Toddlers are just beginning to test their influence and control. At this age, children are making huge strides, and our program provides lots of guidance along with the independence they crave. We balance individual attention with group activities and ensure that your toddler is using all that energy in productive ways. From trying all the playground equipment to pouring cereal, we give toddlers plenty of opportunities to investigate, explore and play.
Your child is transitioning from a toddler to a preschool student therefore our curriculum builds on your child’s cognitive, social and emotional needs in preparation for the kindergarten classroom. Lessons are designed to ensure that children grasp concepts in ways that are most meaningful to them.
Our VPK program is designed to work hand and hand with the Early Learning Coalition and follows the five domains developed by the Department of Education. At Hart 2 Hart Academy we go above and beyond the normal standards to ensure your child not only learns the alphabet and phonics but learns to put them together to begin the early stages of reading. We teach numbers and rote counting but go a step further to educate the child on basic math skills. We also realize that technology plays an important role in today’s society, therefore we have also enhanced our program to include basic computer and tablet skills. The teachers work with the children to ensure their easy transition to kindergarten through social skills and academic readiness. We encourage parent participation at all levels and provide monthly reports to keep parents informed on their progress.
Hart 2 Hart Academy offers an exceptional before and after-school program that combines guidance and security with independent exploration to give school age children the freedom and structure they need. The afternoon offers a variety of activities ranging from learning centers, organized outdoor games to homework time. During the summer months, we offer a multitude of field trips and many organized events to keep our school aged children actively engaged. We currently provide transportation to and from the following schools: Pinemount Elementary and West Side Elementary.
