Welcome to Hazel Park

Caring for children ages six weeks to five years.

 

 


 

Infant

We focus on practical life skills such as drinking from a cup and using a spoon, physical milestones such as sitting up, crawling and walking, and introducing sign language for communicating.

Young Toddler

Our learning is centered around our ABCs, shapes, colors, counting and puzzle work while also developing friendships through playing, singing, reading, growing together and having fun.

Toddler

We are actively engaged in art projects, circle time for songs and stories, and individual conversations, all while focusing on learning concepts, language skills, letters, numbers, shapes and colors.

Preschool

We focus on the four developmental areas: physical, cognitive, social and emotional. We also have activities that include a variety of materials, are both quiet and active, and are both teacher directed and child initiated.
