Individual and small group activities- Preschool and Pre-K Program- play an important part of our daily schedule and are conducted five days per week, in the morning hours between 9 am and 12 pm- when children are most eager to learn. Our little students take part in many educational activities that widen their imagination, help gain new experiences, and teach practical skills, all while having fun with their friends.
Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development. But art goes far beyond the tangible statistics measured by studies - it can become a pivotal mode of uninhibited self-expression and amazement for a child. Art matters the same way language matters. It is a fundamental component of what makes us uniquely human.
At Our Home Daycare children have Story Time every day before their nap in order to unleash their imagination and teach literacy skills that are essential building blocks as they transition towards becoming independent readers. How can you encourage further development of these skills? Just keep reading aloud. Choosing a lot of different books to read aloud will build your preschooler's vocabulary, help your child learn about different topics, and understand how stories are structured and what characters do in them. Understanding these basic concepts will help when kids start formal reading instruction in school.
