Toddler Program

Teachers provide individualized care and attention to toddlers in a warm and nurturing environment. Teachers work closely with parents to help the toddlers pass smoothly through various developmental stages and daily written reports keep parents informed. Throughout the year the toddlers are acquiring new self-help and social skills and the ability to positively interact in a community setting. The program’s creative curriculum develops fine and gross motor skills, art appreciation, and always includes language-rich activities.

Transitional Kindergarten

ACC’s comprehensive transitional/traditional kindergarten program reflects our philosophy that every child is an eager and capable learner. The educational component of the program meets the required kindergarten standards and also provides a wealth of additional learning experiences.

At the end of the school year, depending on their birth date, children are well prepared to enter either kindergarten or first grade.
