Fun & Creativity
Children do learn through process focused art. We use art to simulate social and emotional well being with our
children to help them relax, focus, feel successful, it also helps them express their feelings. Art stimulates language and literacy. Art connects to a child's cognitive development.
Children compare, predict, plan, and problem solve. Art also stimulates a child's use of small motor skills to paint, write, glue, use clay, and make collages.
We use the benefits of music during our instructional time to help our children develop small and large motor skills, express emotions, and improve balance and coordination.
Play is key to all areas of children’s development, including movement and motor skills development. Our
movement activities include play with balls, boxes and pegs, outdoor play, rough-and-tumble play, and nature play.
As child care providers, we play an important role in supporting early language development. We help children learn language in easy yet exciting ways by: singing, reading, having conversations, writing, drawing, finger plays, rhymes, poems, music and story telling.
Math is an important part of learning for children in the early years, because it provides vital life skills. Math helps children problem solve, measure and develop their own spatial awareness, and teach them how to use and understand shapes.
We use outdoor play for our children's physical health, development and self-confidence. It’s great fun too! We use our outdoor play ideas including tummy time, ball play, nature walks, bike rides and more.
