Young children learn through play, and our infant program is designed to provide the skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning. We're committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child. In addition to caring for your infant, everything we do is designed for learning and teaching your baby the necessary skills to transition to the toddler level.
Our Toddler classroom provides a smooth transition for babies who have learned to become more independent and are ready for more hands-on activities. This program allows children to take a daily adventure full of opportunities that build on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Our Pre-Kindergarten 3-4 classrooms are academically structured by skill level to offer an environment that encourages children to develop their capabilities and interests at their own pace and according to their individual need. This classroom provides academic, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development to children 3 to 5 years of age to ensure a successful start to elementary school. Our goal is to recognize the uniqueness of each and every child and provide positive encouragement for their continued growth.
The ABC (Arkansas Better Chance) Program was created for 3–5-year-old children whose family’s gross income does not exceed the 200% of the Federal poverty level. Our objective is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes development and enhances learning for each child. We strive to establish relationships with the families of the children in our care and to collaborate with our community members to deliver high quality Early Education services. The program utilizes a written overall curriculum plan that covers topics like cultural diversity, social and emotional development, and language skills. Children participate in a daily schedule that includes indoor/outdoor activities, quiet/active activities, individual/group activities, fine/gross motor skill-building activities, and children/teacher-initiated activities.
Qualifying children attend this
program free of charge.
