Infants (6 weeks to 15 months)
We understand how hard it is to be away from your baby during the day. We could never replace you, but we will nurture your infant in a loving, parent-like way.  We go above and beyond to provide infants confidence and security.

Our Infant Program does not follow a set schedule, because we believe babies should eat and sleep when needed.



Toddlers (16 months to 2 years)
Toddlers especially learn best through play — at The Sitter, they follow a schedule of eating and naptime. They are starting to learn independence.



Twos (2-3 years)
In this class, we introduce colors, numbers and letters. Potty training also begins, along with a focus on sounds, love of reading, and fine motor skills (hands-on activities like block building).



Threes (3-4 years)

At this age, our curriculum focuses on shapes, numbers and colors, as well as introduction to Spanish, storytime, and sing-along.



Pre-K (4-5 years)
Kindergarten readiness is key! Children learn how to write their names and tie their shoes. They memorize their address and phone number, and develop respect for each other. They continue learning Spanish (started at age 3) and work through the Virginia Beach kindergarten transition checklist.



Before- and After-School
Our After-School Program encourages and provides homework assistance—parents only need to check the homework when they get home! We have computers, work on respecting each other, and teach life skills including self-discipline and self-control.

For Before and After-School, we provide transportation to the following elementary schools:
Brookwood, Green Run, Holland, Lynnhaven, Parkway, Rosemont, Windsor Oaks, Windsor Woods and White Oaks.



Summer Camp
Our Summer Program is full of fun activities and lots of fields trips.
Every Friday is water play! We also typically visit the Virginia Aquarium, the Children's Museum, parks and the bowling alley.

A big part of our summer school-age program is that we work with them academically over the summer so they don't lose important skills.
