  • Early Childhood Education Programs

    Tinee Treasures Preschool and Childcare provide quality early childhood education programs for children six weeks through five years of age. Every one of our programs is meant to challenge and stimulate your child and provide a supportive, safe, language-rich learning environment. Our teachers provide you with weekly lesson plans that cover our hands-on exploration of literacy, mathematics, music, science, social skills, art, technology, dramatic play, creative expression and block play daily. Your child is bound to have positive self-esteem due to classroom material, activities and interactions that take place in our early childhood education programs.

  • Our teachers are attentive and listen to your children, responding to their ideas and suggestions; acknowledge their feelings – showing them the ropes of being respectful. We even provide comfort to children who are upset. Through positive reinforcement, our teachers are committed to providing your child with a positive social learning environment. The curriculum incorporates cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity. If you wish for your child’s teacher to incorporate any customs/traditions into our current curriculum, we encourage you to share that information with your child’s teacher.

    All our classrooms are ventilated, well lit, and maintained at a comfortable temperature. Our playground meets safety standards with shock-absorbing surfaces and is maintained regularly. All classrooms and their equipment and toys are cleaned on a regular basis. A Safety Audit is conducted annually to check for any potential hazards.

  • Infants (6 weeks-15 months) & Toddlers (15 months-23 months)

    Programs: Your infant and toddler will be embraced in a warm and loving environment. Weekly lesson plans get posted and are used to help spark your child’s curiosity with the world around them and to nurture individual deployment: physical, emotional and social.

    Two-Year-Old (3-5 years)

    Programs: Your two-year-old is more than likely always on the move, which is why we provide a safe and stimulating environment for them. We aim to have your child manipulate the world around them through language development, motor activities, stories, music, plays, sensory experiences and arts, and crafts. With parent consent, we begin toilet training, too.

    Preschool (3-5 years)

    Programs: Our preschool program utilizes a hands-on approach, child-directed form of learning. The daily format consists of small group activities or whole group activities.

Our new staff goes under a 90-day probation period and every staff member has been verified via a background check conducted by state police, FBI and CANTS.
