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.
Children do learn through process focused art. We use art to simulate social and emotional wellbeing 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.
Play is key to all areas of children’s development, including movement and motor skills development. Our movement activities include playing with balls, boxes and pegs, outdoor play, rough-and-tumble play, and nature play.
As childcare 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 storytelling.
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 teaches 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.
