Our Childcare Programs

At The Little Gnome, we divide our childcare rooms by age groups so your children can socialize with kids their age. By providing a supportive environment, we make sure each child receives exactly what they need.

6 weeks - 6 months

The infant rooms are designed for a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. There are couches and rockers available for teachers and parents to use for feeding and cuddling. Babies explore and play with a variety of soft toys and equipment.

6 months - 16 months

Swings and bouncy seats with activity bars for older infants are used for stimulation and a change of scenery. When babies can sit up, they may be taken for outside walks in a stroller when the weather permits.

16 months - 24 months

We provide fun learning experiences that encourage your young toddler to explore their environment and interact with peers and teachers. Children are introduced to different types of learning based on their individual needs and interests.

 

24 months - 36 months

When your child is all over the place, they're discovering their world. Toddlers learn best in safe, loving places where they can explore, in their own way. The activities for this age group are built around toddlers' limitless curiosity and their natural desire to push boundaries.

3 year olds (preschool)

All of our classrooms are designed with learning centers, which give children the opportunity to play by themselves or in groups.  The classroom itself is a prepared environment designed to provide children with positive experiences.

4 - 5 year olds (preschool)

Our preschool helps kids socialize with other children their age and teachers, learn the basics of the alphabet, numbers, shapes, etc, and helps them be prepared for next year at Kindergarten.

 

6 years - 12 years

Our after-school and summer care will be a load of fun for kids of all ages! No matter what your child needs, each of our programs will provide the support and tools necessary for optimal growth.
