Self-Awareness

The emphasis of our Tweenie and Trainee curriculum is to enhance the social-emotional, physical and language development of your child. We will also concentrate on sensory awareness and discovering the world around them. Our focus is on positive interactions with your child and how our teachers foster the children’s development with their words, actions and gestures. These positive interactions help your child grow and develop in a nurturing and loving environment.
