Infants & Toddlers

Loving and nurturing care are two of the most important factors in the healthy development of your infant. Your baby will be held, nurtured by loving caregivers. We took the time to choose the most stimulating toys, colorful books and even the best music. We talk, read to them, cradle, play peek-a-boo, and sing lullaby until they fall asleep. Unlike most, we give you an account of your baby’s care, including sleeping, eating, and diapering.

It is amazing how quickly toddlers progress in all areas of development. They are able to take their actions, teacher direction and then problem solve. This self-discovery is what they thrive on and our safe environment allows each child to develop naturally, at his or her own pace and to do it happily. Our daily account will give you information on diapering, napping, and eating.

Two Year Olds

Two year old love to learn and explore. The world is at their fingertips. Their sense of discovery must be sparked and we do so by providing variety of educational materials and in a creative and colorful environment. The activities assist them in preparing for each transition. The teachers take this time to get all of the children potty trained and ready to move on to the next class. As the children get older we work on early pre-school activities. This will get them ready for pre-school classes later.








                                            

































Preschool

Our educational program “High Reach Learning” for the pre-school children begins in September and ends in June, concurrent with the public school year. We stress numbers, colors, alphabet, nature, science, history, lands and people, music, arts, and crafts. Our program is presented through visual aids, flannel board stories and poems, puppets, books, pictures, discussion, and field trips to local points of interest. We have special activities during the year, which include…seasonal parties, pumpkin hunt, hayride, breakfast with Santa, Easter egg Hunt and the end of the year program. We offer dance and computer classes for the pre-school age children.

Our summer program is less extensive for the pre-school, but they are kept busy with crafts, field trips, water activities, and occasional movies.

School Age

Our School age program provides transportation from the local public schools to the Center each afternoon. If your child attends Kennedy Elementary you can drop your child off in the morning for bus pick up. We transport children to and from Lincoln School each day. In the afternoon we pick up from all of the Pell City Elementary Schools. For those children with homework, we have a special time each day to complete assignments. When school is not in session we plan activities and trips for the children.
