Welcome to Growing Up!
Growing Up is a year long Early Childhood Education program specifically designed for the active and social 2 year old. The comfortable home setting provides a small group of children a secure place to enjoy some of their first experiences of learning and playing together as a group.

A balance of indoor and outdoor play is combined to ensure the development of both fine motor and gross motor skills. Individual learning is recognized as an important part of our nature and time is given for the development of the self. Group activities come together casually to create social relationships with interdependent thinking, problem solving and sillyness.

The child centered philosophy builds the daily activities on the interests and ideas of the children. A planned day is always a principal of the program that may be interrupted by spontaneous fun that will take us on an adventure to enjoy the development of the moment.

Growing Up provides an opportunity for little ones to learn and understand social situations that require expression of feelings and the nurturing of goodness within the group. As a mother and educator I find that laughter is the primary care giver in the relationship of children and helps to ensure the growth of the mind, body and spirit. It is of utmost importance to provide a good time to the children in my care.
