“No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” ~ James P. Comer, MD, MPH.
Our infant and toddler program is centered on relationships. Research has shown that the best learning occurs when children have strong attachments with their caregivers. Attachments are made when children feel safe and secure, and their needs are consistently met. Through consistent and caring routines and play, caregivers/teachers guide infants into language, increased self regulation, self feeding, awareness of self and others, discovery of surroundings, and coordination of movement.

Our three- to four-year-olds’ classroom and our four- to five-year-olds’ classroom are using the InvestiGatorClub Curriculum by Robert-Leslie publishing. The InvestigatorClub is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education's Early Childhood Curriculum Project.
Our three- to four-year-old group use the Just for Threes InvesitigatorClub curriculum. Children using Just for Threes develop important readiness skills in all ten learning domains as they explore the world around them, using their senses, asking questions, and finding answers though exploration and play.
Our four- to five-year-old group use the The InvestiGator Club's PreK with STEAM curriculum. It is a comprehensive, fully integrated curriculum centered on science themes that build upon children’s curiosity and creativity through language and literacy, physical activity, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
One aspect of this curriculum is built around family connections. The family is the child's first and most important teacher.
