Hello and welcome to the Kindercare program! We have been very busy over the past few weeks getting to know one another and exploring our new environments. I wanted to take a moment and post a blog about what a typical day in Kindercare looks like.
To start our day, we have a snack to energize our bodies before venturing outside until lunch. No matter the weather, we make it a point to experience the outdoors! We are fortunate enough to have many beautiful forests here in our schoolyard. We've gone on "Bug Quests", discovered fairy houses, made nature playdough and have tested our physical abilities by climbing trees.
"Let's look at every tree and see if there's a ladybug!"
"What is it!? It's an egg!"
"I'll show you how to climb"
"I made a nightstand for the fairies!"
Nature play supports our physical, emotional, and social development. Not to mention it also promotes our imagination, problem solving skills, boosts self esteem and SO MUCH more!
After lunch, the educators set up the Kinder Room for "Spa Time". "Spa Time" gives the children the opportunity to rest and relax their bodies after our eventful mornings. We play peaceful music in the background and offer individual, sensory experiences. During sensory play, I've observed that the Kinders are very focused, calm and let their creativity flow!
"I'm making a maze for the ants!"
"I'm making my birthday! Decorations!"
"This has tread"
"I made my family"
"I'm doing it backwards! I almost made the number 6!"
From 2:30-3:00pm, we make our way back outside into the fresh air again. After an engaging and energetic day of Kindercare, your child will definitely be ready for a good night's sleep!
Stay tuned for more of our adventures throughout the year!
