We encourage communication and collaboration through a variety of fun and educational games and activities. We also get your little one up and involved with interactive activities like scavenger hunts around the house! But don’t worry, our teachers have a knack for getting them to come back 😉
Our experienced educators provide a predictable routine and designated roles and responsibilities, which is critical for healthy development. Our mission is to answer the disruptions of this “new normal” with predictable learning habits and routines.
Our educators are highly trained professionals with a passion for early childhood development and education. Every Circle Time educator is thoroughly vetted to ensure your child’s safety.
We strive to foster positive social skills and relationship building, which is why your child will be interacting with the same group of no more than 8 children each and every week. Engaging with the same peers in a collaborative environment is a great way to support social development.
We’re a group of passionate and experienced educators who wanted to find a safe, fun and engaging way to continue early childhood development even during a pandemic.
We’ve found the trick to keeping little ones engaged online is to create lessons that are as fun and social as possible! The less it feels like a lesson, the better!
