About the Provider

Description: Children are learning all the time not only when they are engaged in planned activities. While activities provide learning opportunities, they are not more valuable than routines and interactions. With this understanding, we offer unstructured, enjoyable experiences that foster natural development. Activities are mostly open-ended and emphasize process over product. Children are free to choose which activities they want to participate in and are offered encouragement to try new experiences. Children are engaged in discovery of the properties of materials and items in their environment. They need repeated experiences before they are able to use materials symbolically. At Little Feats, children have many opportunities to pursue in-depth investigations of materials. Only with this kind of knowledge can they begin to use materials to represent their world and express themselves symbolically. The teachers are aware of each child throughout the day and how the childs day flows. They will let children figure things out for themselves whenever it is constructive to do so and will become more actively involved when it seems appropriate. We are helping children learn to exert control over their own bodies and to solve their own problems. This applies to social skills as well as cognitive and physical areas. Children feel good when they know they have some control over themselves and have an impact on their environment.
