Infants (Teddies) 6 weeks through approximately 12 months:
In the Infant Program, the babies are kept in a separate environment in an attempt to help keep them as healthy and safe as possible. Each baby is cared for based on an individual schedule, including feeding and sleeping. Parents must provide bottles, formula, and food for their baby, as well as diapers, a change of clothes, and a favorite blanket or toy. We provide bedding, burp cloths, bibs, colorful toys, books, and music.
Waddlers (Ladybugs) Approximately 12 months through 18 months:
Waddlers is a special name given to our youngest toddler group; these children are mobile pre-toddlers who need a well-planned environment with developmentally appropriate toys and stimulation. During the transition into the Waddler room, children are weaned off bottles and transitioned to taking one nap per day. We ask that parents provide finger foods as children are encouraged to feed themselves, receiving help when needed. During a formal two week transition period, we work towards this goal individually with each child.
Toddlers (Snails and Hunnybees) Approximately 18 months through 30 months:
In our Toddler development program, our staff introduces your child to self-help skills and developmentally appropriate activities such as painting, music, movement, socialization, and experimenting with various sensory activities. You will receive a written account of your child's day.
In general, all of our Toddlers follow a Preschool curriculum schedule that ensures each day be spent on developmentally appropriate and stimulating activities. While we usually follow a routine, we also take into consideration the moods of the children on any given day.
Young Preschool and Preschool (Kangaroos and Monkeys) 2.5 years through approximately 4 years:
Beginning in September of each year, Country Village offers preschool. The teacher/student ratio for our preschoolers is 1:10. The preschool program begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. Our preschoolers engage in a variety of activities to build experiences, language skills, counting and patterning, and social awareness.
Pre-Kindergarten (Penguins and Caterpillars) Must be 4 years before September 1
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is designed to help children be successful, independent, confident learners. We work closely with the Mercer Island School District to best prepare our students to not only be successful in Kindergarten, but to become life-long learners with a love of school. Our experienced, educated Pre-K teaching staff help children by providing guided learning experiences in preparation for their future academic and social endeavors.
