a licensed family childcare and educational program for toddlers and preschoolers ( 15 months- pre-K) in West Hartford, CT. At Yelena’s Educational Place, we encourage our students to learn about the world around them and the community they live in. All children benefit from exposure to the world at large, as long as the exposure and experience are in line with their developmental ability to engage in an activity. For younger children, this might mean a walk to the Fire Station or to the mailbox to mail their friend a letter or a buggy ride around the neighborhood. This provides much opportunity for language development as their teacher speaks to them about the things that they see as they go. At our program we have interest learning areas or centers: blocks/cars, dramatic play, sensory, art, music and movement, manipulative and outdoor play.The Creative Curriculum that we employ at our program is one that actively involves parents in their child's learning process by providing tools that extend the lessons of the day into the home at night. Another aspect of teaching we have tied into our program is based on the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards (CT ELDS) which serve as the foundation for supporting all young children in Connecticut, no matter where they live, play and learn. The CT ELDS are statements of what children from birth to age five should know and be able to do across the earliest years of development. We believe that each child possesses a marvelous capacity to learn. Learning is best accomplished in a place that is emotionally secure, nurturing, physically safe and fun! We create a sense of home away from home for your child, with lots of room to grow.
