Child Care Center at Lehman College



Toddlers are children from approximately two to three years of age. During this age, children begin to play together, sit for circle time, and group time. The teachers plan a curriculum based on a theme, in which they incorporate language, music, art, math, and science activities to enhance all areas of development (social, cognitive, language, gross and fine motor, self-help skills). Children learn to become more independent in self-help skills, including eating, dressing, using the bathroom, etc.


Pre-school children are three to five years of age and are completel potty trained. Children participate in preschool activities to prepare for Kindergarten. The teachers plan a curriculum to facilitate skills in all areas of development, including social, cognitive, fine and gross motor, self-help skills, and language skills. Academic areas include pre-reading, art, music, movement, science, and math. Each month there is a different theme (i.e. ocean life, zoo animals, farm animals, dinosaurs, space, transportation, community workers, safety, etc.).


After-school children range in ages from four to nine years of age. Children participate in age appropriate activities that will compliment the lessons of their primary schools. In a more relaxed atmosphere, children will participate in art activities, musical activities, board games, computer games, reading activities, and homework help.
