Curriculum

"Our curriculum is individualized according to your child's age and classroom placement."

This program is designed to provide the opportunities for children to build self-esteem, self-confidence, and positive relationships.

Infants

Our commitment to your baby begins with a special partnership between our teachers and you, the parent. This partnership is especially important to provide the highest quality care for your infant. Together, parents and teachers develop a daily schedule to meet your child's individual needs.

Caregiver routines such as diapering and feeding are on demand. These routines are built into a schedule and carried out throughout the day. Research tells us that 90% of all learning occurs within the first three years of life. At Kidz Korner we take full advantage of this by providing planned and stimulating opportunities designed for individual children to maximize their language, cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.

Toddlers

Toddlers are encouraged to express their individual interests through interactions with each other and through hands-on environmental experiences. Our staff encourages emergent communication skills by engaging the children in conversations and helping to resolve conflicts peacefully.

Classroom teachers provide the children in their care with theme-based activities and center-based classrooms that are rich in literature. Independence is fostered throughout the day with emphasis on daily living skills like potty training and meal times.

Preschool

The preschool years are widely recognized as providing the foundation of lifelong learning. Children develop significantly in their physical, social, emotional and cognitive areas during preschool years. The adults in their lives and their environment influence all of these areas. At Kidz Korner play is promoted as the major vehicle for learning. A child's self-expression is encouraged in our music, art, dramatic play, library, block, writing and science centers. Classrooms are rich with literacy continually emphasizing preparations for upcoming school years.

Teachers provide developmentally appropriate lesson plans with emphasis on emergent curriculum. This assists with the development self-help skills and a respect for others and materials. Activities are planned to challenge, but never frustrate a child. Self-worth is gained as a child successfully masters age appropriate tasks.

 

After School

Kidz Korner offers a fun, safe, quality environment for elementary aged children. At Kidz Korner the children are engaged in a program that offers structure with choice. A typical daily schedule will include snack time, homework time, times for active and quiet play, (both indoors and outdoors) free choice and teacher directed activities. We provide a comfortable environment where children will learn to build confidence, self-esteem, character and social skills.
