OUR APPROACH TO EFFECTIVE LEARNING
We give your child the tools to become confident and self-aware. In a caring and stimulating atmosphere, our passionate and engaging teachers give your child endless opportunities to grow, learn, and imagine—whether building a spaceship to blast off to Mars or inviting a new friend to share a story during group time!
While academics play a role in development, we believe there are many other opportunities for enhancing the whole child. We recognize that curriculum is more than what appears in manuals or a series of activities. We believe curriculum is everything that happens in the classroom, from interactions and meals to singing and playing. We never miss an opportunity to educate.
ALL ABOUT BALANCE
Joyful Care Children's Center teaches children life skills that go beyond reading, writing, and math.
- Playing with toys helps develop motor skills and teaches lessons about sharing with friends.
- Singing songs while washing hands instills an interest in the arts while forging social bonds and educating children about the need for good hygiene.
Each activity is designed with a specific lesson or outcome in mind.
We provide a balance between choice and structured activities, between group and individual pursuits, and between teacher and child-directed experiences.
We teach seasonally relevant lessons. For example, children learn about spiders in spring and farming in fall. And, we give families the tools to continue the education at home.
Joyful Care Children's Center offers a lower staff-to-child ratio, where teachers give individual attention to each child to help plan a childcare curriculum that meets each child’s specific developmental needs.
This ongoing daily assessment is an essential part of knowing the right type/quantity of activities that will encourage continual growth and learning. An appropriate ratio ensures your child’s unique needs will be met.
