Baby Fox

Our high quality early learning program provides children opportunities to develop and explore all domains of developmentally-appropriate practice. Children in our program ARE creating, moving, singing, discussing, observing, reading and playing. At BFA children are NOT expected to sit still and be quiet. They won’t be doing worksheets, workbooks or drill & kill flashcards. Children here will be seen gathered around books, loose parts, engaging materials, tinker tubs and sensory bins. Children can get lost in curiosity and will spend their days surrounded by discovery and wonder as they will be engaged in playful learning. We ARE preparing children for school, but we are NOT a boot camp for Kindergarten.
