I believe children should have fun! After all, even the experts agree that preschool age children learn most through play. These carefree years are so short, and soon the children will be exposed to a much more structured form of learning. During the month, many activities take place which help promote basic skills (letter & number recognition, color & shape recognition, large motor skills, small motor skills, etc.).
I incorporate preschool curriculum into our daily activities for fun and to prepare the older children for school
During the interview you will receive a checklist which covers requirements for enrollment. This must be followed in order to enroll your child. All paperwork must be received before your child may start. Before you leave your child the first day, it is wise to make a visit with the child during my regular day care hours (mornings are best, since the children sleep in the afternoons). This way your child gets to see what happens in day care and gives him/her a chance to meet the other children and me. This visit is a good time to bring any items you need to leave here (e.g., pull ups, extra clothing, etc.) I am required to have a complete change of clothes for each child. If you or your child is very uneasy about day care, at least two visits are recommended: the first during my off hours when your child will not be overwhelmed by the other children, and will have all the toys available to him/her. During this time I will be able to give your child my undivided attention. The second visit could be during regular day care hours.
