Programs and Daily Schedule
Little Mavs has different programs for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Pre-Kindergarten.
Little Tots and Toddlers
Little Mavs accepts children in the toddler room at 12 - 20 months and walking. Children who are 20 - 35 months are admitted to the Toddlers room. The Little Tots and Toddlers have the opportunity to explore their world in a safe and loving environment through interactive play with peers and staff.
The Preschool Classroom is open to those children who are 2-1/2 and potty trained to 4 years old. Children participate in hands-on activities designed to enrich the child's overall development. Playing and being a kid is the most important thing in Preschool.
Pre-K is available during the year prior to entering public/private school. Learning centers help children develop pre-reading, writing and math skills. They also develop skills to help them function in a large group setting, and foster independent thinking and problem solving.
Morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack are served. The State of Colorado Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP) guidelines are followed. Monthly menus are posted.
Little Mavs sponsors some events throughout the year. There is an open house, a Fall Festival, Thanksgiving Feast, Spring Social, end of the year celebration and book fairs. Parents are also welcome to send treats to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.
