Our children begin as young as 6 weeks of age, and are nurtured in a warm and safe environment: soothing music, soft bedding and play areas, and loving hands meeting every need. They are fed, and cleaned, and cuddled to their hearts delight. They begin their learning, too. Lots of books are read to them, and songs are sung by the scores. They begin learning about sharing, and taking turns. By the time they are one-years-old, they are ready to join the ranks of the exciting world of the toddler room.
The one-year-old classroom is a whirl-wind of excitement, filled with fun and new friends with whom to toddle. Perfecting the art of walking, then running is the first talent our children attain. Learning how to eat with utensils, and drink from a cup is only the beginning. They begin to discover the joy of learning through circle time, and the continued journey of books, and stories. Sharing and taking turns is only a first step of what they will learn as a friend, and there is so much to discover on their own in the playtime centers.
By the time our little ones are two, they have mastered the art of walking, and are ready to find their voice. Circle time takes on a whole new dimension: student participation. Hands on learning, and child input makes the learning experience even more excitingl. They are immersed in colors and shapes. Not only do they get better at sharing, but they begin to learn about caring. Two is terrific!
Our three-year-old class soars with energy and wonder. What used to be the Pre-K curriculum is now the three year old’s stronghold. Developing the skills they will use to read and write is only the beginning of the learning to come. Each child is enveloped with the building blocks to reading and writing. They also begin to learn how to have empathy, and how to be a friend. Social skills are being defined. And everything is learned through play.
By the time our students reach our VPK/ PreK class, they are ready for the most exciting adventure they will ever know: the world of learning to read. Each child learns the letters and their sounds, slowly finding these treasures in their own worlds. With the loving hand of their teachers, the knowledge is imparted through playtime and art, and music, and dance. All the while, with the warm nurturing of their teachers, they also learn about how to be friends, and develop the morals and integrity they will carry with them as they enter the world of elementary education. By graduation day, they proudly walk down the aisle in their caps and gowns and receive not only a giant hug from their teachers, but also a diploma saying they are ready for Kindergarten.
Before & After School Care
We offer your child a nutritious breakfast before we drive him or her to school. After we pick your child up from school, we offer him or her a nutritious snack and then it's homework time. We assist those that have homework with their assignments individually so they can understand and complete their homework before it's time to go home. Once homework is done, children participate in scheduled activities such as arts and crafts, exploring our child center on their own, or enjoying outdoor fun.
Crowned Hart's week-long day camp sessions offer a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of time to play, explore, be creative and make friends, with weekly field trips to local venues.
