Little Urbanites offers a child-centered, play-based approach that offers the balance of a daily structure and periods of open-ended free play in a thoughtful environment of high quality play materials.


Little Urbanites offers a strong emphases on social emotional development with the goal that children leave our program with a strong sense of self, understanding of community and ability to communicate effectively with others. We strongly believe that strong self identity and communication skills are the root of future educational (and life) success.

Routine

Though we value "free play", we follow a daily routine that provides children a great sense of security as they anticipate and participate in the predictable progress of our day.

Our daily routine includes opportunities for children to take care of their classroom, school materials and personal belongings in a way that fosters a sense of connection and responsibility.

Food

Eating at school offers children an opportunity to be exposed to new foods and see the variety of things that other people eat. Meals are also a wonderful time for rich conversation and connection with the group.

We provide a nutritious morning and afternoon snack, and children bring a pack lunches. We promote  low sugar foods at school and encourage alternatives to high sugar items for school lunches and group celebrations.
