Little Wonders embraces each child’s individuality. Experienced and credentialed staff have designed a curriculum that encourages children to develop and learn according to their own learning styles, interests and development. Our curriculum provides opportunities for growth and increased independence in the following areas:
Artistic and musical expression
Infants and toddler Program
Our Infant and toddler program is designed with your child’s developmental milestones in mind. Infants and toddlers grow and develop quickly and Little Wonders staff work together to develop activities that help to encourage and enhance these newly developing skills. The small teacher to child ratio allows our staff to assess each child’s development and to communicate any delays or concerns regularly with parents.
As children grow into active toddlers our staff add activities that encourage independence as they prepare the students to move on to the Pre-School program. Art activities, music and movement and outdoor play are added to the curriculum. Students are encouraged to sit at the table during art, snack and meal times. Teachers use basic sign language to encourage young and non-verbal toddlers to express their wants and needs.
Pre-Kindergarten Readiness Program
Our Pre-Kindergarten readiness curriculum is designed to further develop a child’s feeling of independence, exploration and discovery as they prepare to enter Kindergarten. Teachers plan lessons and activities that are developed around monthly and seasonal themes with an emphasis on learning and problem solving through both indoor and outdoor play and learning center activities. Students are introduced to concepts that include, but are not limited to: art, music and movement, science, math, citizenship, health and nutrition and reading and language development. Basic Spanish and sign language concepts further enhance our themes and curriculum concepts.
Our before and after school program provides a safe place for school-age children to be if parents work schedules extend outside or beyound school operating hours. Children are provided opportunities to complete homework assignments, have a snack, be creative, play games and relax with friends. Arrangements can be made for additional care for half-days, school holiday and weather closures or delayed openings. A daily summer camp program is also available for students who have completed Kindergarten through age 12.
