Daycare

M-F 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM
Ages 6 weeks to 3yrs

Here at Mt. Elizabeth Academy we offer a full day daycare program for children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old. We prepare our daycare students to excel as young leaders of tomorrow, combining our custom-designed curriculum with first class childcare. It is our belief that learning through play, experience, exploring, and creating are the work of the child and should be encouraged and cultivated. An emphasis on communication with parents allows us to understand how to best serve each child, and thus we can provide the best possible care for our students. We utilize the most modern parent communication system (Brightwheel) for communicating with parents. This allows you to follow your child through the day, and get regular updates about meals, naps, diaper changes, and activities via photos and videos (only accessible to approved parents and caregivers).


Full Day Daycare Options By Age


Infants

Ages 6 weeks to 14 months

Here at Mt. Elizabeth Academy, our babies are cared for by loving, enthusiastic, and nurturing caregivers in a safe, soothing, and happy environment. Their daily needs are addressed with smiles and frequent eye contact with their teachers. Diaper changes, feedings, rest time, and playtime happen with loving interaction between baby and caregiver. Our infant rooms focus on:

  • Songs & Sign Language
  • Oral Language
  • Reading
  • Motor Skills
  • Sensory Skills
  • Socialization

Toddler I

Ages 1yr-2yrs (Students must be walking)

At Mt. Elizabeth Academy, our toddler program nurtures the “I can do it!” mindset, while also helping toddlers understand their relationship to the environment and peers around them. Our Toddler I class focuses on:

  • Songs & Sign Language
  • Oral Language
  • Reading
  • Motor Skills
  • Sensory Skills
  • Socialization
  • Independence

In the Toddler I Classroom the children are introduced to a class routine. This allows for predictability and a feeling of security among the toddlers. The toddlers are nurtured and comforted throughout the day while engaging in meaningful developmentally-appropriate learning. Introduction of colors, letters, numbers, and shapes help enhance the curricular learning of the children. Our learning approach for toddlers includes a balance of child-directed and teacher-initiated opportunities to guide their exploration of new themes, skills, routines, and language. Their daily needs are addressed with sign language, smiles and age appropriate directions. Diaper changes, feedings, rest time, and playtime happen with loving interaction between the toddler and the teacher.


Toddler II

Ages 2yr-3yrs

At Mt. Elizabeth Academy, the Toddler II Classroom invites older toddlers to a more structured class routine. This allows them to develop an understanding of their day, predictability, and a feeling of security as well as helping to enhance their learning and attention. The Toddler II’s enjoy circle time activities including calendar, weather, counting, story time, and songs. The age-appropriate activities in this classroom promote taking turns, cooperating, sharing, and expressing feelings in an appropriate manner. We continue teaching subjects such as colors, letters, numbers, shapes, and vocabulary to enhance the curricular learning of the children. Our learning approach for toddlers includes a balance of child-directed and teacher-initiated opportunities to guide their exploration of new themes, skills, routines, and language. All Toddler II’s also engage in Spanish lessons and songs. In every classroom, our approach is customized for each individual child across four key areas:

  • Appreciation
  • Independence
  • Cooperation
  • Respect

Diaper changes and/or potty training, feedings, rest time, and playtime happen with loving interaction between the toddler and the teacher. Your child’s happiness and comfort is our first priority as we provide you with a safe and secure program.
