Infants need us to embrace their physical needs. Our promise is to help create a bond so they feel safe and form a secure attachment. Infants want to know “Am I Safe?” Our promise is to establish trust by responding to their needs consistently and lovingly. Toddlers crave fun environments to help inspire them to move and help build coordination. At Phase Family Learning Center we provide opportunities to learn necessary life skills to develop confidence and reinforce the “I can do it myself” mindset. By having open-ended imaginative play, Toddlers can express emotions, build social skills and move their whole bodies.
Preschoolers want to know “What about me?” We are engaging our preschoolers with opportunities for deeper learning. Managing emotions, learning to play well with others are all part of learning to communicate, developing speaking skills, listening, reading and writing are all a huge part of language development. Preschoolers are motivated by being able to communicate with their peers. Preschoolers thrive when they are actively testing, problem-solving, building, comparing, identifying and questioning like the scientists they are. At Phase Family Learning Center our teachers prepare hands-on learning experiences and assessments through Circle Time, Classroom Centers, Enrichment Classes, and outdoor areas. Music, Movement, Dramatic Play and Art are all important activities that help preschoolers master language, pre-literacy, fine motor and social goals in fun and engaging ways.
Our Pre-kindergarten students are learning to work collaboratively toward common goals, “let’s do it together!” We are focusing on kindergarten readiness skills by strengthening our Pre-K students Gross Motor and Fine Motor skills. Our teachers intentionally use multi-sensory approaches to handwriting and motor lab activities to increase readiness. At Phase Family Learning Center we focus multiple times a day on interactive science and math principles, and emerging reading and writing skills. Our teachers guide our students to develop these emerging skills through journaling, sight words, captioning artwork, writing notes to others, and re-reading favorite, high-interest books. We consider art an experimental process too as children investigate their ideas, materials and tools, making choices and sharing their work with others.
