Kids Time Preschool believes that each child is unique as is his or her own way of learning. We believe that playing is a child’s work. The preschool experience should be full of new experiences and discoveries that can be made during meaningful facilitated play.
Individual care will nurture strong beginnings and support developmental growth at a comfortable pace for each child. The YMCA core values of caring, respect, responsibility and honest are incorporated into our daily routine to enhance character development. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, age appropriate environment that encourages individual growth.
To reach our goals we will use a blended curriculum including individual, small group and large group activities. We use Creative Curriculum to help us set up a rich and stimulating learning environment. Our learning areas include library/quiet area, blocks, art, table toys, sensory, math science, music and movement dramatic play and literacy. Materials are arranged so that children can easily and independently makes selections that appeal to them. Teachers thoughtfully plan activities that will enhance all areas of development: social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative.
