What We Offer

Infant/Toddler Curriculum

We are proud to introduce you to our infant/toddler room. The information in the next few paragraphs will give you a brief overview of our staff and our approach to childcare. Foremost, our teachers are doing what they love to do; which is teaching and caring for children!

Explorers room has close to 20 years experience working with children in a childcare setting. They take their job seriously and generously share their gift of teaching to provide a wonderful place for your children to learn and grow. Upon entering you will see happy and content babies and toddlers who play, explore and listen to stories and music. While surrounded in a loving, nurturing and safe environment your child will begin to communicate and become more mobile.

Secondly, our attention does not stop at your children. We realize that you, as well as your child, need to feel comfortable and have trust in the childcare setting that you choose. Our goal is to make sure that when you leave your child with us, you’re confident that he/she is in warm capable hands. After all, a child who is safe, happy and loved will adapt to a new environment more easily and thrive in their discovery of learning. We believe communication is the key for a successful day for your child as well as our staff so we strongly encourage open lines of communication with you! We request that you keep us informed of anything that may affect your child while they are in our care. In turn, by paying close attention to your child, we can notify you of any changes or concerns that may arise and as well as any progress your child makes.


Social and Emotional Development:

As we hold and talk to your child, he/she learns to focus on faces, respond to voices and smile when someone smiles at them. Your child develops fine and gross motor movements through specific activities designed and tailored to him/her. They will also benefit from social interaction with other children


We will talk, sing and read to your child throughout the day and encourage them to respond. Through this communication, your child will start to make sounds, repeat the same sound and laugh out loud. You will see the progress your child makes, and eventually your child will be using words and gestures to effectively communicate his/her needs.

Pre K Curriculum

At Kidz Space we utilize a developmental curriculum that was custom designed by our curriculum director and the head teacher in each classroom.  Using a multi-modal approach (also known as differentiated instruction), our teachers can present activities to your children in the most effective way for maximum growth.  This allows for your child to grow and learn according to their natural developmental process instead of being constrained by birth date.
