Activities Parents Can Do At Home

Letter Recognition

Building those early literacy skills is of tremendous help to your child when they enter school. Recognizing letters is just a part of it. They need to know the sounds those letters make. Enunciate when you talk to them. Have them slow down and pronounce the words correctly. Model for them how to form their mouths to make the proper sound.

Color Recognition

OH, the colors of the world. Go for a walk, how many colors can your child find? What color is the food they eat? What color is their favorite shirt? What color makes them feel happy, sad? Help them to notice the depth of color and its many shades. What is tint? Practice mixing colors to see what all new colors your child can come up with.

Number Recognition

Learning to count is the beginning of building a strong math foundation. Recognizing a number helps the child learn to associate that number with a quantity. The more practice the better they become. It's not enough to recite numbers in numerical order. Number recognition is the equivalent of math literacy... reading numbers.

Shape Recognition

What's the first oval that pops in your mind? Could it be an egg?? Can you draw a box? How many triangles can you find on a trip to the grocery? How many shapes can you make from a watermelon? What shape is your favorite swimming pool? The more shapes you point out in the child's environment the quicker they learn.

At Kidz World Childcare, Inc. we have a strong desire to educate the children and prepare them for a successful entry into school. In order to accomplish our mission, we utilize the Creative Curriculum. It is a tool for providing qualiraing for early childhood development.

From the Creative Curriculum:

More than ever, it’s important for your child to have the right set of skills to succeed in school and life. Your child’s early years, from birth through third grade, are the foundation for their success in school and life, and research shows that children benefit most from a high-quality learning experience.

A high-quality learning environment is:

Research-based | Developmentally Appropriate | Adaptive to meet the needs of every child.

High-quality requires the use of a curriculum based on comprehensive early learning standards that address the whole child while remaining developmentally appropriate. And that’s exactly what you’ll find with The Creative Curriculum.

Support the whole child.

Go beyond the traditional definitions of academic success, to focus on what works best for children.

The whole child approach provides children with a foundation that supports a lifelong love of learning, ongoing adaptability, and future success.  By promoting a child’s long-term development and growth, this approach ensures children are not only educated, but healthy, safe, supported,
challenged, and engaged.
