Once babies start moving, they don’t stop! We keep the surroundings safe so that as mobile toddlers begin to explore and walk they can do so with confidence.
During this time we continue to stimulate the child’s brain and physical-motor skill sets. At this stage in their life, children begin forming words, exploring their surroundings, listening, understanding, developing love & trust and learn to focus their vision. We work with them through storytelling, arts/crafts, music & movement, by giving them lots of attention, teaching them sounds and to express emotions to establish a solid foundation in cognitive- language development and social-emotional development.
Recommendation: The 2D/3D (9am - 11am) drop-off options are perfect for kids younger than 2 years who are just starting drop-off. As they gradually get used to drop-off and grow older, we strongly recommend 3D/5D (9am - 12pm) so their transition to a bigger school is seamless.
We are licensed by NJ Dept. of Children and Families (only small preschool that has this license in Hoboken, NJ). Tuition is eligible for tax deduction.
