Our infant staff provide a loving and nurturing environment, as they guide your child through developmental milestones. The classroom has a variety of age appropriate toys and equipment. As your child gets older, more skills are added to their daily routine.
Our toddler teachers plan a variety of activities to help the children learn about the world around them. They begin more structured activities that include circle time, music and movement.
As the children approach 24 months old, more language and social skills are added to the curriculum as well as development of fine and large motor skills.
Program for Two-Year-Olds
Our staff introduces the children to more routine and structure in the daily activities. The curriculum allows the development of language, math and social skills. In addition, the children will learn to enhance their gross and motor skills, and the ability to perform tasks independently.
Program for Three-Year-Olds
Our teachers provide a higher level of learning. The curriculum includes activities to enhance communication and language skills, including recognizing letters and sounds. The daily lessons will focus on mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. We offer opportunities for the children to gain respect for others, self confidence, patience and sharing.

A word from one of our parents:
"My kids have been with the Before and After Care Program for three years now. I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful convenience it is for our family. There aren't many programs that cover the kids on "surprise" school closures as we had this week (Hurricane consequences), and Padonia has been a real life saver for our family. It would have been nearly impossible to manage work and the kids this week without you." -Liz S.
