Each option provides opportunities for stories, music, poetry, beginning social studies, math, science and language development. All activities are geared to the developmental level of the child and include individualized lessons in the area of a child’s special needs or interests. There are always a variety of quiet activities, active play, directed activities, child initiated activities and in the classroom options, small and large group activities.
