Do you still believe that studying begins at the school desk? The truth is that your child’s early life experiences are decisive in affecting their future health, well-being, behavior, and cognitive skills. Thus, it is never too early to begin to learn. All children are smart; the only thing a good caregiver should do is to create conditions for them to discover their potential. Your baby always gives you cues to understand what physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and language needs he/she has. Yet, it is much easier when you have the support of the professional in your hard job of being a parent.
That is why our care center offers you to entrust your child to the best specialists of the field, creating a home-away-from-home environment for learning and development. To meet even the smallest needs of your kids and make them feel secure and confident, only the most experienced, committed, and creative specialists are here at your service. Our mission is to nurture the talents of every single child by developing an individual approach regardless of age. Moreover, we promote healthy living and social responsibility necessary for the development of unique learning programs. You will have a variety of options that you can choose from to make you peacefully work in knowing that your child is provided with the best care that we can offer in our facility.
For the youngest, we offer early sensory stimulation to allow them to develop their motor skills and explore the world. For toddlers (1-2 years old), we provide richer sensory experiences and language training based on self-paced development. Children who are already 3 years old will have a variety of tasks that help stimulate their interest and create initial awareness of the essence of school learning. They will study people, objects, and the environment. Their activities will include nature, science, cooking, music, drawing, painting, and even dramatic play since our goal is not only to develop them intellectually but also to assist them in expressing their creativity.
To receive the desirable outcome, we rely on the following major strategies:
- We model appropriate behavior even in the youngest. To achieve quicker behavioral development, it is highly important to take advantage of everyday routines for children to understand what is expected from them in certain settings. For instance, they are taught to greet one another when they come or share their toys and thank those who help them. Furthermore, we encourage them to talk and describe what they are doing for them to be able to manage the situation properly even if they are alone (David & Weinstein, 2013).
- As far as social development is concerned, we believe that it is essential to build problem-solving skills as early as possible. This develops reasoning, inhibitory control, creativity, and decision making that will be crucial when they go to school. For example, our children learn how to solve conflicts using mental flexibility and how to get what they want from others by explaining or showing it. This way we teach them how to avoid crying or other negative stimulations (Sluckin, 2017).
- For a more effective linguistic development, children must be always engaged in communication with both caregivers and other children. For example, we have activities when children play with words, tell one another what they feel, describe their favorite toys, etc. For the smallest, we read books aloud and play songs to foster early speaking (Ansell, 2016).
We also believe that the schedule is a highly important aspect of child development. When children get used to performing particular activities at a particular time, they learn self-organization and time-management. Furthermore, it is a proven fact that children feel better and healthier when their day is planned. Thus, the schedule we offer is the following:
- 7 a.m. – 7.30 a.m. – morning exercises for toddlers
- We believe that it is essential to develop children not only mentally but also physically. They should know that their day must begin with exercising to feel good for the rest of the day. Physical fitness should be cultivated as soon as a child can repeat the simplest movements. For those who are too small, we do massage.
- 7.30 a.m. – 8.00 a.m. – breakfast
- Breakfast is the most important part of the day since it gives energy and awakes the body from sleep. Moreover, it is necessary to get nutrients after exercising. That is why we offer your kids the freshest fruit, vegetables, and juice in addition to milk products and corn. We avoid using any chemicals, additives, canned or frozen foods.
- 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. – learning activities
- These include sensory exercising for the smallest and more difficult ones for toddlers.
- 10 a.m. – 12.30 a.m. – walking
- This allows children to explore the environment and learn from it.
- 12.30 a.m. -13.00 – lunch
- We offer a balanced combination of meat/fish, corns, and vegetables with fruit going for a dessert.
- 13.00 – 14.30 – day sleeping
- It is crucial to make children used today sleeping since this is the best way to refill them with energy.
- 14.30 – 17.00 – social, creative, and language activities.
- This period is filled with activities depending on the age: listening to music, singing, dancing, drawing, theater acting, communicating, etc.
