The next level of the journey helps children master the necessary skills for kindergarten success. A center-based early childhood education environment encourages learning that is social, interactive—and fun! This is where children make advancements in:
Eight dynamic learning centers give these children the chance to make significant advances and experience a number of hands-on activities.
Various art techniques and color concepts help bolster creativity, problem-solving, and self-expression.
Children develop hand-eye coordination with various shapes and conceptual and physical exploration of counting, sorting, and patterning.
Early reading and writing abilities, as well as emotional expression, are built through cooperative pretend play and creating stories.
Recognizing numbers builds to concepts like comparing, sorting, counting, and ordering.
Children explore physical coordination, collaboration, and effective communication as they sing, dance, and move.
Activities in this area focus on animals, weather, plants, and the seasons.
Children work on their print awareness, their ability to comprehend stories, and their listening skills.
Through the exploration of rhymes and sounds and letter recognition and formation, children start to build writing skills.

Get Moving, Get Learning
Get Moving, Get Learning
Movement is critical to providing a child’s brain with blood and oxygen, which is why combining movement and learning can be so helpful for children. That’s why Childtime offers active learning, and now, you can use these same ideas at home with your child.
...children’s brains are more alert when they are moving. This is why it can be so important to incorporate movement into educational activities, such as practicing literacy skills.
Demonstrating respect and empathy for others through self-awareness.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.
