EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS AND ENVIRONMENT
Designed to develop the minds of students from ages 3-5.
Children experience a variety of learning areas which aid the child’s play opportunities for development of language and literacy, intellectual skills, physical abilities, and aesthetic appreciation. Books, puzzles, art projects, music and songs, fingerplays, games, and dramatic play are just some activities children will take part in. All activities, materials, and equipment are developmentally appropriate. When interacting with others, children will develop greater self-awareness and self-control. Our main concern is that the children have meaningful experiences that foster growth in all learning areas in an environment that is safe and enjoyable. Learning centers are set up to work on math, science, language and reading skills in preparation for Kindergarten. We provide and arrange for experiences, but the children discover the answers themselves through active exploration, experimentation, and interaction with others. Team members help to guide each child and to focus on the “process” rather than the “product” of the activity.
