What will my toddler do in the program?
The program is designed to create a safe environment where your toddler is encouraged to learn, grow and explore, using all the senses. To enable this wonderful time of growth in toddlers, our teacher provides numerous sensory experiences in each class.

What will my child learn in the morning preschool program?
This program focuses on socialization and play. The preschool years are a critical time for children to learn skills such as compromise, respect, negotiation, problem-solving, empathy and self-regulation. Play nourishes every aspect of the child’s development, and paves the way for learning. It forms the foundation of intellectual, social, physical and emotional skills necessary for success in school and in life. The curriculum also includes opportunities to strengthen fine and gross motor skills, sensory and science opportunities, language, math, creative art and dramatic play.

What will my child learn at SPARK?
The foundation of the program is learning through play and exploration. Children will discover letters, numbers, science and music through fun, hands-on activities. Your child will learn to listen to instructions and follow them, learn self-help skills, fine motor skills (hold a pencil, cut with scissors), and learn how to socialize, get along with other children, and self-regulate. The focus of the program is on fostering curiosity and a life-long love of learning. We use the Second Step program to teach self-regulation and executive-function skills that help children learn to manage their feelings, make friends and solve problems.
