Enep'ut enrolls children from 2 months to 12-years-old

Infant and Toddlers: 2 months to 3 years

Every child in this group receives personal attention from daycare teachers for diapering, cuddling, eating, singing, finger plays, and more. As always, we also welcome your input and participation in developing the best schedule and curriculum for your child. We provide a natural and fun learning environment with goals in social and emotional development, physical development, cognitive development, and language development.

One of the methods we include in our unique curriculum involves the Educaring® Approach which shows that, when allowed to develop in their own way and time, infant children have the ability to discover, manifest, and inspire the best in themselves and others. We incorporate Magda Gerber’s ten key principles of childcare that encourage recognition for the child, involving them and respecting them as individuals. We structure and adapt our curriculum to best suit the individual needs of the child.

Preschool: 2.5-3 years old to kindergarten

Through our many years of experience, we have found there isn’t just one best methodology for how children should learn, and it is for this reason that our unique curriculum takes parts from several different approaches at once, including student-centered curriculums like the Reggio Emilia approach, which is an educational philosophy utilizing self-directed, exploratory learning in relationship-driven environments.

We also incorporate constructivist curriculum, Emergent curriculum, and Montessori Education. In our preschool room, we have learning centers throughout the classroom. Each child can work at their own pace and ability level with learning centers designed to encourage creativity and imagination. Children learn most effectively by hands-on experience, and we encourage them to make decisions, solve problems, and learn to share graciously. We are focused on the individual emotional and social growth of each child.

After School & Summer Programs

As with all other classes and childcare, we customize the curriculum to the needs of each of these children, up to twelve years of age. Our school-age classes and programs are a balance between learning and socializing, with indoor and outdoor activities available as needed. Need some place for your child to go after school? When your child comes to us for after-school childcare, they can find a quiet area for homework (we can even help out if needed), they can choose one of our fun activities (or some of their own), or relax and socialize with friends.

When they come to us before school, it can give you peace of mind in knowing they are safe, and prepared. We also offer a summer program that is for school age and preschool children that is more structured and offers many fun, challenging learning opportunity.
