Infants

Infants: (6 weeks -24 months)

Infants first years are an exciting time with lots of exploration and discovery. Research shows that engaging infants in interactive experiences that involve sensory, motor, and social explorations build brain connections.  

 

Our focus with young babies is to build a relationship through positive responsiveness and to support their active engagement.

 

Activities are integrated across all domains of infant development—physical, emotional, social, and cognitive—and develop a wide variety of skills, including:

 

  • Language acquisition

  • Sense of self

  • Sensory awareness

  • Motor skills

  • Visual tracking

  • Self-help skills and much more!

Toddlers

Preschool/TK: (2-5 years old)

Preschool children are reaching the end of their formative years and they are reaching the age where they are able to start attending a formal educational school. 


I provide a curriculum planned by me which is mainly catered to children ages 3 through 5 years of age, called Lil Dreamers Dream Big.


Toddlers 1.5 through 2 years will use the same curriculum which will be modified and simplified to fit their developmental timetable and skill set. 


My curriculum is filled with fun hands-on activities, art, crafts, and early literacy experiences.  This curriculum is developed to ensure that children would be introduced to necessary skills and concepts needed in school.  


Activities are integrated across all domains of development—physical, emotional, social, and cognitive—and develop a wide variety of skills, including:

  • Sight words

  • Character Traits

  • New Vocabulary

  • Language Concepts

  • Math Concepts

  • Letters

  • Phonetic

  • Colors

  • Shapes

  • Numbers

  • Pre-writing

  • Pre-reading

  • Science

  • Social Studies

  • Music

  • Creative arts

  • Motor skills

  • Health

  • Self-help skills and much more!

 

As part of the curriculum we use:

 

  • Activities to help children explore new experiences, concepts, and skills.

  • Books of all types and genres to build vocabulary and language skills. 

  • Dramatic Play to expand a child's life experiences

  • Music to increase language and math ability, social behavior, and improve in spatial-temporal reasoning (problem solving).

  • Multi-sensory Toys to simultaneously use multiple pathways in the brain.

  •  Songs that facilitate language and cognitive understanding through song. 

  • A newsletter that shares with families the months theme along with subtopics, monthly core concepts, songs, conversations topics or questions to engage with your children.
