As they enter their third year, children become more and more curious. It’s that natural sense of curiosity that we at Childtime child care use to teach them to learn and grow. Within our home-like classrooms, your older toddler is free to be anything from an artist to an engineer. Playing pretend, learning games, participating in hands-on activities — these are just a few of the ways we keep kids engaged. But all these games and activities are done for a reason, encouraging development in a number of key areas. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate small group interactions to work closely with your child to assure mastery of developmental tasks. Your child will also participate in large group activities to explore concepts and enjoy early literacy experiences.
Our Powerful Beginnings educational child care curriculum encourages kids’ natural curiosity and willingness to try new things, so children discover the ways that they learn best. So in addition to basic skills, your child learns about self-direction, self-reliance and self-esteem.
Our classrooms are divided into general interest areas that meet children’s need to move, explore and express and relax. And since learning how to relate to others is also important, we do large- and small-group activities every day.
