New Albany and Gahanna Infant Daycare

Our Infant Care programs are for children ages 6 weeks to 18 months. Infancy is a time for bonding. It is the most difficult time for both parent and child to be separated. An infant’s rapid growth requires energy and patience from the child-care provider. Although all stages of development are important, special emphasis is required during infancy as it is a time for the development of security and trust—a time when the attachment/bonding process takes place. Infants are cuddled, rocked, and loved. The infant stimulation program contributes to the physical, intellectual, and social maturation of each child.

THE TRANSITION ROOM

New Albany and Gahanna Toddler Daycare

Young toddlers are particularly curious. They are exploring their power over the child-care provider through obstinacy, temper tantrums, and negativism. During this stage, it is especially important to provide consistency in allowing choices, setting limits, and utilizing appropriate guidance methods. Providing nurturing consistency and support enables children to understand expectations and meets their need for feelings of safety and security.

New Albany and Gahanna Preschool Daycare

The preschooler is embarking on the age of discovery, inventiveness, curiosity, and development of behavior patterns. At this time, children are rapidly developing skills such as exploration of language and reason, and comprehension of symbols. Gentle guidance, structure, and encouragement assist them in accomplishing these tasks.

New Albany and Gahanna Kindergarten Daycare

During Pre-Kindergarten children develop maturity and independence. Our child care providers offer a stimulating yet challenging environment designed to increase each child’s sense of self-esteem, self-concept, self-worth and sense of belonging and help them form a strong cognitive basis for the school years to follow. Our Pre-Kindergarten curriculum has been designed to prepare children for the Kindergarten experience. The learning-center curriculum exposes children to basic concepts of math, science, music, language arts, multicultural, and writing skills. The classroom atmosphere promotes children’s interest and exploration needs. The Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are taught by elementary and early childhood educators.

The full day Kindergarten Program sets the stage for the higher-learning areas. During this stage of development, children are very active, curious, and eager to learn. They are much more cooperative and able to develop close friendships with their peers. Their desire to be independent and assume responsibility makes them truly delightful little individuals. Curriculum exposure includes a variety of opportunities designed to meet the individual learning needs of each child. The teacher incorporates a combination of teaching methods, such as teacher-to- child or a group of children, child-to-child, and group cooperative experiences (learning centers).
