We maintain an open-door policy, flexibility, and security for the families who trust us with their most precious miracles.

Preschool and Pre-K
Our Preschool and Pre-K programs are centered on Developmental Appropriate Practice. An intensification of structure is present with the help of visual routines and daily rituals. Along with the standard learning centers (dramatic play, science, blocks, etc.), a daily dose of open ended art and sensory experiences are included. Opportunities to learn about shapes and mathematical concepts enrich the curriculum and provide new challenges. Caregivers are ready to increase or decrease the difficulty of activities based on each child’s ability. The most significant priority, however, is the focus on Social Emotional health and education. The children learn how to communicate wants and needs, share attention and focus, and use self-regulation tools to disengage the stress response. The emphasis placed on these primary strategies will help them throughout their educational journey, and prepare them to be lifelong learners.
Young Wonders is pleased to provide a fun and inviting summer program for ages 5yrs-12yrs. Our summer program will provide engaging and active experiences, allowing your child to recharge their batteries over the summer through fun and new friendships! The summer program will offer creative art, science, sensory, cooking, and excursion experiences. Our summer program is small and close-knit, offering plenty of personal attention and curriculum catered to your child’s interests. Young Wonders also offers an afterschool program during the school year with similar offerings as our summer program with the addition of homework help.
