During these early months, a child needs to feel secure. At Little Village your child will find a safe, loving, and nurturing environment in which to spend the day. Children will have teachers who are aware of a child’s individuality and will provide the safety and security which is needed.
During this middle period of infant development a child is ready to explore through creeping & crawling, sitting, standing & walking, and early language. Your child will find a classroom filled with things to explore and plenty of space for movement. These older infants will often play in the large muscle room.
During this stage of development it’s all about ME. Your child is learning a sense of who he is and how she is connected to others. Children are given the chance to discover what they can do, how to express themselves, and how to make choices. Children will be able to identify with the world around them. Your child’s teacher will help them with the challenges which toddlers face in a social setting and within the give-and-take of a classroom.
This is the first step in your child’s educational path. We build a foundation for a meaningful early learning experience through relationships, communication, and our inviting classroom environments. Your child will be exposed to appropriate Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies skills. Each day the curriculum is enhanced with a special, such as art or music.
Parent involvement is welcome and encouraged. We share your child’s education experience in a variety of ways; through reports cards, parent/teacher conferences, classroom volunteering, and family activities.
The primary goal in this class is to ensure that your child is well equipped to enter kindergarten. We have designed and implemented meaningful curricula and learning experiences which will ease this transition. Our teachers follow The Early Learning Content Standards set forth by the Ohio Department of Education.
We encourage parents to visit when they can, to share their special skills and interest with the children and, as always, we communicate with our parents through report cards, parent/teacher conferences, and regular family activities.
Escape to a world of imagination, creativity, and fun. Each day is filled with games, crafts, stories, and more. This program gives children a chance to explore a new theme every week of the summer. We have a variety of visitors come to the center for in house field trips to enhance our summer curriculum.
