Child Care That Sparks Curiosity, Interest and Independence

Inventors. Problem-solvers. Discoverers. Dreamers. Children 24 to 36 months are opening their eyes to the larger world around them and taking an active role in it. They learn as they take things apart, put them together and ask lots and lots of questions. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities to encourage social interaction and mastery of cognitive skills. At Kid's Harbor, our educational daycare philosophy encourages inquisitive development and gives children the guidance and tools they need to explore and learn within a comfortable, secure environment.

  • Motor Skill Development — outdoor games, dancing, movement.
  • Language Development — recognizing and forming letters, story time, speech.
  • Sensory Development — textures, understanding the senses, descriptive activities.
  • Imaginative Development — arts and crafts, dramatic play, storytelling.
  • Social Development — large- and small-group activities, sharing, politeness.

Daycare That Encourages Toddlers to Learn About the World around Them

As they enter their third year, children become more and more curious. It’s that natural sense of curiosity that we at Kid's Harbor use to teach them to learn and grow. Within our home-like classrooms, your older toddler is free to be anything from an artist to an engineer. Playing pretend, learning games, participating in hands-on activities — these are just a few of the ways we keep kids engaged. But all these games and activities are done for a reason, encouraging development in a number of key areas. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate small group interactions to work closely with your child to assure mastery of developmental tasks. Your child will also participate in large group activities to explore concepts and enjoy early literacy experiences.

  • Motor Skill Development — hands-on activities, outdoor play, tossing, catching.
  • Cognitive Development — puzzles, games, recognizing shapes, numbers, colors.
  • Language Development — reading, recognizing and forming letters, storytelling.
  • Artistic Development — art projects, construction projects, dramatic play.

Our Powerful Beginnings educational child care curriculum encourages kids’ natural curiosity and willingness to try new things, so children discover the ways that they learn best. So in addition to basic skills, your child learns about self-direction, self-reliance and self-esteem.
