YOUNG PRESCHOOLERS PROGRAM
The Kids R Kids Clayton Curriculum for preschoolers provides children with an array of individual, and small and large group activities. Each week children will explore a theme through group time introductions and reviews, daily enrichment, and additions to each learning center.
Preschool children are beginning to prepare for the elementary school years. As professionals, the teachers at Kids R Kids of Clayton provide a structured learning environment so each child will have a strong foundation.
Because preschoolers like to learn new information and have the desire to master new tasks, much of what your child learns will be through self-directed experiences. Throughout the day children will have the opportunity to explore the classroom’s learning centers: Blocks & Building Design, Dramatic Play, Library & Literature, Math & Table Activities, Music & Movement, Sand & Water, Science & Discovery, and Writing Exploration. Learning through play, in these clearly defined areas of interest, promotes independence, fosters decision-making, and encourages hands-on involvement. Each learning center engages the child’s core components of development: social-emotional, language, cognitive, physical and aesthetic. Kids R Kids recognizes the importance of combining a well-designed curriculum with age appropriate learning centers and understands how these two classroom components contribute to each child’s development.
Our outdoor activities are planned to help extend learning to the outside classroom. Just as small muscle coordination is strengthened through puzzles, painting, and cutting, large muscle coordination is developed through outdoor play. Learning cooperation and team building through games and planned activities helps the preschool child understand effective physical and emotional management with his peers. Of course, s ometimes just swinging and sliding are all children need to do and we take care of that with our state-of-the-art and age appropriate playground equipment.
Each child develops at their own pace and we encourage communication between staff members and parents on the progress of their child care. Daily reports or weekly newsletters from the classroom teachers update parents on activities, and future class projects.
