relaxing in quiet and calm activities or revitalized in exciting and active play. Engaging children in long term, as well as short-term goals further this group’s ability to productively start and extend their formal school day.

Thoughtfully designed environments and our fantastic teachers round out a great school day for your child!

A Summer of Discovery! 5 to 12 years

Summer Camp

Children will personalize their learning throughout each week of Discovery Zone. To launch each theme, educators will pose strategic questions of inquiry, carving out a more narrowed, topic of exploration geared specifically to the children’s interests. A simple question to start this collaborative process could be “I wonder what I will learn?”.

As educators and children travel down this path of collaboration, intentional questions of inquiry will be offered each step of the way, including: “I wonder how I become an inventor?”,” I wonder how I can save the planet?”, “I wonder what the future will look like?”. Based on both the responses of the children, and observations made by educators, new materials will be provided, and activities will be developed to deepen the topic of exploration.

Educators will have a resource set of activities separated by theme to draw from based on the interests, skills, and guided direction of the children. Themes will run for two weeks each to allow for optimal time for inquiry, collaboration, reflection, and celebration of discovery.
