OUR PROGRAMS

TODDLERS & TWOS

Our State-of-the-art Shelley Family Learning Center is a home away from home for our youngest children ages 12 months through almost three years old.

HALBERSTEIN INFANT TODDLER PROGRAM

Pre-Toddlers (ages 12 – 18 months), and Toddlers  (ages 18 – 24 months), will experience this first step in their school journey in our age-appropriate classrooms.  Our sensitive, experienced and well-trained staff is here to guide, educate and nurture the entire family during these early and important months of your child’s development.

WHITEBOOK FAMILY BRIGHT BEGINNINGS PROGRAM FOR “TERRIFIC TWOS” 

Terrific Two-Year-Olds are a lively group of creative explorers, always ready to learn and experience new things each and every day.  Our staff and our age-appropriate curriculum activities are designed to stimulate the senses and help advance children’s development in the areas of social-emotional skills, language skills, fine and gross motor skills and cognitive skills.  Step-by-step your child will learn to be on his/her own and will develop appreciation for learning.

Potty training is optional and our teachers will work with the family to guide children when they are ready for potty training


PRE-K2, PRE-K3 AND JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN

In this setting, your toddler, two and  pre-schooler will take part in a high quality learning experience in an age appropriate classroom. Children are exposed to exciting and stimulating curricular activities in a warm and nurturing environment. Children are guided and encouraged to practice pro social skills and acquire age appropriate cognitive skills and information. When children are ready,  Pre-Reading and Pre-Math skills are presented using the latest research based materials. Each and every child in our program is challenged as an individual to become an active learner for life.

JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN:

Children who are 4 years old by September 1st, are eligible for our outstanding Junior Kindergarten program.  The goal of our Jr. Kindergarten is to prepare children for the demands of kindergarten and beyond, using our proven, developmental curriculum activities and materials.  Our experienced and specially trained Jr. Kindergarten staff are there to guide every child on their own journey towards literacy, and supported by our curriculum specialist.

Children who graduate from our Jr. K are consistently at the top of their Kindergarten class, and in many cases are welcomed in all gifted programs.


   ***Please note that in grouping the children, we respect the Miami Dade County cut off date of September 1st.
