Infant & Toddler (6 weeks to 3 years)

In the Metro Center infant and toddler classrooms, the focus is on sensory experiment and development. This is the first step in helping infants grow into curious children. We also begin working on social and emotional development in the infant room. Our individualized interactions with infants readies them for future exploration and education.

Pre-School (3 years to 5 years)

Pre-School students at Metro Center will grow empathy and understanding as they learn to socialize with others, solve problems, and develop self-confidence. Students continue to expand their social and emotional development. Along the way they also develop better listening, language and cognitive skills in preparation for kindergarten.
