Kindergarten is an exciting step for children and parents alike. At Childtime educational daycare, much of what we have done in previous years has all been leading up to it. But it is during our Kindergarten Connection Program, for children age 4-5, that it becomes even more important. In this year, our child care will focus on:
The Empowered Child™ curriculum at Childtime was designed by early education specialists and follows the guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice set forth by national accrediting associations and Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. This educational child care program helps children develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they’ll need to succeed in kindergarten, school and life.
Teachers plan lessons to deepen understanding of basic academic concepts through exploration, investigation and play. While we increase the focus on math, science, language and social studies, we’ll make sure it’s presented with a big dose of fun. We provide classrooms where children can challenge themselves and enjoy the thrill of discovery as they look forward to school. In fact, a study showed that children in our program made substantial gains in development and had the necessary skills to enter and excel in kindergarten.
