West A Street KinderCare
West A Street KinderCare Photo #3 - We have space for our infants to grow and learn. We provide separate infant classrooms depending on your child developmental stage. Our Infant A classroom is for infants 6 weeks to about 6 months, when an infant begins to crawl and become mobile. This allows the infants in this room to have tummy time and to feel free to explore their world without the worry of another infant invading their space. While our Infant B class is meant for those infants who are about 6 months to about 12 months and who are crawling and cruising. They are free to move about their own classroom to explore their world.
West A Street KinderCare Photo #4 - Our toddler classroom is meant to foster independence in children. Toddlers want to try to do it all by themselves. Teachers are there to encourage them by giving them "roots and wings". That means letting them try to feed them selves and wipe their own nose and wash their own hands, but then assist them to make sure the job gets done properly.
West A Street KinderCare Photo #5 - There is a place in each classroom where your child can get lost in a book in story time or join their friends in circle time learning.
West A Street KinderCare Photo #6 - Our prekindergarten classrooms prepare your child for kindergarten. These students start to learn sight words in both English and Spanish. They have a writing journal where they begin to write these words in English and Spanish as well.

West A Street KinderCare Photo #8 - We have two playgrounds. This one is designed to be age appropriate for children ages two and under. Each classroom has 30 minutes for outdoor play every morning and afternoon. This allows children to be able to play and not be crowed. Child directed play is still learning as teachers can make each moment a teachable one.
