We have regularly scheduled diaper changes, and frequent diaper checks to insure clean, dry bottoms.
We have scheduled bathroom breaks before and after meals and during playtime.
Children are also encouraged to use the bathroom as needed throughout the day.
We are always working on self-help skills with all children. This is the foundation of successful potty training. We then look for signs of readiness, and a desire to use the potty. Opportunity is given to those children who take an interest and have the desire to use the potty.
In my professional experience, if your child is ready, they will "potty train" themselves. If they are not ready, you may experience frustration for everyone, and end up in power struggles and persistent accidents that can easily be avoided by following your child's lead.
We serve three well balanced nutritional meals per day in accordance with
Whole Grain, Fruit and Milk
Grain, Protein, Vegetable, Fruit and Milk

Our Scheduled Nap Period is from 1:00 PM-4:00 PM daily.
Children spend their day running, climbing, riding, learning, and engaging
with their peers. Our Program and the children are in constant motion from the time they arrive until we sit down to lunch at 12:30 PM.
They are more than ready to lie down and easily fall asleep after a busy day and a fantastic lunch!
Children sleep on mats or in Pack-n-Plays depending on their age and individual sleeping needs.
Children who do not sleep the entire nap period rest quietly.
Well-rested children, move through their evening routine with ease and fall asleep at bedtime without resistance.
Over-tired children have difficulty moving through routine and may struggle to fall asleep at bedtime.
