Building a Foundation for Success
When children learn with their specific age group, several exciting things occur. We observe a natural bonding among children of the same age and use that opportunity to help them reach developmental goals.
Summary of Age-Group Goals
Social skills can be fun! Children are gently led through positive transitioning, making friends, resolving conflicts (using words), learning rules, learning to listen, following instructions and respecting personal space. Hurray for “circle” time!
Creative skills can be unique! Your child discovers artistic talents … painting, coloring, tearing paper, using glue, and performance in front of others … singing and dancing.
Physical activity can be strengthening. Our program provides children with twice-weekly swimming lessons (four times weekly in summer), learning to user playground equipment, taking healthy rests/naps and potty training.
Academic skills can be enriching. Children are introduced to phonics and the enjoyment of memorizing songs.
Social skills: I’m a big boy or big girl now! Your growing child works in a group, learns to cooperate with others, and enjoys dramatic play.
Creative skills—messy can be fun. Children explore painting with fingers, brushes and stamps, and unleashing their creativity using easels, scissors and innovative techniques. They expand their artistic experience to use the entire page with vibrant colors and shapes.
Physical activity can build confidence. The fun continues with twice-weekly swimming lessons (four time weekly in summer), learning to ride pedaled and hand-propelled bikes, and experiencing family- and life-affirming community opportunities.
Academic skills can be engaging. Children have fun reciting and understanding the alphabet; create exciting daily, weekly and monthly projects; and learning to sit and focus in group activities.
