This program is a very gentle introduction to a small group environment which allows children a brief time away from parents and a chance to get used to alternate caregivers and peers.
The Ladybugs, our 1-year-old program strives to provide each child with a sense of safety, security, and enjoyment as each experiences a new setting outside of his or her home. Daily activities will follow a similar schedule each day and will include a free play time when the children can explore the classroom and play or participate in a craft project, a short gathering time in which songs and movement are featured, playground time, and snack. Every morning The Ladybugs children will have many opportunities to exercise their gross and fine motor skills, explore social relationships, integrate more and more verbal communication into their interactions, and broaden their sensory skills.

After arrival, the children will start the day with circle time; then they will have center time. During center time, the children are free to play throughout the classrooms and participate in the center activities the teachers have prepared for that day. The teachers are always on hand to help the children when needed during center time; however the children themselves direct their play and choose where and how they will explore the classroom and materials.

On a typical day, children will be able to play at the sand or water table, build with large or small blocks, create an art project, paint, play dress-up, and assemble puzzles. Special projects are often made available such as science projects or a cooking project. Then, the children will continue to enhance their gross motor skills, with time spent on the playground.
