Next Generation Day Care
We have a large learning and play area with an unimaginable variety of toys and learning aids.
We have an ever-growing library of
flash cards, posters, games, puzzles,
and manipulatives for children
from birth to 7 years of age or more.
If you can think of something
a child would need to
learn, play or grow…we have it!
I use a variety of Montessori tools and Melissa & Doug brand toys
as well as a lot of my hand crafted learning tools!
We have a large back yard with a small swing and slide for toddlers and a large swing set and slide for preschoolers.
We have tricycles, balance bikes,
bicycles, and more.
From a few months old on, your child will start learning sign language and letter sounds and number quantities.
Your toddler will start learning
the words for things more and more
as he/she grows.
Toddlers will learn to
say more and more words
and learn to manipulate
toys and learning tools with their hands
to develop their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills.
Learning the Alphabet!
From the Beginning
As a newborn up until a child can verbalize, your child will be surrounded by visuals of the alphabet and the sounds of other children learning the alphabet and reading skills.
Your child will start out by
FIRST learning the alphabet SOUNDS before they learn the names of the letters, which is vital in developing and early ability to read.
Once that is mastered
they will graduate onto combining 2 letter sounds phonetically.
They will also learn the American Sign Language alphabet sounds.
They will play with magnetic letters,
play letter games and do activities so that they
associate pleasure and fun with learning and letters.
Phonics and Reading!
Literacy starts at an early age!
A Perfect Beginning
They will progressively learn
(consonant paired with a short vowel)
through the whole alphabet.
Then they will learn 3 and 4 letter words.
They will learn to identify sight words
(words that can't be sounded out phonetically).
They will match word cards with objects
around the house and more.
For All Ages
STORY TIME is a constant in my day care
and is done with great characterization
as well as encouraging questions
and interaction so that they
fully engage in this activity!
I want them to not only learn from it
but learn to create and imagine and
associate great pleasure and joy from reading.
This encompasses a plethora of cognitive development!
This is a vital tool in nurturing
a child's love of reading!
As Your Child Grows
Of course as the child progresses,
there will be activities, games
and workbook fun
that will encourage
and develop further reading
and writing skills.
