Onionpatch Infant and Daycare has chosen to use the Pinnacle Curriculum which is a research-based early childhood curriculum, designed with both teachers and students in mind. Based on the works of Piaget, Gardner, and Erikson, Pinnacle provides teachers with lessons that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities.


All aspects of developmentally appropriate instruction in the areas of music, bible focus, language, fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional development, art and outdoor play are engaged each day for all children of all abilities.


Our infant/toddler class will encourage the children to explore and discover his or her world daily.  This will be accented with the use of sensory activities and language development (children will learn by ‘doing’).  The teacher will provide the parent with a weekly goal, in keeping with the learning environment.  Parents are always welcome to take part in classroom activities and share ideas with teachers who are always happy to discuss concerns or answer questions.


For the curious parent, we have an open door policy which will allow the parent or other relatives to check up on what their child is up to, any time of the day.


Along with teacher instruction, the child will have the opportunity to develop his or her own hands-on learning style, giving the child the chance to learn at his or her own pace, allowing them to master a skill that which they are comfortable.  Children will learn by manipulating and interacting with their environment through a variety of play experiences.


Teachers will provide the parent with a monthly goal sheet encouraging parents to take part in the weekly lessons and reinforce the daily learning experience at home.  Children will be given, on a daily basis, the chance to work with shapes, numbers, singing and manipulatives.


This is not a babysitting service.  The children, regardless of age, will be engaged throughout the day, learning new skills and reinforcing already acquired ones.
