Shoe Shopping Reminder:
When you are shopping for shoes, please
remember that open-toe sandals, cowboy boots,
thongs, jellies and dress shoes are not
appropriate for our Child Care.
We based our
curriculum on the understanding that young
children learn best through play, which involves
them inactively constructing their own
knowledge. We teach academics in a traditional
way: children are receiving school readiness
skills through becoming familiar with
Kindergarten objectives. Also we prepare
children for later success in school and in
life. We believe that what children need to
learn in the early years can be accomplished
through play, providing they have appropriate
guidance from nurturing and responsive care
Activities may be
drawn from Home Preschool Program or the
teachers may create their own activities--often
in direct response to the children's interests
in a particular topic or theme. For example,
cooking activities are extremely popular and
these can be done appropriately with all but the
very youngest. A skilled teacher can
successfully embed the teaching of language,
math, science, or emergent literacy skills
within the context of just about any cooking
believe that facilitating children's social and
emotional development is an important component
of our curriculum. After all, the ability to
understand and control one's own emotions, to
develop meaningful relationships with others, to
persist in the face of frustration or
disappointment, and to conform to social
expectations are as critical as any pre-academic
skills are to later school success. These skills
are taught through the course of everyday
routines, as opportunities arise, by sensitive,
supportive, and skilled care providers.
