The Creative Curriculum is a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate curriculum, which includes objectives for children’s development and learning. Babies are encouraged to use their senses to learn about and make sense of their world. We balance individual attention with group experiences to ensure that your child is learning in productive ways. Children are exposed to age appropriate experiences that will engage and inspire the child.

Language development and listening skills are encouraged through verbal and visual stimulation of color words, shapes, animals, environment, and more through music.
