At Wonders Early Learning + Extended Day, infants and toddlers are respected and responded to as individuals. Infants are not expected to conform to a set schedule; instead their caregivers use flexible schedules for feeding, diapering, sleeping, and playing to meet each infant’s needs. As the toddlers’ desire for independence increases, we provide them with more and more opportunities to make choices and to interact with their surroundings.
Preschoolers’ learning is thoughtfully and intentionally supported in the areas of language arts, mathematical thinking, science, social studies, the arts, motor skills, and social-emotional learning. Wonders Early Learning + Extended Day believes that children should learn skills to help them take care of themselves and each other. Activities are based on the premise that children learn by doing. We believe that your child will discover and learn by making the decisions needed to work through an activity, rather than being told exactly how to accomplish a task. Children will discover many individual approaches to accomplish a task. We support the interests of each child, helping him or her grow in his or her social-emotional and cognitive skill development through hands-on experimentation with materials and concepts.
For over 45 years, Wonders Early Learning + Extended Day has been providing a safe and nurturing learning environment parents can trust and depend upon. We are a nonprofit provider of accredited early childhood education, before and after school care, and summer camp with flexible programs for children ages 2 months through 6th grade. We are committed to equity in our teaching practices and organizational policies and are proud to be an integral part of the community.
