Child Care

Infant and Toddlers ~ Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool  ~ Before and After School Care

school age care Infants
Dinosaur Den Child Development Center offers a wonderful environment for infants. The "Baby Bronto Room" follows the individual napping and feeding schedules of each child. The staff will work with your infant on reaching developmental milestones including large motor skills and language through floor play, books, music, flash cards and sensory toys. Basic sign language will be taught so that your infant can better communicate basic needs: eat, drink, more, please, etc.

Toddler Programs
Dinosaur Den's one- and two-year-old rooms follow a routine daily schedule which includes music, story time, circle time, art, indoor play and outside play. The staff will work with your child on reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones and plan activities to develop their large and fine motor skills, as well as language  and social development. Our one-year-old "Stegosaurus Room" provides care for children who are at least 12 months of age, walking on their own, eating table food and taking one afternoon nap. To help one-year-olds communicate better, the staff will teach and use simple sign language for eat, drink, more, please, all finished and thank you. Potty training will begin in the two-year-old "T-Rex Room" before the child's third birthday and once the parent(s) decide(s) a child is ready.

Preschool Programs
Dinosaur Den has a young preschool "Triceratops Room" for potty-trained three- and four-year-olds and a pre-kindergarten "Dimetrodon Room" for four- and five- year-olds. Both preschool rooms follow a routine daily schedule, which includes circle time, art, music, small group learning centers (including art, manipulatives, cars/trucks, housekeeping/dramatic play and science,) outside play, and special activities. The staff will work on preschool skills including writing and scissor use, working to prepare your child for entering kindergarten. A basic evaluation will be conducted and sent home assessing your child’s progress on their pre-kindergarten skills. The Dimetrodon Room schedules occasional field trips during the school year and weekly field trips during the summer months.

Before and After School Care
Before and/or afterschool care is available to school-age children with transportation to and from several Olathe schools. Full-day care is also available on non-school days (conference breaks, spring and winter school breaks and snow days) or half-school days with an additional fee charged. Advance notice from parents is required for non-school days or any changes to the daily schedule regarding pick-up from schools or full-day attendance. The school-age room follows a daily schedule after school including snack, outdoor time and structured and unstructured activity time. Occasional field trips may be planned during scheduled school breaks. Reservations for our school-year program begins at the end of May for our current families and opens to the public in June.
