Our Programs

For a child to grow emotionally, socially, and intellectually requires a well-balanced, developmentally appropriate program that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem. We understand that each child is unique, with particular needs and interests. But we also understand the importance of teamwork. Therefore, all of our programs are designed to stimulate curiosity and individuality, while building a strong sense of collaboration and cooperation.

At Care-a-lot, we also understand that children learn best through hands-on, active participation. We offer activity choices with a theme approach to learning that excites and motivates children to become educationally curious.  Our curriculum follows the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and QUALITYstarsNY.

We know that much of your children’s learning takes place during the time they play. Whether it’s singing, romping outdoors, dressing up, telling and reading stories, dancing, building with blocks, or experimenting with paints, paste or puzzles, children learn through every opportunity offered at Care-a-lot.
