Hour Kids uses The Creative Curriculum and it is carried out by our highly qualified teachers in each classroom. The Creative Curriculum is designed to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of young children. Learning concepts are applied through intentional teaching. The Creative Curriculum covers the following domains: pretend play, self-awareness, mathematics, pre-literacy/language development, science, art, and music exploration.
In addition to structured learning we schedule free-play through out the day in each classroom, We also have a fenced playground outside, as well as an indoor large muscle room.
Infants will spend their time in a clean, well maintained classroom designed for maximum supervision and safety. Teachers will provide developmentally appropriate educational experiences to meet the infants' many needs. Infants will be cared for in a small group with individualized attention. We strive to provide excellent communication about your child's time with us.

This is a daily or weekly learning experience with no commitment required. We offer age-appropriate educational programming to children between 3-4 years old. In Preschool Practice your child will be present for our morning large group where we read, sing and dance together, followed by a small group where we do some hands-on learning with pre-literacy and pre-math manipulatives, and other guided learning activities. We round off the experience with "choice time". Choice time is free play; a play time essential to explore the classroom toys and learn how to use materials while having guidance-based interactions with the teachers. In additional to formal learning, the free play time allows your child to learn and navigate social emotional concepts and how to prepare for other formal Preschool settings. Teachers will help guide your child through sharing, expressing themselves, taking turns and being a good friend in a classroom setting. Preschool Practice is most beneficial for children that will be attending school district preschool programs, or children that may need extra socialization before Kindergarten.
