About Our Programs

We offer a variety of programs for children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old.

Bearfoot Lodge has developed age-specific programs to aid the developing minds, bodies, and emotions of growing children, from six-week-old infants to 12-year-old preteens.

At Bearfoot Lodge, we back our programs with over 20 years of research in order to create an optimal system that integrates education, fun, and safety. Like our students, we love to learn! This is why we keep current on the latest research in childhood development and cognitive sciences, and continually integrate the latest findings into our programs.

Infants

6 weeks - 1 year

At Bearfoot Lodge Private School, we love our infant care program because we take nurturing to heart. Your brand new baby is your pride and joy, and we understand how hard it can be to leave your precious bundle in the hands of someone else. In our infant daycare program, our affectionate caregivers give your little one all the attention, love and support they need to create strong and healthy emotional bonds. As experienced childhood development experts, we know it’s important to rock, cuddle, talk to and sing to babies at this age. Happy smiles abound during story time and playtime, as your infant learns that the world is a positive place to be—creating a solid foundation for many peaceful years to come.

Before & After Care

Our child care programs don’t end when kids go off to elementary school. We know parenting is a full-time job and you’ve got your hands full, so that’s why we are happy to provide before and after school care for your growing young ones. Our before and after school programs are anything but passive—from helping your child set goals at the beginning of the day to doing homework together in the afternoons, we believe there are opportunities for growth at all times. Snacks, socialization and skill development are all a part of our safe, supervised before and after school program. Kids love hanging out with friends, receiving guidance from our teachers and learning in a relaxed, semi-structured way. Our supportive environment makes sure that growing young children have the right balance of freedom and healthy boundaries when outside their family or school settings. We make every day great!
