6 weeks - 12 months
We want your baby's transition from staying at home to be smooth and accommodating. This classroom is designed with a partition to allow our mobile children to play freely, and our newborns to stay safe.
We focus on skills like fine motor, gross motor, social emotional, and language development. Our babies are sung to, cuddled, and are able to create their own schedule for sleeping. You will find your child out for walks in the in a baby carrier or wagon and hanging outside with the pop-up tent.
1 year old
As your child has aged into a toddler, you've seen their personality grow. Our teachers in this room are gentle, loving and understanding as they transition from the Deer Room.
In this room, our teachers focus on developing their basic skills even further through child led and play based approaches. You will find your child doing art, singing songs, learning to eat meals at a table and exploring the play yard.
2 years old
At 2 years old, your child is ready to learn more than ever before. They will focus on using more language, social and emotional skills, and discovering more about their own interests.
You will find your child listening to a story outside, playing in sensory bins and learning how to be a helpful friend. They will be able to begin potty training when ready.
3 years old
Our 3 year old room is a place where your child will make and develop friendships. Here, we begin to participate in the routines that will prepare them for preschool.
You will find them on monthly field trips to Heckrodt Wetland Reserve, doing a scavenger hunt, digging for worms and dancing to their favorite songs at group time.
4-5 years old
This program will be outdoors from 8am-11am in our outdoor classroom year round. Our Explorers room has 3 options: morning 4K, afternoon care, or a combination of both. Our morning 4K is from 8:00am-11:30am, with a lunch included at 11am. We are a pick-up and drop-off location for Neenah and Menasha school districts.
You find your child doing nature collection activities, identifying plants and animals, collaborating with their peers, and taking monthly field trips to Heckrodt Wetland Reserve.
