WELCOME TO CATERPILLAR CORNER!
We believe a child’s early experiences enrich and stimulate future growth. Children deserve to be treated and respected as individuals in an environment that welcomes reason, exploration, question, and imagination. The active learning, or “hands-on” approach, is developmentally appropriate for all children. We respect each child’s need for love, security, acceptance, warmth, and stimulation.
We believe educational achievement matters and every student is unique. Our goal is to work closely with each child’s family to access child care and academic needs and to personalize services to increase social and educational development in the pursuit of excellence.
BEFORE AND AFTER CARE
We understand that your family’s need for safe, supervised care extends well into your child’s elementary school years. Caterpillar Corner provides an educational and fun recreation program, supervised by qualified adults. Students enjoy a balance of planned activities (arts and crafts, games, homework hour) and time to unwind (indoor/outdoor play, reading, drawing). When your school ager attends for a full day, field trips and special events add to the fun.
programs for every age
Caterpillar Corner parent partnerships begins in our Infant room, where our dedicated caregivers and teachers’ partner with you to create an individualized care plan for your child. Infant care requires specialized attention. Caterpillar Corner believes in keeping quality and children first.
When children learn to walk, they are called toddlers. The toddler stage is very important in a child’s life. It is the time between infancy and childhood when a child learns and grows in many ways. With each stage or skill the child masters, a new stage begins. This growth is different for each child.
The preschool years are an exciting time for young children. When they were infants, they developed a trust of their caregivers. As toddlers, they began to establish some independence. Now, as preschoolers, they use this trust and independence to actively explore new forms of play and new environments.
