Infants and Toddlers are continually learning by discovering and exploring, imitating others and practicing actions and words. While encouraging this basic learning, our teachers also foster your infant's development using the completely individualized and developmentally appropriate “Creative Curriculum for Infants”.

Toddler Learning Program

Learning expands as your child moves into a whole set of developmental milestones. Toddlers begin reading picture books, drawing, painting, climbing, jumping, and really exploring the world.

To supplement and balance these ongoing learning activities, our toddler program utilizes the “Creative Curriculum for Toddlers”. Special projects and activities are posted for you to see. Teacher and Toddlers in Daycare

Socially, while still enjoying lots and lots of holding and hugs, your toddler begins forming friendships and enjoying small group activities. Our Toddlers delight in exploring new social relationships and finding a new balance of independence and dependence.

Toilet training is a “rite of passage”. It will be coordinated with you and will always be approached with sensitivity and encouragement.
 
 

Preschool & Kindergarten in Boulder, CO

Preschoolers and Kindergarteners are inquisitive, eager to learn and anxious to develop independence and competence. “Developmental Practice”, as defined by all state-of-the-art Early Childhood Specialists, emphasizes extensive individualized learning options and opportunities for your preschool or kindergarten child. At The Cottage our individualized programs allow and encourage your child to progress rapidly in their learning and to develop an enthusiasm for learning. Individualized learning also develops your child's independence, confidence, and feelings of success. Extensive learning materials, as well as computers are offered during the individualized learning periods.
 
Teacher directed activities are also important. They will help your child prepare for public school, where the teacher/student ratios seldom allow for individualized programming. During group activities your child will also develop a new set of social skills which differ from those developed during individual or very small group activity times (following directions, taking turns, being sensitive to others needs within a group and more.) Emotional nurturing and social growth, creative exploration, and physical development are balanced at The Cottage with language arts, mathematics, science, and art. Each enhances the others when learned in an integrated program.
