The Lilypad Garden & Farm Schools offer multiple program options to accommodate the needs of our working parents. Regular hours are 6:30 am to 6:30 pm Monday-Friday. We also offer part-time, 2-3 day programs.
We offer times for whole group and individualized instruction, outside play, crafts, stories, and naps appropriate to the child's age, interests, and abilities. We will provide your child with tender loving care, understanding, patience, and guidance. We do many arts and crafts where the focus is the process, not the product. We provide hands on, play based curriculum for all ages; infants-1st grade. Whether your child is 6 weeks old or 6 years old, we provide purposeful activities designed to help your child achieve their next developmental objective.
At The Lilypad, we incorporate music and movement throughout the day. Music stimulates the mind and spirit, creating a pleasurable learning environment. Enrichment activities such as Spanish class, Engineering, and Technology classes are incorporated into the weekly schedule as well.
Free play is an important part of a child's early years. It is here that they learn social skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. This is a very integral part of their day. Through positive guidance, we help the children learn appropriate strategies to communicate their emotions and interact appropriately with their peers and adults.
