Lily’s Playground Child Care Program provides a cognitively based curriculum for children from 3 months to 4 years of age. We provide a home like environment where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace.
Our program incorporates many aspects of the popular curriculums followed by early childhood education programs, including the Creative Curriculum, Montessori, Waldorf, and the Reggio Emilia approach. We use research and evidence based practices to develop an environment, lesson plans and experiences that support children through their development, regardless of their age, abilities or background.
In addition to the social, emotional, physical, and sensory motor skills, we focus on cognitive development of the children in our program, with the strong emphasis on their critical thinking skills.
Our lesson and activity plans, routines, experiences and environment help us to ensure that the children in our program are healthy, happy, and enter kindergarten with the foundation they need to be successful.
