ITC believes children learn best when actively engaged - in play, language, science, and art. At ITC, children will enjoy indoor exploration in our beautiful farmhouse, while our private 3.5 acre site gives children daily interaction with nature and the outdoors. Each age group has a designated playground furnished with age-appropriate play possibilities, and opportunities to explore the surrounding conservation land. Our unique curriculum includes frequent nature walks, a music partnership with Indian Hill Music, our own vegetable garden for all ages, cooking, arts, and more!

Dear ITC Families,
Thank you so much for the art show such a success! It was wonderful having everyone on campus to enjoy the hallway gallery and spend time together under the sunny skies. Didn't our teachers do an incredible job inspiring and facilitating some amazing work?
For those who couldn't make it, the 'gallery' will remain open all week. Plan for a little extra time at drop off or pick up to enjoy the beautiful pieces throughout the ITC hallways. Once everyone has had a chance to enjoy, artwork will be available to take home.

The ITC Events Team
Cloudy skies and a little rain didn't get in our way from accomplishing great things at Campus Clean Up Day. Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spring Campus Cleanup Day! Special thanks to our friends at SORRENTO'S for a generous pizza lunch to our crew and the numerous families who joined us for projects big and small. Over 50 volunteers gathered on Saturday morning to tackle clean up, mulching, adding fresh sand to boxes, and some general repair tasks left by Mother Nature this winter. As a team, we added fresh sand to every playground; mulched beds at the entrance, exit, and throughout the main campus; cleared gutters; washed and organized toys; and got all the spring and summer gear out for play days ahead. THANK YOU for your contribution to the ITC Community. We look forward to having more fun again this Fall! Check out photos of before, during and after.
Thank you for your generous support of the ITC Annual Appeal. So far, we've achieved $5,535 of our $10,000 goal - and counting. For more information about the ITC Annual Appeal, visit the Annual Appeal page on our site!

ITC invites early childhood educators to join in this annual teacher conference. This year's focus is All about Relationships - working with infants and toddlers in groups.
We're using #GivingTuesday as a launchpad for this years campaign to give back to the community. Starting Tuesday, 11/29, ITC will be accepting gently used winter coats, diapers, and wipes to help the children served by Cradles to Crayons.
Please join us for a tour of our carefully appointed classrooms and sumptuous outdoor spaces designed to reflect the growing needs of children 3 months to 8 years. Teachers and administrators will be on hand to discuss our innovative, family-centered program with you. We will review our responsive curriculum and well-thought out daily routines through the lens of the basic tenets of our program---a perspective on early childhood that puts relationships at the very center of our learning environment.
Here's another great invitation into the kitchen for you and your little one --- homemade play dough. This recipe used at ITC allows children to experiment with mixing, coloring, and ultimately imagination!
Check out how ITC campus transformed for fall!
This week, we released copy of our Annual Report. The Board generated this document as part of our ongoing effort to increase transparency. Our goal is to keep parents informed about important details of our organization and to encourage a consistent dialogue between school and families.
This year our series will focus on the many roles that relationships play in our work. Connecting with parents, working with co-workers and working with infants and toddlers all require establishing and maintaining relationships with each other. As humans, we constantly seek affirming connection and a sense of belonging. This year we will look deeper into just how and why those connections impact our work with children, families, and each other in our center-based environments.
Sensory experiences abound in our cooking experiences. The sights, smell, feel, and ultimately taste of our creations delighted us - and what better way to transform our fresh garden zucchini than into a muffin!
At ITC, with the help of the entire community and a donation from the Susan Twombly Grant, we have designed, built and implemented a permanent garden, which currently consists of 6 large beds built by ITC families, one for each age group. By investing in this venture, we are able to broaden the children’s learning experiences; including, but not limited to, the five senses
Full and part-time openings for one and three year-olds for September 2016.

Join current and alumni families at Nara Park's Picnic Pavilion on Sunday, June 5th from 12pm - 4pm to celebrate ITC's 35th Anniversary!

This cinnamon dough made into rolled out shapes dries to a hard finish and when hung in a room, gives off a wonderful smell.
