Our infant classroom schedule is based on what the children need and when they need it. Feeding schedules are created by parents and caregivers and documented daily. Diaper changes are every 2 hours. Napping schedules are when babies naturally tire from a day full of listening to music, songs, and stories and observing all the activity and stimulation teachers create for them.
This classroom is for children 12 months to 24 months. They are free to explore. Riding toys, climbing toys, and outside play are daily events. Interlocking blocks, art activities, and chunky puzzles focus on fine motor skills regularly. Sitting at a table to eat, using utensils, and sippy cups are big accomplishments in this room. Language skills begin to flourish as toddlers name objects and actions. Sign language is paired with words to enhance language development.
2 year olds
This classroom is for children 24 to 36 months. Potty training is a big focus in this room. Positive reinforcement is used to teach manners, improved language skills, and recognition of colors, shapes, number, letters. Music and movement is taught daily and learning impulse control with the songs prepares them for the next classroom.
3 year olds
Academics through play is the main focus in this classroom for children 3-4 years of age. Cutting, writing, singing the alphabet, listening skills during circle time and story time are taught in this classroom. "Handwriting Without Tears" is taught so that the correct pencil grip and letter formation is learned correctly.
4/5 year olds
This classroom is for 4 and 5 year olds and prepares them for kindergarten. All classrooms follow Kentucky Early Childhood Standards. This classroom incorporates science and math in addition to continuing "Handwriting Without Tears." Individual language, fine and gross motor, and academic skills are monitored and documented as well as group/social skills.
