2.5 YEARS OLD — 4 YEARS OLD
CHILD/STAFF RATION IS 8:1
What an important time to encourage a love of learning and exploration. Our little seedlings are growing strong roots in many areas so a variety of learning centres are available daily in our preschool classroom to nurture enthusiasm and develop a positive attitude towards learning. Each child develops their problem solving/decision making by having the choice to practice different skills through play and academic activities such as science, sensory (learning to predict and problem solve), creative arts (developing colour recognition and fine motor skills), mathematics (learning shapes, sizes, spatial relations), language and literacy (letter recognition, pre-reading) and dramatic play.
Our planned activities are posted weekly and based on children’s interests and age appropriate areas of development. Individual and group activities continue to build on social and self-help skills in addition to academics and play based learning. Extra activities are offered such as music class and computers in the classroom.
Homemade hot lunches and two snacks and sleep/rest time are offered daily. Sleep and/or rest time are also scheduled during their stay at Sprouts.
The Preschoolers also have the opportunity for two outdoor play periods daily to ensure their physical development and to take advantage of that very beneficial fresh air and sunlight.
Thank you for the care you provide and for always being so friendly and nice. You make coming to daycare a wonderful experience.
