Days at Greenway begin and end with children of all ages engaging in supervised free play together. By 9 a.m. the children have retired to their individual classrooms to begin the day’s curriculum with their teachers. We have separate rooms for the infants (8 weeks to 18 months), toddlers (18 months to 2 years), twos (2 year olds) and pre-schoolers (3 to 5 year olds). Our curriculum focuses at the earlier ages on physical development and achieving age-appropriate milestones. Starting with twos, we begin to introduce academic topics such as letters, numbers, colors and shapes. However, at this age children learn primarily through play, so the day is also filled with various group activities, crafts, and playing outdoors or going on walks.
We celebrate special occasions throughout the year from Super Bowl Friday and Valentine’s Day to the antics of the leprechaun in March, an Easter egg hunt in April, water play twice a week during the summer months, a picnic to celebrate the end of summer, a visit to the pumpkin patch in the fall, a Halloween parade, Thanksgiving, and even a visit from Santa in December. From Mother’s Day breakfast to Back to School night to that special moment when your pre-schooler finally graduates and goes off to kindergarten, Greenway’s schedule is packed with ways for parents to come and interact with their children.
