All age groups are provided with a daily schedule structured with developmentally appropriate activities, that include monthly thematic units such as...."Getting to Know Us", "Long, Long Ago", "The Great Outdoors" and "Down on the Farm." National Holidays, field trips & center wide events, intertwine with these fun units!
Our curriculum offers a learning environment where infants begin to trust others and explore their surroundings. Through these discoveries, they develop a sense of themselves, as competent learners and caring human beings. Our program emphasizes important skills that become the building blocks for continued learning. Language acquisition, gross & fine motor skills, and social interaction are the foundation for future school success.
We provide children at this age with a nurturing environment, fostering a sense of security for toddlers. We guide them to a better understanding of the world around them through the use of verbal communication, sensory activities, story telling, music exploration, and the arts.
Basic introduction to colors, shapes, and beginning numbers, are taught through learning games, stories, dance and song. Our program includes art exploration which introduces a variety of mediums such as painting, collage, and finger painting. We provide manipulative activities to develop eye-hand coordination, small motor skills, and problem-solving skills through the use of play dough, building blocks, and sorting objects.
Curriculum focuses on: Oral communication, alphabet and number recognition, vocabulary expansion, color and shape recognition, self-awareness, food identification, table manners, arts and crafts (i.e. coloring, painting & pasting). Storytelling, music and movement, are all enjoyed on a daily basis.
Activities at this age involve identification of color, shapes, and numbers, as well as verbal and visual recognition of the alphabet and more, in depth.
