OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our Early Childhood Program provides a broad and stimulating environment which reflects the cultural background, abilities and interests of the children.  It is an environment which responds to each child’s needs for something familiar as well as something new and challenging.  From an early age the children learn to appreciate, and ultimately value, each other’s differences while working together for a common purpose.  We offer a nurturing facility which allows for effective transition from home to school.

PROGRAM OUTLINE

Our goal is to help each child grow intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically in a developmentally appropriate setting.  Some examples of our activities are:

  • Field trips, books and many varied experiences to increase their knowledge of the world around them.
  • Activities that will encourage verbal expression and independent thinking, such as stories, music, books and videos.
  • Learning to share, take turns, work and play with others.
  • Play outdoors and inside using large motor skills, running, skipping, big-wheel riding, balls, climbing toys, dance and exercise.
  • Learning self-help skills such as putting on coats and boots and using the bathroom.
  • Working with paints, play dough, crayons, blocks, puzzles and other manipulative material to develop small muscles.
  • Experience classroom cooking projects and acquire good health and cleanliness habits.

These skills are needed and helpful so that when children enter kindergarten they will have successful experiences.  The units of study may include many others: self-concept, numbers, colors, shapes, ABCs, holidays, community help, pets, nursery rhymes, the five senses, plants, seasons, farm animals, zoo animals, safety, nutrition, dinosaurs and transportation.
