What's New for Caring Corner

Preschool Activities

Our monthly theme for December is “cultures”! This week our classes focused on the color blue, shape trapezoid, letter “N”, and number 4.

Kitten’s class: During activity time this week the toddlers worked on “N” for nice, trapezoid stamps, and very adorable Santa handprints! The kittens played with colorful sensory bottles and sang jingle bells while dancing with scarves.

Monkey’s class: During activity time the monkey’s class worked on blue snowflakes, trapezoid crafts, and tracing the number four. The monkeys played with musical instruments making their own Holiday music!

Cubs/Rabbit’s class: During activity time this week the Cubs and Rabbits worked on blue paper plate whales, trapezoid Christmas trees, and “N” for nest. The cubs and rabbits learned a new song called “I’m a little reindeer! For the number four they worked on a number worksheet practicing their number tracing.

Food from home: If you bring food for your child please hand to one of the staff so we can give it to your child.  If it’s placed in your child’s cubie we don’t know it’s there.

Signing in: Please ensure that you are signing your child in and out every day.  Thank you!

Parties and Really sad and disappointed children :( We have had to explain several times recently why some kids have not received party invitations.  The staff have handled this great!  However, it is sad.  In order to avoid this, we are asking families to place party invites in the Preschool work folder under the appropriate child’s so that the card goes from parent to parent.

Milestone Tracker: Center for Disease Control has a new FREE Milestone Tracker app today. Milestones matter! The app will provide you a summary of your child’s milestones to share; activities to help your child’s development; tips for what to do if you become concerned. It is located at: https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/milestones-app.html

Welcome To Caring Corner Preschool and Childcare!

 

As a parent myself, I understand it can be a difficult time choosing a childcare
that we are comfortable with and I realize that a loving and positive atmosphere is
important to your family. We are proud to offer your family high quality care. At
Caring Corner Preschool and Childcare, your child is able to build a relationship
with myself as well as my staff. We don't have a lot of staff turnover here, so your
child knows who will be caring for them day after day. This helps children be more
secure in their environment.

Our primary goal is to support each child in a safe and loving environment that
builds self esteem, encourages living skills, and actively promotes each child's
sense of curiosity and discovery.

We believe that children learn through play in a structured environment. We
provide both teacher initiated activities and also encourage child initiated activities.
We have an four different classrooms based on children’s ages that provide plenty
of space for learning activities such as manipulative, blocks, arts and crafts,
reading area, imaginative play, and so much more. We also have a large outdoor
play area that provides opportunities for learning and large motor activities. There
is a covered area that allows children to play outside no matter what the weather
conditions are.

I know in the past when my own kids have been in childcare, the one that you
choose truly makes all the difference in the world! It truly does make it much
easier on everyone involved if you as a parent can go to work and not worry all day
long about your child! So again, thank-you for your interest and if you have any
questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
