Early Investigator's Place

15 mo. to 3-1/2 yrs.

The toddler environment offers very young children a unique cycle of self-development in a tender atmosphere of special understanding, respect, and support. This environment is unique in that it provides a very specific structure which fulfills the social, physical, emotional, and psychological needs for a very young child. It is an intimate classroom for the children to learn independence and to develop the whole self through learning materials that are self correcting. We introduce a wide range of concepts in a way that even the youngest children can understand.

The Explorers  & The Seekers

The Explorer's Place is a living room for children. Children choose their activities from open shelves with self-correcting materials and work in distinct work areas – on tables or on rugs on the floor.  Over a period of time, the children develop into a "normalized community" working with high concentration and few interruptions.
