Infant Classroom – 6 weeks to 16 months
Infants will spend their time in an enriched, stimulating, classroom designed for maximum supervision and safety. Infant room staff provide developmentally appropriate educational experiences to meet infants’ many needs. Infants receive individualized attention in a small group setting. We strive to provide excellent communication about your child’s time with us through in person updates .
Toddler Classroom – Ages 17 months to 33 months
Toddlers will be encouraged to explore in a safe and clean toddler-sized classroom. Toddlers will be engaged in self-directed learning, as well be provided with structured learning experiences like group time, stories, finger plays, table activities, music & movement experiences and open-ended art activities. Toddlers will experience one-on-one time throughout their day, as well as have many opportunities to engage in play with new and familiar friends. Our Toddler room focuses on creating predictable care routines and social emotional development.
(POTTY TRAINED children, aged 33 months to summer before Kindergarten)
Preschoolers will have stimulating days full of learning academic concepts- yet they will be allowed plenty of time to be kids! Tick-Tock incorporates self-directed and open-ended learning. Preschoolers will focus on pre-literacy skills, they will also begin to experiment with science, gain exposure to math concepts and have open-ended sensory and art opportunities. The preschool teachers will offer small group and whole group learning experiences with stories, songs, finger plays, fine motor activities, and large motor group games including gymnastics and other extracurricular activities offered. Preschoolers will be guided and encouraged to develop their social emotional and self-help skills when they’re with us.
Summer Camp Programs/School Holiday Programs/School Age Programs
We offer these programs for school-aged children up to 12 years of age. We incorporate weekly and daily themes with fun activities, games, movies, and projects. Spaces fill quickly, so see our director to reserve a spot. We bring all field trips, entertainment, shows, and activities to our facility to provide safe, quality camp fun for children.
We recognize the strain the current climate creates for parents. With schools potentially closed in your community, we want to let you know that we remain a resource for families with needs for their school-age children, particularly those families supporting recovery efforts in critical roles (healthcare, police, fire, EMT, etc.).
We are closely following the guidance from the CDC, as well as local and state officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain a safe and healthy school environment.
We want to keep students engaged and learning at this time, so they can become their best self.
