Serenity Child Care Center exists to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for children and infants. Our main focus is to provide a stimulation early care and educational experience which promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. We provide an environment where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace. Serenity Child Care Center staff is committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement. One of our main goals is to support children’s desire to be life-long learners. Our Curriculum… Circle Time… Circle Time is a great time to have children learn to express themselves. This daily routine is integrated into the curriculum to help children incorporate listening, speaking, and taking turns. This is also a wonderful time to include time awareness, mathematics, colors, shapes, the alphabet, and much more! Study Time… Study Time is a great time for children to discover the world around them. By presenting a wide array of topics, children are more aware and open to discuss different things. Children will become more aware of the solar system, different countries, different states in the nation, and different animal groups within their world. Starting curriculum early and repetitiously encourages the growth and grasp of concepts that will further blossom in the child’s life. Don’t be surprised when your little one comes home talking about all the new and exciting things that they have discovered during their day! Potty Time… Potty Time is prompted at least every 2 hours, on the even hours of our day. Children under the age of 2 are changed every 2 hours at a minimum, but are changed whenever necessary. Children 2 and older are encouraged to begin potty training. Story Time… Story Time is a time to focus on literature with a positive character trait or moral in place. It is also a time for interactive communication. Children are asked about what the retained from the story and how to apply it to their lives. Art and Music Time… Exposure to art and music at an early age has been shown to provide measurable gains throughout a child’s life. It improves pattern matching capabilities, critical thinking, creative expression, and the ability to learn new things. It builds up the levels of self-confidence, self-esteem, motivation, cooperation, and communication in children. It helps children understand other people’s opinions and points of view as well. It helps them sharpen their problem solving and decision-making skills and gives them the possibility of really exploring their imaginations. So in a way, art and music are as important as academics in the building up or our characters. Children are encouraged to make a “big art project,” participate actively in song and dance, and have complete freedom to compose artistry at any time. Dramatic and Creative Play… Free dramatic play and creative play time are crucial to building critical social skills with peers, encouraging creative thinking, and allowing children to get lost in their imagination. Children learn to become independent by creative imaginative play. Children also learn to incorporate teamwork and team play through group oriented dramatic play. Meals and Snacks… Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks are served family style with all the children together. Each child is tasked with a responsibility to help feel included in the preparation of the meal. Children will learn and utilize proper mealtime etiquette, manners, and gestures. Examples include: napkin in lap, elbows not on the table, mouths closed while eating, use of napkin for facial cleaning, and the use of “please” and “thank you.” Parental Involvement… Parental Involvement is highly encouraged. Serenity Child Care Center offers an outline to our weekly and monthly curriculum for parents to take home. We also have a complete weekly lesson plan available for review each day you sign your child(ren) into care.
