At Sandy's In-Home Daycare & Pre-school, we believe each child develops at their own rate, which is why assessments are completed 3 times a year. This aids to determine the skills they need to work on and the goals we can help them achieve. I follow a preschool and kindergarten skills chart to keep a record of what they can do and what they may need more help with. Since children learn a lot through art, there are daily art projects involved in the curriculum. At Sandy's In-Home Daycare & Pre-school children are encouraged to grow by being challenged regularly.
Activities are an important part of my daycare/pre-school program. They are not rigidly structured, but rather informally scheduled to meet the needs of the children. The children will be provided with toys and equipment that will foster their development physically, mentally, and emotionally. I strive to provide a variety of activities for the children such as storytime, arts and crafts, baking and cooking projects, sensory table with a variety of items for them to work with, science projects, small muscle activities such as puzzles, Duplo’s or blocks, daily outdoor play (weather permitting), large muscle activities, individual quiet time, and free play. We watch minimal TV. We also work with activities that develop creativity, imagination, and skills in recognizing colors, shapes, sizes, animals, numbers, and the alphabet. Infants are provided suitable toys that foster visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation.
