CURRICULUM AT A GLANCE

  • Building Independence
  • Spanish, Physical Education and Art
  • Music and Science
  • Early Reading and Writing
  • Two Great Curriculums: Creative Curriculum and The Kindness Curriculum

Active listening is a key component when working with Preschoolers. This allows the children to verbalize their feelings and opinions. This supports their development of empathy, helps diffuse emotional situations and lets the children know that they are an important part of the class. Our teachers will provide a balance of both support and encouraging independence to build confidence in problem solving and building relationships. With the introduction of the Kindness Curriculum at the Preschool level, children receive lessons focused on respect, kindness, empathy, and self control.

Preschoolers are typically walking and running well by this stage, however learning balance and physical awareness is essential. Our teachers will be seen using games, personal space activities, and fine and gross motor activities to help the children build on their physical abilities.

At this stage of development children continue to question the world around them. The observations, inquiries, and interactions they experience give them opportunities for new interests and understanding new concepts. Our teachers enrich their classrooms with picture/text combinations which develops their reading and writing skills. Playing games using words, letters, and sounds promotes a love for language and makes reading and writing fun.

Preschoolers are still mastering their skills of staying focused for long periods of time. Our classrooms encourage routines and predictability so they can relate to their environment and build on their confidence and character. Role playing is a great way for preschoolers to relate to the real-world but also understand their surroundings. Our classrooms are set up to encourage play and socialization so the children can bring daily routines such as cooking, reading, experimenting, and creating to life. This also helps the children build their relationships with friends and problem solving skills.

Creating environments that are rich in text is the best way for a preschooler to begin to associate their environment with print. Mastering letter sounds and sound combinations supports their growth in being able to independently identify and write letters or words. Creating lists, reading books, writing cards, and even playing restaurant are activities you will find in our classrooms to help build on their early reading skills.

Finding new ways to encourage the children to count and problem solve encourages math concepts. It also teaches the many different ways math skills are used throughout the day. You will find our teachers exploring collections, developing patterns, solving puzzles, and doing sequencing activities. During our Morning Meetings, children will practice their days of the week, months of the year, and even count all of their days in school!

As a former childcare provider, I had a lengthy checklist of requirements and expectations when looking for a daycare for my son. The moment I walked in, I knew Magic Memories would meet all those items on my list and so much more. I am so blessed to be able to send my child into a loving and welcoming environment where he is cherished and nurtured by all of the fabulous staff. Thank you Magic Memories for providing my family with so much more than just childcare.
