Age-Appropriate Child Care Programs
Infants (6 weeks to 18 months)
Infant care at Wonderworks focuses on the individual needs of your baby. Your infant will have plenty of "belly time," as well as exercise and time outdoors. We work with you to develop a nap and meal schedule that best suits your baby's needs and welcome your visits and input.
Toddlers (18 to 36 months)
As your toddler begins to explore, we're there to help along the way. Our teachers' daily schedules are designed to meet your child's needs while also creating time for social interaction, creative play, listening to music and more. Potty training is also introduced, following the lead of your child. Details about your child's day are sent home via a daily note.
Nursery School (ages 3-4)
Preschool is more than child's play - though it may appear to be a large part of our day! Our preschool curriculum is designed to take advantage of children's natural curiosity by focusing on cooperative play and hands-on experiences in music, art, math, science, social studies, drama, language arts, reading, motor development, cooking and creative movement.
Socialization is particularly important for your preschool child, especially as they learn how to play with others. We schedule plenty of "friend" time for the children, from playing outdoors to visiting each classroom learning center. We also help children develop self-help skills, promoting self-confidence and independence. You will receive a monthly newsletter about events and school themes.
Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4-5)
Continuing to focus on hands-on learning, our pre-kindergarten program prepares your child for learning in a classroom setting but with plenty of time to play and explore. Our curriculum encompasses key areas such as reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, as well as art, music, dramatics, cooking motor development and creative movement. We reinforce these concepts during fun field trips such as apple picking and visiting a local farm. We also continue to foster socialization and cooperative play between the children. Details about events, special themes and parent conferences are communicated in a monthly family newsletter.
Before/After School/Summer Programs (Up to age 12)
Our programs offer a nurturing and enriching environment for school-age children before and after school, as well as back-up or emergency care during early release days, school holidays/closing/delays and full-time care during school vacation weeks. We offer engaging, fun activities as well as homework time on a daily basis. Our summer programs offer adventure indoors and out, with supervised access to Crotched Mountain's waterfront, aquatics center and hiking trails.
