Daycare description / philosophyHere is a little about our method of teaching:
Come meet us at Early Explorers we are a licensed center for children ages 18mths- 5yrs. Our center is open 7:30 am - 6:00pm and offer both full and part time spaces. We are an Emergent center that allows the teachers to focus on the children's interests, our program plans are presented in the form of a web layout to allow the children's days to flow at their comfortability level so all can explore both inside and outside creatively. Our classrooms are designed with the children's interests in mind.
Toddlers love climbing, dumping, stacking, sorting, and exploring so our focus is centers fostering these skills.
Pre-schoolers focus on fine and gross motor, social, language and exploring independently, this in mind this classroom is set up with centers in three rooms to allow focus on their areas of interest. The preschool teachers are here to foster building block skills. We use various creative techniques such as visual art, music and drama. When a particular interest is shown by the children their interests inspire learning in the basic areas of letters, numbers, printing, reading and early math and science skills. There is also a strong focus on social interaction, building friendships and learning respect for themselves and others in everyday situations. French is taught through play, music and movement and we have a bilingual teacher come in once a week to explore more language skills with both toddlers and preschool children. The entire center is designed to offer plenty of natural light even our family space where mixed ages come together to work on activities and have snacks and lunch.
An onsite play area is essential as we are out exploring twice a day, some of our time spent outside is using our messy tables, riding on the bike path, taking care of our many plants, making up games, and exploring as much as they possibly can.
There is a music class taught by a teacher from Music for Young Children that is tailored for each age group once a week onsite.
Meals are planned for four weeks and rotates. We have a cook on site to work with any dietary requirements. Fresh meals with plenty of fresh fruits and veggies fill our menu and healthy sugar-free baked goods.
