SWIS considers and meets the needs of each student.  This is accomplished through creative curriculum and professional teaching techniques.

 Our enrichment program is based on several developmental domains which include: 

  • gross motor skill development;
  • fine motor skill development;
  • social and emotional development;
  • cognitive development;
  • language development.

            Infants and Toddlers

This age is very important in young children, since they can only communicate with sounds and body language. Knowing that someone will respond to those signals helps your infant develop trust and a feeling of security.  

Your child will then be able to enjoy our safe, stimulating environment, on a schedule determined by his or her individual needs.

Preschoolers

It’s sometimes called the “Terrible Twos,” but that is not a challenge for us!  In this stage of development we   offer lots of opportunities for parallel play. In addition, we   introduce  important social and emotional skills such as sharing and
playing with other children.

Pre Kindergarten and Kindergarten Age

Children are very independent in this stage of development. They like to interact with their peers, and they love to problem-solve. They also like to help others.  Our programs are designed specifically to help foster this age group’s social and educational development.

School Age Children

SWIS offers a variety of indoor and outdoor activities for school age children. If they need to do homework, we can assist them at our “homework station.” If they prefer to play, we have activities to keep them busy and make sure they are having fun.

We offer full-time and part-time care for your child, a siblings discount, and pick up service for students   from nearby elementary schools who need after-school care.

We can accommodate any parent schedule. In addition to our weekday 7AM to 6 PM hours, we offer extended, overnight and weekend care. We can even design a schedule just for you.
