We currently have spaces available for children to enjoy this very personalized attention in a developmentally conducive, spacious, clean, and enjoyable childcare home. We are like a small family. Every day we play, eat, and learn together. The children develop social skills with their peers, as well as with adults. We teach them discipline in their environment, as well as a sense of self discipline. They learn not to cry when their parents drop them off. We guide the children to develop a sense of their own individuality and independence, helping them to discover their self-confidence and character.
We have a great group of people working here in the Garden. They are mothers, musicians, teachers, and most importantly, people that get along well with children and enjoy being around them. Children have strong sense for this type of person. We have a tricycle to teach very young children coordinated motor skills, which include stearing (arms) and pedaling (legs), skills that will be useful when they are ready to ride a bicylce or swim. And for the older children, well they just have a cool tricycle to ride.
Beads, puzzles, painting, colored pencil & crayon drawing. These are all fun to do. The child’s creativity is encouraged as he or she develops their hand/eye coordination and problem solving skills. Here the children are introduced to a very interactive environment, in which they can have fun watching the results of their work blossom. Children will participate in the planting and caring of the garden. Every day they will help water the garden and observe how the plants are growing. Our supervisors engage the children in light discussions about gardening, so as to teach them about plants and get them thinking about how plants grow. As part of our music curriculum, we play children’s songs and encourage our kids to dance along. Either CDs or a supervisor playing the piano, the kids really enjoy an upbeat song.
