Our Program

Deer Valley Academy is dedicated to developing avid, lifetime learners. Just as our pre-school curriculum is developed from the nationally recognized Mother Goose Time curriculum. The curriculum follows the same topics and uses the same tools as the pre-school program, but adapted in a toddler-friendly way. The Little Goose Infant/Toddler curriculum is created by our own teachers but also incorporates Mother Goose Time.

For each distinct age grouping (Incredible Infants, Terrific Toddlers and Little Kids), activities include developing gross motor skills, fine motor skills, language and speech, social concepts, art/music/science/number concepts and safety concepts/skills.
