This program is especially designed for younger children who are experiencing school for the first time. We work on self-regulation (understanding one’s feelings), social and emotional, and other skill sets to help foster longer focus and concentration using different materials including sensory (which are important at this age). Small groups of children are given a variety of materials to explore while teachers use inquiry-based questions to foster language development. Teachers read meaningful literature and introduce Spanish in organic ways to entice children. Our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) program is introduced to children through a variety of materials, nurturing their creative thinking and imaginative play. Children will be introduced to music through singing and instruments. And children will learn basic breathing techniques while engaging in yoga exercises. Children will have one on one attention to work through social challenges such as entering play and leading play. Teachers support each child until mastery in group play is learned.
In after school care, we will focus on resting and outdoor play to give children ample opportunities to strengthen their gross motor skills. Children will have a 45 min. rest/nap time. For children who don’t nap there is quiet time for books and other quiet activities. Children will have an opportunity to finish their lunch if they are hungry. An interactive story time with music, outdoor play and a hot meal (dinner) is included consisting of hearty vegetables, meat (vegan/vegetarian option), rice/pasta and fruits. Then more outdoor play before pick up.
Tuition includes a nutritious morning snack of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
