Q: Does my child need to be potty trained? A: No
Q: Do you provide meals? A: We provide a light snack consisting of organic fruits and vegetables, and occasionally grains. Your child will need to bring a lunch.

Q: Are you a year round school? A: Yes. Our summer “camp” is part of our program, but optional. More Info here.
Q: Do you have an inter-generational program in place? A: Yes! We interact with our “Grandfriends” once a week on Tuesdays. We go to their facility across the parking lot. Our Grandfriends will occasionally drop by to say hello or visit with the children.
Q: Does my child need to be immunized? A: No, but Colorado State requires your signature on an immunization card. Our small class, and short hours help prevent DM children from getting caught up in the epidemics that will sometimes run through large day care centers.
Q: What is the Reggio Emilia approach? A: The city Reggio Emilia in Italy is recognized worldwide for its innovative approach to education: its name comes from the city itself. The keyword of this method is to foster education from the tender age, promoting the best possible integration among children’s languages which, as Loris Malaguzzi said, are a hundred or more. In this approach, there is a belief that children have rights and should be given opportunities to develop their potential. Children are believed “knowledge bearers”, so they are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas about everything they do during the day. More info here. SOURCE INFO HERE
