We provide art projects that are age appropriate with the infants, read stories, sing songs, listen to music, play with lots of developmentally appropriate toys, and just have a great time playing with them and watching them grow! In the warmer months, when time permits, we take buggy rides on the property. We get to know each child more and more as the days go by. We know that each baby is unique and special in their own way, and they are all precious to us! Together we can make your child’s time in the infant room the best experience possible.
Our toddlers will begin learning to self-feed, drink from a cup, socialize, share, take turns and learn beginning colors, shapes, and use of both fine and gross motor skills daily. We work with each family on what we think is best for the child. Toddlers are in the early stages of learning how to be independent, and it is our job to ensure that your toddler has the best learning experience here at PKK.
Two year old room
In the twos class, children are being introduced to potty training, using our words, name, number, and sound recognition, as well as self-help skills. We give ample opportunities to explore the environment around them. Two-year old’s love to be independent and we allow them to make choices, we turn every moment into an opportunity for learning and encouragement.
Three year -old room
Our three-year-old class prepares them for preschool by teaching the children social and emotional skills, how to use their words, and how to be more independent by learning to button, zip and snap. Three-year-old children are also ready to serve themselves during mealtimes, recognize their names and the names of their classmates as well as use the washroom areas with little assistance. This group has mastered gross motor skills as they love to run and climb. The three-year-old class work daily on concepts, math and science, dramatic play, and sensory development.
Our preschool class is preparing for kindergarten by working on social emotional skills, writing, pretend play, motor, and self-help skills. The children in preschool can go to the washroom unassisted, clean up behind themselves, recognize when there is a problem and tell someone if they need help. Preschool children are independent, caring, and ready to be close friends with their peers. The curriculum is more concentrated and their gross and fine motor skills are used most of the day. There are family projects and simple assignments sent home to work on with the family.
We look forward to meeting you.
