Baby Nidos (6 weeks-15 months)

The highly-trained educators at KLA Schools of Naperville know the importance of establishing trust-filled relationships with infants. They soothe and nurture children, building a sense of confidence by responding quickly and appropriately to their natural cues.

Children begin to communicate by pointing, clapping their hands, and making different movements and sounds in response to their environment. Babies love to be spoken to while loving eye contact is maintained. Your child will begin to imitate sounds they hear and experiment with different facial expressions like smiling and frowning.

Children begin to point, raise hands, and make different movements and sounds to communicate as the educator asks questions connecting to the movement or to the sound. Babies love to be spoken to. Your child will begin to imitate sounds they hear and experiment with different facial expressions like smiling and frowning.

Our educators prepare various large motor experiences inside the classroom, around the common areas of the school, and outside in the playgrounds and garden for your child to challenge themself physically and develop gross motor skills. It is a time when children reach many milestones such as, turning over, sitting, crawling, standing, and maybe even take their first steps.

Nido (15-24 months)

As your child begins to walk, run, and jump, our educators observe and analyze their interactions with the environment. Our teachers use these observations to determine interests and create projections based on your child’s curiosity.

By this age, the vocabulary of most toddlers includes approximately 50 words. Our educators encourage your child to develop their expressive language skills and witness an increase in their recall ability. Empathy, pretend play, and social roles are explored as children navigate their first relationships and begin to create their own identities.

The world is full of things to discover for the Nidos! Children’s confidence begins to evolve as they: 

  • Move and dance to music
  • Identify new parts of their environment  
  • Sort and collect a variety of materials
  • Participate in inviting experiences such as a sensory table, paint, clay
  • Develop emergent literacy and prewriting skills by pointing to characters in the book, coloring, scribbling, and much more.
  • Enrichment experiences 


As your child grows in our safe and comfortable environment, they become more autonomous and open to taking risks. Independence is often an evident milestone for two-year-olds. They start discovering all the beautiful things they can do on their own, such as eating, washing hands, dressing, and learning to use the bathroom.

Teachers encourage children to become self-sufficient through various sensorial, fine motor, and gross motor experiences. While your child becomes more vocal and begins to put sentences together, our educators create opportunities for conversations to help expand comprehension and literacy skills.

Relationships are essential, and our educators help children form connections while promoting a safe, respectful space for self-expression. By encouraging communication between the children, they begin to understand the dynamics of a classroom community. Our teachers share stories, building vocabulary, and sparking an interest in reading. The children start to grasp the meaning behind print and pictures because the educators bridge the writings with objects and events from the children’s lives. Children experiment with art, scribble, and draw. Teachers create a supportive, rich environment which offers multiple opportunities for children to:

  • Recognize common symbols
  • Some letters (including the first letter of their names)
  • Other lines and shapes

Our educators ask open-ended questions and brainstorm discussions to encourage children to verbalize their ideas and promote conversations amongst themselves. During these interactions, teachers take notes or make recordings to document a child’s thinking as new projects emerge. Through these projects, children develop social and cognitive skills such as:

  • Problem-solving
  • Collaboration
  • Understanding cause and effect
  • Sharing, Respecting and other core values
  • How to be a contributing member of a group


As your child turns three, verbal language becomes a powerful tool they use to express themselves. Identity and independence accelerate, and they begin to question everything around them. 

A child’s excitement for communication is awakened by Writing names and numbers, representing thoughts through pictures and conversations with peers. While their growing understanding of language strengthens, children are encouraged to recognize critical ideas, details of stories, positional relations, and vocabulary terms. Furthermore, they learn to develop hypotheses based on observations, questions, and investigations. While your child learns new words and fine-tunes their articulation, they communicate by beginning to: 

  • Use simple sentences
  • Initiate conversations 
  • Share their interests and personal experiences 
  • Recite simple rhymes
  • Ask questions
  • Express themselves in basic language

Educators prepare environments that encourage interactions between children, where they exchange knowledge and engage in conversations. The teachers ask open-ended questions to deepen discussions of topics and provoke thoughts to form children’s theories, which makes it meaningful to the children and strengthen their confidence and love for learning. 

Three-year-olds are still relying on their senses to understand the world around them. Our educators continue to expose them to many sensorial materials such as paint and clay to further their progress. These materials support the children in developing: 

  • Critical thinking
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Creativity and Innovation

As their drawings become more detailed and representational, children begin to tell stories through them. This, in turn, helps them to understand that:

  • Print carries a message 
  • The words we speak can be written and read 
  • Stories have a beginning, middle, and an end

Throughout the year, scribbles begin to appear more like symbols and letters. Children may string several of these “letters” together to form words, dictating some for the teachers to write down. Educators encourage this process by setting up provocations around the spaces of the classroom. Children are invited to explore the world of the written code through:

  • Books
  • Notepads and writing tools
  • Labels
  • Maps 

Activities provide great joy as children’s gross motor skills become stronger. Three-year-olds love to feel a sense of accomplishment and conquer challenges. Some of the age-appropriate opportunities for them to learn, grow, and shine include: 

  • Running
  • Throwing and catching a ball
  • Dancing 
  • Puzzle assembly
  • Painting
  • Drawing  


Four-year-olds are interested in finding out how everything works. At this stage, your child will develop greater self-control, autonomy, and enjoy trying new experiences. With their vocabulary and pronunciation improved, they begin communicating in more complex and compound sentences.

Educators facilitate comprehension with appropriate tools, materials, and thought-provoking questions. As children develop relationships, they build an understanding of what causes certain feelings to manifest and gain an appreciation for how others may react differently to the same situations. Thus, they begin to engage in and enjoy more complex social interactions and organized group play.

This age group frequently initiates conversations and are more open to collaborating and sharing. Children feel confident to express themselves verbally, and often exchange ideas and suggestions. Our teachers and children reflect on their experiences through observations and documentation, including:

  • Photographs
  • Discussions
  • Videos
  • Voice recordings

At the age of four, your child is constructing their knowledge of the written language. They want to know how to read and write the words they see in their environment and can recognize many letters. By the end of this year, many children: 

  • Understand that letters represent spoken sounds they hear 
  • Learn how to write some legible letters
  • Are aware that writing goes from left-to-right and top to bottom

Four-year-olds are very curious and have active imaginations! They become complex thinkers and enjoy making predictions by gathering information through experiments of trial and error. They can successfully use language to:

  • Utilize the collection of data and graphs
  • Grasp basic engineering practices
  • Compare and describe objects and shapes
  • Know the days of the week
  • Recognize months and seasons

Four-year-olds enjoy dancing and can move rhythmically and with ease. As their motor skills and coordination develop, children perform actions more skillfully and with ease. They have an improved ability to:

  • Run
  • Climb
  • Hop and skip
  • March and gallop
  • Dance and move rhythmically
  • Throw, catch, kick and bounce balls
  • Hold writing tools
  • Get dressed and undressed independently 


Kindergarten is the pivotal bridge children cross into the standardized school system. By this age, children become mindful, active participants in group projects. They begin negotiating with their peers and learn to balance their interests while appreciating and respecting the feelings and opinions of others.

Furthermore, their verbal expression starts to sound more sophisticated with the appropriate use of prepositions and interrogatives. Children’s self-confidence and management skills emerge alongside their growing academic capabilities.
