Our Programs

Curriculum

Beyond Centers and Circle Time ©

Our Beyond Centers and Circle Time© curriculum maintains a balance between supporting your child's acquisition of skills and knowledge that will prepare him or her for later school success and the joys of experiencing a playful childhood.

We offer daily opportunities for engaging, educating and enriching every child through an afternoon planned with Physical Education, Art, and Spanish. Every child receives an opportunity to participate in our enrichment programs in the afternoon.

In Physical Education, children learn about cooperative play and teamwork through a variety of games and activities that are specific for each age group. Each day children at all levels receive an Art lesson as well as a Spanish lesson.
