"Our infants are learning new things everyday! We play with a variety of toys that use different senses, such as, bright lights for sight and music for hearing. It's not uncommon to see our staff members on the floor playing too! We love to sing and look at picture books. Our room is always brightly decorated. Since infants are all on different schedules, they eat when they are hungry and sleep when they are tired! Our staff members also teach the infants important daily skills such as sitting up, crawling, and walking!
Our toddler groups are always busy! A toddler's day includes learning through play, art activities,and singing and movement activities. They are learning small muscle activities such as coloring and using paste as well as large muscle activities such as dancing and playing ball. We also teach the toddler daily skills such as using a spoon, drinking from a cup, following simple directions, and eventually using the potty! We also encourage the children to use manners and play nicely with each other!
Our 3 & 4 year old groups have more structured learning time than the younger groups. They participate in circle time daily that includes activities such as marking the date on the calendar, reading stories, and discussing various topics. These groups are introduced to the letters of the alphabet as well as counting and numbers. Their art activities now include more child creativity and more small muscle activities such as cutting with scissors. They seem to enjoy role playing and love to play at the local parks on warm days!
Our Pre-Kindergarten group consists of children who will attend Kindergarten in the Fall. We try to introduce the children to an atmosphere that is similar to a Kindergarten classroom. The children participate in circle time which includes marking the date on the calendar, reading stories, and discussing various topics. They are learning more about the letters of the alphabet such as how to print the letters and what sounds the different letters make. They are also learning to print numbers and are introduced to basic math principles such as adding and subtracting. The children also learn to print their names and recite their phone numbers, addresses, and birthdays. This group also has plenty of time for playing and making new friends! The Pre-Kindergarten group always end the school year with an exciting graduation ceremony!"
