The philosophy at Beginnings is one of a multi-sensory, hands-on approach to learning. It is our goal to educate and prepare the whole child, not just in the academic sense but on a social, emotional, physical and spiritual level as well.
Through our weekly themes the children expand their view of the world around them. Kindness, consideration of others, manners and respect are developed throughout the age levels. Building a positive self concept in each and every child is essential to the child’s success and well being. Children at all age levels are taught science, art, music, drama and social studies which are woven throughout the curriculum.
The toddler class ranges in age from12-24 months. For most of the children this is their first exposure to a group setting. The teachers are particularly loving and nurturing with them as they adjust to their new environment. Some of the areas of focus are on language development, self-help skills, fine and gross motor development, social skills, cooperative play, listening, and following directions. Throughout the day the children enjoy music, art, dance, being read to, carpet and center play, all under the watchful eye of the teachers. The toddler area of our lovely outside playground has swings, a sand table, climbers and plenty of open grassy space for them to play ball and run.
