Infant Rooms

We have one infant room at our New Albany site and three infant classrooms at our Jeffersonville location. Our infant rooms are where our children are provided more individualized and personal care based on their developmental needs.

Our teachers have a weekly lesson plan based off The Creative Curriculum that consists of new indoor and outdoor learning experiences, family involvement activities, baby sign language, and accommodations for routines and schedules.

The infant room class has a weekly individualization sheet to offer the best learning experiences for our infants that reflect their development, and teachers complete daily observation logs to help the teachers and families work on specific goals set for each child.

The Creative Curriculum learning centers emerge in our toddler and 2-year old rooms as the children explore the world around them. Their teachers give them daily activities to work on language development, mathematical and science concepts, engagement in creative art and music, and much more!

Our bi-weekly lesson plans encourage family involvement, new learning experiences based on the children’s interests, and plenty of opportunities for the students to grow cognitively, social-emotionally, and physically.

Pre-School Room

pre-school-roomOur New Albany location has a preschool room to educate 2 1/2-year olds, and a Pre-K classroom to accommodate our 3-, 4 -and 5-year olds. Jeffersonville KCA has separate classrooms for 3-, 4-, and 5- year olds.

These classes learn through hands-on-experiences by exploring in our 10 learning centers. Our teachers guide children by being facilitators of language development, and helping our children explore concepts through open-ended questions and discussion.

Teachers complete lesson plans bi-weekly based on the children’s interests and knowledge that build on their strengths in their cognitive and physical development. Continual assessments, observations, and daily reports are shared with our families to help bridge the gap that is commonly found between schools and home. Family involvement strongly encouraged, and is one of the keys to the success of our program.

Our preschoolers learn more than just the abc’s and 123’s. They are given the life-long learning experiences and foundations they need to transition smoothly into kindergarten and beyond.
