Infants & Toddlers

“What you teach from birth to three will be what matters to me.”  Pam Schiller, PhD

On our Frog Street curriculum, your baby will explore and experiment with hands-on activities that connect learning to their interests. Your baby’s first year through age three will be filled with developmental milestones such as taking their first steps, laughing, waving “bye-bye” and most importantly developing a wide variety of words.

Frog Street is designed to equip caregivers to foster essential growth and build a strong learning foundation. 


Frog Street helps build a foundation for language by using bright and colorful books and photo cards. 


Frog Street helps little ones form healthy attachments, develop impulse control and enhance social interactions.


Music plays an important role in language building because music helps the brain develop.  Simple songs and games allow little ones to continue to develop into strong future students.

Frog Street curriculum allows for independence, creativity, and a strong social emotional component that builds a foundation of learning.

 In addition, Frog Street assists preschool students with the following

• Problem-solving skills — Starting at this age, children learn not only to react to their surroundings, but to anticipate, decide, and solve the problems in front of them.

• Character development — Emotional, behavioral, and social skills are developed to help your child grow into a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted citizens

• Vocabulary — Preschoolers will learn to build and grow their vocabulary in preparation for Kindergarten and “Big School”.

• Social-emotional activities — During this stage preschoolers are learning how to self-regulate their emotions and interact with their peers and teachers.

• Literacy skills — Learning to read is a fundamental right for every student! Your preschooler will start putting words together through recognition, writing, and pronunciation. 

• Small group instruction — During small group time (usually 2 to 3 preschoolers) children will be introduced to new science projects, math concepts and creative activities.  Preschoolers will also learn to use self-control as well as the importance of taking turns.

Coronavirus (COVID 19) Awareness  & Information

Providing a safe and nurturing environment for the children in our care and for your peace of mind.

Now more than ever, Health and Safety protocol is of utmost importance. We understand you want peace of mind that we are doing the right things to protect your children. We will continue to maintain and expand our safety measures to follow CDC and local health department recommendations. Below is an extensive list of the procedures and services we employ to maintain a safe and healthy environment. 



1.   Screenings: We perform screenings on EVERY person coming into the building. This daily screening adheres to CDC Requirements, affirming that the person entering has had no fever, shortness of breath, cough, etc. 

If a child develops a fever of 99.0 or higher, the student is removed from the classroom and parents are notified immediately. All individuals must remain out of the center for 24 hours from the last known fever or other illnesses and symptoms.

2.   Restricted Building Access: We limit those in the building to teachers, staff and students.  Parents are allowed to enter the front hallway only or office.

3.   Enrollment & Vacation Screening: For any new enrollment or currently enrolled family who is returning after being absent for at least a week or due to illness, we require parents to sign our Enrollment Screener. This affirms they will adhere to the above mentioned daily screenings, and further that they have not traveled to CDC restricted areas in the last 14 days, have no household members currently under quarantine or have not been exposed to a person with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

4.   Handwashing: Students and teachers wash their hands extensively- when they arrive, when they leave, and an endless number of times in between! We have hand sanitizer at the door which everyone uses prior to entering the building until they get to a sink to wash hands with soap and water. We also make sure children wash their hands before they leave the classroom to go home for the day.

5.   Common Touchpoints: A staff member disinfects common touchpoints throughout the building mid-day, every day. This includes handles, knobs, bathrooms, light switches, toilets, sinks, etc. We also do this at the end of the day.



1.   Cleaning Product: We use disinfectant cleaner and sanitizers (Bleach, Lysol, etc.) to clean and reduce germs on surfaces.

2.   Germicidal Lamps: We use ultraviolet germicidal lamps in each classroom to help purify air.  It also removes odors, sterilizes and disinfects surfaces. 


1.   Stable Groups: Stable groups within our school are defined. This means students are only with the same student groups on a regular basis. Students play on a playground with just their classmates and have near zero interaction with students outside of these Stable Groups. These Stable groups generally consist of the classroom and sister classroom where an HVAC unit is shared. Classrooms are separated for all but extreme ends of the day.

2.   Lunch and Snacks: All meals/snacks are served in the classrooms so that exposure to other students is limited. Students’ meals are plated and served individually, rather than family style.

3.   Toy Restrictions: All “soft” furniture, toys, etc. that cannot be easily disinfected have been removed from classrooms. In infant/toddler classrooms, we closely monitor the use of toys and regularly sanitize toys after individual use.

4.   Teacher masks– All staff are required to wear masks throughout the day and students ages 2 and up are encouraged to wear their masks daily.
