Infant exploring

Infant Program


Children, especially infants, learn through movement and exploration, the

goal of our infant program is to provide your child with the necessary

freedom to do both.  Rocket Academy ELC staff provide the infants with materials and

guidance that develop and refine the skills needed to achieve the next stage

of their development, such as grasping, kicking, crawling, talking and other

gross and fine motor skills.  Our Infant program is designed for children aged

6 weeks to 18 months.  The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 3 with a group size

of 6 children which allows for each child’s needs to be quickly responded to

and met. Room staffed by one Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and one Early Childhood Education Assistant.   Anticipated expansion to 9 infants expected soon.
Toddler exploring

Toddler 1 Program


During the toddler stage of development, children have a strong desire to be independent and exercise their decision making skills. Providing opportunities for children to do both are key elements in our Toddler Room. At Rocket Academy ELC we encourage toddlers entering this environment to take an active role in caring for themselves by putting away their belongings, choosing which activity they do, tiding up after themselves and deciding whether to sing songs or hear stories. Our Toddler program is designed for children aged 18 to 30 months. The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 5 with a group size of 10 children which allows for both small and large group activities.   Room staffed by one Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and one Early Childhood Education Assistant.

The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 5 with a group size of 14 children.  Room staffed by two Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and one Early Childhood Education Assistant. 

Toddlers at play

Preschool 1 Program


Our Preschool Program incorporates the freedom of exploration and movement found in the infant room with the drive for independence and decision making found in the toddler room, and supports the growing intellect of the child.  Rocket Academy ELC recognizes that literacy and numeracy skills are fundamental building blocks for success in school and in life. They are priorities throughout a child’s education, involving every teacher, every parent and every student, beginning before he or she enters school. Therefore, we have designed the Preschool Program to introduce these concepts to your developing preschooler.  Our Preschool Program is designed for children 2½ to 4 years of age.  The teacher to child ratio is 1 to 8 with a group size of 24 children which allows for both small and large group activities.  Room staffed by two Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and one Early Childhood Education Assistant.
