LGM Programs

The first years of life are essential to future learning for our children – the first 4 years is when the human brain is most receptive to learning.  There will be more growth in those 4 years than your child will experience during their “likely” 4 years at Harvard.

At Little Gifted Minds, We understand the magnitude of our responsibility.  We want our kids to become excited about what they are learning while they are playing.  We strive to offer play experiences that other settings may not be able to give them.  IPads are often a regular part of our program; we select developmentally appropriate software for the children.  Each child will have the opportunity to explore and challenge him or herself through age appropriate learning apps. Our daily routine includes art, music, and kids’ yoga.  We also offer a different enrichment class to the children each day.  Our enrichment classes include things like science experiments, sensory play, painting, and organic gardening.

Additionally, we offer a nationally recognized research-based preschool curriculum for each age group.  To ensure a realistic implementation of curriculum we keep a very small number of children – we have the capacity of a center but enroll no more than 10-12.

Our program introduces children to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring.  To continuously stay informed of the latest research based practices and processes we facilitate quarterly conferences with top childcare centers across the U.S.

 

Daily Schedule
This schedule is meant to give you an idea of your child’s day. Actual times and activities may vary depending on time of the year, weather, age and temperament of the children. Age appropriate activities are scheduled with the flexibility allowed to respond to the needs of each individual child and their various ages.
