Diverse Learning Environments
The infant and toddler curriculum is designed to meet the unique and individual needs of the infants and toddlers we serve. Our infant/toddler care is not babysitting; it is quality early learning education. The components of a quality infant/toddler curriculum are based on:
Loving & nurturing environments.
Schedules & routines that support their physical growth and motor skills.
Hands-on exploration and play in a safe, opportunity filled environment.
Play is young children’s work; it is how they learn and is the basis of our infant/toddler curriculum.
The 2-year-old program introduces children to a fun and stimulating curriculum, which includes educational activities such as identifying numbers, colors, shapes, and letters. Lesson plans at our preschool for 2-year-olds are designed to help teach children important fundamentals while allowing each child to initiate and fine-tune their motor skills. This involves the use of paints, puzzles, blocks, crayons, and other creative tools. Children begin their steps towards independence by mastering potty training, self-care & hygiene,
Our 3-year-old preschool program continues focus on learning essentials such as teaching children to learn how to identify and recite the alphabet. The preschool program for 3-year-olds is also where children practice writing letters and numbers. Children are also taught how to write as well as recognize basic geometric shapes, colors, and the value of numbers. Group and individual activities are incorporated into their daily routine, which allows them to embrace their developmental needs of interaction and become more socially adept with interpersonal skills.
Florida was one of the first states in the country to offer free prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds regardless of family income. The Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program -- or VPK -- prepares early learners for success in kindergarten and beyond. VPK helps build a strong foundation for school using educational material corresponding to various stages in a child's development.
