The foundation for a child's ability to learn and socialize is language acquisition and development. Literacy and language development is enhanced by meaningful activities such as everyday conversation with adults, listening and telling stories, engaging in word games, as well as, educational audio-visual games and props.
We introduce children to pre-reading and pre-writing activities depending on their age and readiness. The activities involve recognition of letters, words, labels, charts, and books.
Physical development plays an integral part in a child's academic development. Developing physical skills in our children is our main goal, which is essential for social, emotional, sensory and intellectual development in children.
Fine motor skills are developed through daily art and manipulative play, such as games, including puzzles and the use of paint brushes, crayons, tools, clay, sand and water. Large muscle skills and coordination are enhanced through jumping, pedaling and using the playground equipment.
Discovering, observing and expressing how things work is an ongoing source of joy for both the children and their caregivers.
We teach children about broad concepts of the earth and its elements: how to care for, and talk about, living things, how to move and balance inanimate objects with wheels and pulleys, and how things float or sink in water.
Key to a child's enjoyment of school and learning is the ability to communicate needs and interact successfully with peers.
We model appropriate, safe and healthy behaviors, and coach children on how to relate to other children and adults.
