Beyond any doubt, young children learn from experiences, actions, observations, and interactions with people and things. At Christina's Child Care, our focus is on each child's needs and development. Our program has a written curriculum based on the knowledge of a child's development.
The daily activities for the children Reflect our program's philosophy and goals. We foster independence by encouraging children to think, reason, question, and experiment. Our staff assists children in using language to deal with their feelings. Social skills are developed by learning to cooperate, help, take turns, and talk through problem solving.
Our staff will communicate with you on a daily basis regarding your child's social, emotional, educational and physical progress. Twice a year we evaluate your child in writing with a progress report and conferences are always available. We encourage you to become involved in our program by being volunteers for special events and field trips. Parents and other family members are welcomed visitors in our center at all times.
Our Pre-K students will also be involved in Reading and Math Readiness programs. Reading Readiness consists of the alphabet, phonics, vocabulary building, and sensory discrimination. Math Readiness covers number recognition, measurements, and simple addition/subtraction. Other topics covered during the Pre-K school year are community helpers, safety awareness, movement and dancing, art, computers and science. Children excel in Kindergarten with the head start they receive at Christina's Child Care Center.
