Curriculum

At Imagination Crossing, the child comes first. We take pride in not only providing for their physical and emotional needs, but for their developmental needs as well. Our curriculum was handpicked for its balance between both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning. It is our goal to help the children develop the fire and passion for learning that they will carry with them throughout their life. Through partnering with families, our teachers help bridge the worlds of home and school so that they are connected, and the child can continue to explore their love of mathematics, science, social studies, arts, and technology after they step outside our walls.

Age Groups

Infants

Infants

(6 weeks to 18 months)

Parents can rely on our loving, dedicated staff of infant care providers, chosen for their warmth and affectionate personalities. They provide nurturing, age-appropriate stimulation, and lots of love. Our Infant rooms are immaculate, colorful, and well-equipped with toys and equipment similar to what you have at home for your baby and our teachers sit comfortably on gliders while holding, cuddling, and feeding your little ones! Our teachers use tablets equipped with the Brightwheel app to send daily information, updates and pictures to parents and/or grandparents. This new program is a time-saver for all, putting a lot of information into one quick email-reducing extra papers going home each day! It is reassuring to parents when they see a picture of their child’s day, knowing they are safe and well-cared for.

Younger Toddlers

Younger Toddlers

(18 months to 30 months)

Our toddler rooms are designed to be self-contained, with a diaper changing station as well as child-sized potties to begin the potty-training experience. Since Toddlers learn through play and exploration, we give them the space, age-appropriate materials, and stimulation they need to help quench their thirst for exploration. Creative Curriculum gives our Toddlers valuable experiences to help them develop and learn. At this stage, we focus on eye-hand coordination, motor development and problem-solving. Just like in our infant classrooms, our toddler teachers use the Brightwheel program to communicate about each child’s day from the time they arrive up until they are picked up.

Older Toddlers

Older Toddlers

(30 months to 36 months)

The Brightwheel program helps the toddler teachers track their development progress as they work to achieve these goals.
