Kid-Doodles Learning Center
Our infant program provides an enriching environment designed to enhance your baby's development while allowing them to explore and learn at their own pace. We surround our "wee ones" with lots of fun music, soft toys, and lots of hugs and kisses. Our nurturing staff spend their day, talking, reading, rocking, making lots of eye contact while forming a basic trust with your pride and joy. Our main goal is to provide your baby with a secure trusting environment. Our on-going communication keeps you well informed and creates not only a bond with your baby but also a warm strong bond with you
Our Waddler group is a fun group. These children are the ones who are beginning to walk and starting to use self help skills. Waddlers are busy little learners with lots of new things to explore. We channel all that energy into things that help our Waddlers learn and grow.
Teachers lead young toddlers through age appropriate activities to improve coordination and to increase verbal and problem solving skills.
Our curriculum is based on the idea that children are naturally curious and motivated to learn. We provide them with the materials and experiences to help them understand and communicate in ways most meaningful to them
Our Toddler program allows your little ones to spend busy fulfilled days in a variety of activities that promote learning and exploration. Whether its filling containers with colored water, painting with pudding, playing with a ball, building with blocks or snuggling up with their teacher while reading a story.
Your child will be learning throughout the day. Your child will be learning both social and academic skills to help them gain confidence and independence along with trust.
Our activities include, but are not limited to, the following:
*Outside Play *Music *Tactile Awareness *Language Awareness * Discovery *Circle Time
Young Preschool- 2.5 years - 3.5 years
Our young preschooler is just learning to communicate verbally, and developing the ability to share feelings and negotiate with peers in a group setting. Teachers facilitate a classroom atmosphere where toddlers are treated as capable individuals, whose opinions, actions, and thoughts are respected and valued. Significant emphasis is placed on modeling appropriate language and behavior, in order to create a respectful environment where trust, self-esteem, autonomy, communication, and teamwork are represented.
The Reggio Emilia-Inspired philosophy is introduced, and early project work facilitates curiosity, investigation, and discovery for each child. Teachers take physical and verbal cues from toddlers in order to develop “real world” projects, allowing children to explore their surroundings in a meaningful way. Keen observation of the toddler’s responses is important so that teachers can flexibly reorganize the curriculum to promote the interests of the children. Forecasts (lesson plans) create the framework for a broad curricular experience. Children are exposed to emergent literacy, music, art, dramatic play, sensory, motor-development, science, nature, and pre-math experiences on a regular basis through project work. Educational experiences are designed to be age-appropriate and personally challenging, and the learning process is more valued than the finished product.
Preschool/Pre-K- 3.5 years- 5 Years
Our preschool program employs a Reggio-inspired, project-based approach to early childhood education. Teachers deliver an “emergent curriculum,” predicated on the emerging interests, ideas, and questions of the children. Project work provides ample opportunity for discussion, decision-making, choices, cooperation, and evaluation during the course of an investigation. Projects can last days, weeks, or even months based on the interests and enthusiasm of the children. Through these projects, teachers routinely plan and deliver a wide variety of educational experiences, which incorporate emergent literacy, music, art, dramatic play, motor development, math, nature, and science. Kindergarten readiness is emphasized by integrating state learning standards throughout ongoing educational experiences. Specialty teachers deliver additional programming such as art, music & movement, language & culture and/or fitness on a weekly basis.
