My Little Gan’s

  Sprouting Seeds Curriculum
The Sprouting Seeds Program is offered for children
between the ages of 6 and 15 months of age. This Program is offered Monday – Thursday between 7 a.m. – 7 p.m and Fridays (and eve of Jewish holidays), between 7 am and candle-lighting.

    Our Sprouting Seeds Program was developed with careful consideration to our little learners’ primary care needs as well as their cognitive, social and physical development. 

  Our Daily Schedule includes opportunities for your infant to explore  language experiences and music & movement opportunities.

SAMPLE DAILY SCHEDULE 

Our Program allows infants to determine their own feeding, napping and play schedules as there is no such thing as a “typical day” in an infant classroom.  We will guide each child towards a more structured and organized schedule as they begin to mature.
