Infant Class- 6 weeks through 13 months
This program promotes growth and fosters attainment of developmental milestones. Each child sets his or her own schedule to simulate their home environment. Activities include tummy time, floor play, gross motor development for rolling/crawling/walking skills, and more. Formula and solid infant food is provided through the Child and Adult Care Food Program at no cost to families. This center also accommodates parental choice to send in breastmilk.
When an infant turns 10 months of age we begin to transition each child onto the center wide schedule for meals and nap time. When an infant turns one year of age, is walking or pre-walking with active crawling, and adapted to solid food they are eligible to transition to the Young Toddler Class. Transitions take place during August of each year, mid-year transitions take place when able depending on enrollment.
Young Toddler Class- 13months through 30 months
Our Young Toddler program promotes language and gross motor development. Teachers use baby sign language and engage children in sensory play and small group activities. Children engage in free explorative play with focused teacher directed activities and song/story time daily.
Children continue to the Older Toddler Class after becoming two years of age and when developmentally ready for the next stage of learning. Transitions take place during August of each year, mid year transitions take place when able depending on enrollment and availability.
Older Toddler Class- Ages 24 months through 41 months
This program promotes social emotional development, as well as manners, cooperative play, and self help skills including toilet training. Children engage in simple decision-making and are introduced to academic concepts including colors, shapes, numbers and letters.
Children progress to the Pre-Kindergarten Class once achieving toilet training, become three years of age, and developmentally ready for the next class. Transitions take place during August of each year, mid-year transitions take place when able depending on enrollment.
The Pre-Kindergarten Class has two programs:
Full Week Pre-K- children are scheduled M-F and may attend up to 10hours of care.
Part Week, Part Day Pre-K- children are enrolled for either 2, 3, or 4 days per week and attend class from 9am-1pm. This class follows the DV school calendar and does not meet on days that DV is closed. Children may request to stay additional hours in the afternoon based on availability.
Children continue to learn about structure and scheduling, and to develop self-control and self help skills. The program emphasizes school readiness by focusing on letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and name recognition. Children who are transitioning to Kindergarten will adapt to a schedule which highlights the necessary skill sets for Kinder-transition. Our teachers work with the Delaware Valley School District on this outline of skills to accomplish.
School Age Class- Grades K-5th
This program is a weekly M-F class for children in grades K-5 and enrolled in the Delaware Valley School District. Children attend in the mornings between 6:30-8:30am for bus pick up, and in the afternoon from 4:00-6:00pm for after school care.
