Activities

Learning:

inside10Your child’s day will be filled with learning ABCs, math, a great deal of science, arts and crafts which includes ceramic, foam, cork, shells, wood materials, special techniques of drawing and painting. Other activities include puzzles, physical exercises, flash cards, dramatic play and musical instruments.

Circle Time

Our circle time is totally different from others that you may have seen; we focus on feelings, basic needs and good manners as well as the diversity of people and things in life. We use age appropriate materials which, in a very simple way, can show differences in genders, races, cultures, disabilities, etc.

Gardening and Nature & Science Exploration

garden1Your child will explore nature in a cheerful setting. The entire facility is surrounded by beautiful and well kept gardens and grounds.  Hands-on gardening will be a big part of your child’s daily routine and will teach them a wonderful appreciation for nature. In our children’s garden they can take care of their own flowers, fruits and vegetables (recognized by plastic tags with their names). They learn how to appreciate and care for nature and the environment. We have fruit trees such as apricot, banana, lemon, orange, tangerine, guava, peach, berries, plum, fig, passion fruit, etc. Children will use a couple of gardening tools as well as binoculars and magnifying glasses when watching birds, lady bugs, butterflies, dragonflies, worms, caterpillars, working bees and all sorts of bugs. We also teach about recycling and composting.

Meals and Snacks

Lunch-menuDaily home cooked meals are served “family style”. We provide “special diets”, due to allergies or life style. Each child is given the options of milk, juice and water to drink throughout the day. During some snacks, basic cooking skills are taught and the children can taste their own “creations” such as cupcakes, cookies, sandwiches, lemonades, fruit salads, etc. We also pay very close attention to “good manners” that are constantly reinforced and will last a life time. Meals are served outside, in our tropical dining area.
