Waldwick, NJ Early Childhood

Small World Child Development Center Inc.

Small World is a family-owned, state-accredited preschool with a center in Waldwick, NJ. Our small class sizes and prekindergarten programs are designed to meet the individual needs of children age 2 months through 6 years old.

Toward that end, we have structured our early childhood programs into 5 basic age groups, which allow our teachers to give every single child personal attention and age-appropriate activities and supervision.

Infants will sleep, eat, and play on their own schedule. Our qualified teachers work closely with parents to duplicate each infant's home schedule to secure a happy, healthy transition. Our infants thrive on the quality care they receive.
Toddlerhood is a time of exploration. A child can explore and socialize in a warm, loving atmosphere. Learning activities are scheduled throughout the day to introduce structure and the concept of sharing. At this age, the child is learning to become independent. Participation in hands-on activities and toilet training are encouraged, but never forced.

Two-year-olds are learning to become independent people. Speech development and motor skills are growing rapidly during this period some call the "terrible twos.” If they want something, they take it. If they're mad, they scream or hit. Our teachers model the correct way to interact with each other and their environment. This helps children learn positive ways to control their impulsiveness. The two’s are introduced to structure but do have time to choose their activity freely. Teaching them to control themselves in a positive manner is one major goal of our program for 2 year-olds.

Prekindergarten Program ( 3 Year-olds )
This is the age when children begin working well in small groups. They will begin learning kindergarten-level reading skills and enrich their already advanced social skills through hands-on activities. Developing a love for learning and creating close friendships are two important aspects of our program for 3 year-olds.

Prekindergarten ( 4 Year-olds )
Our prekindergarten program prepares children for kindergarten through various academic and social activities. A warm, safe atmosphere will enhance the child's love for learning. Four-year-olds are able to work well in small groups and can develop close friendships.
