Early Child Care Programs

Greatness Begins Here

We are rooted in the teaching of the bible, with a focus on academic excellence. We are more than a daycare or childcare facility in our ability and passion to educate young minds.  Our director here at the Creative Learning Center has put together an incredible staff focused on excellence in safety, cleanliness and curriculum.

Infants

Here at Creative Learning Center, we will provide your child with a loving and nurturing environment. All of our infants receive individual feedings and attention. Each child is fed and takes naps according to his/her established routines. They will begin to discover their environment through all of their senses. We will provide auditory, visual and sensory learning. Creative Learning Center’s program has many advantages at an early age. Children begin learning sign language, colors, and shapes in our infant classrooms. They learn sign language with over 60 signs and many shapes and colors. This helps increase their vocabulary when they are ready to speak, as well as helping to lessen any frustrations in learning to speak and gain confidence within themselves. Our children also are taught that they are special, loved and one of a kind. We encourage self-discipline, self-knowledge, independence, enthusiasm for learning, and intellectual stimulation. Our program is designed to give each child as much contact as possible with their caregivers to encourage emotional, intellectual and physical development.

Sign Langauge

Children can begin communicating at an early age through sign language. Infant sign language allows the infant to express what he or she needs without having to vocalize. It is likely that your infant could know over 50 signs before they reach a year in age.

Skills Development

It is important that an infant develops their fine and gross motor skills by picking up small objects and eating by themselves. Gross motor skills develop when we work on tummy time or begin to crawl, then walk.

Stimulation Exercises

The first year is the most important time in a child’s life. This is when they are developing the most. We introduce sensory, visual and auditory stimulations to help our infants learn different sounds, develop their eye sight, and begin to understand different textures.

Language Development

Language Development is important in the beginning stages of life. This is the foundation of a child’s learning abilities for their future. They must be able to vocalize or write what they are wanting to express. We use animal alphabet friends for our children to learn the basics of the English language, the alphabet.

Social Skills

At this age, children are being introduced as friends for the first time. Therefore, it is important for them to know how we should treat friends and fellow classmates. We believe redirection is the biggest key to disciplining at this age.

Bible Time

Bible time is the most important part of the day. It is the first subject that is taught at the beginning of every day. Children get to learn the love of Jesus through our Bible Time. Lessons are presented through the telling of stories in the Old and New Testaments. We teach the Word of God through heart, soul, and mind.

Preschool

We have a Christian based curriculum that helps children advance for their future academic success. We have the following schedule: science, reading, Biblical life lessons, art, math, sign language, writing, and cultural appreciation. The staff in the preschool room will keep an assessment portfolio of daily activities, photos, art projects and classroom assignments. The portfolios are stored for fall and spring parent-teacher conferences, but parents are able to view their child’s portfolio at any time. Our preschool program is designed to support and guide the independence your child exhibits. By providing structure and positive guidance through out the day, they will learn to share, get along with others, and perform tasks that require longer attention spans. They will begin using a specialized curriculum, expanding their knowledge and preparing them for our Kindergarten program.

Habits and Procedures

Habits and procedures are established within the first two weeks of the school year. It is designed to have teachers build the foundation of their classroom. Appropriate classroom habits and procedures produce a classroom conductive to effective learning. Character development visuals and health & safety are used to promote positive behavior.

Phonic and Numbers

We begin counting and understanding numbers in this program. We count all day long the friends we have in the classroom, how many vegetables are on our plates, and prepare to move onto adding and subtracting those numbers. Children learn to count up to 30 and learn concepts of up to 15. We also begin letter recognitions and the pronunciation of every letter.

K4

Our Kindergarten for four-year-olds program creates an environment that encourages curiosity and offers challenges to stimulate development. As your child enters our preschool program, expect to see them learning and progressing rapidly. Our program will encourage your child to challenge themselves with a balance of Bible, Habits and Procedures, Independent Art, Language Development, Large Group Activities, Science and Sensory, Music and Movement, Library and Literacy, Manipulatives, Dramatic Play, Numbers, Phonics and Writing.

Phonic and Numbers

Phonics and numbers are a big part of the Kindergarten (four) program. In this class, when it comes to phonics, children are laying the foundations for the road to reading. By the time children finish our program they are blending vowels and consonants together, reading one to two vowel words, and recognizing familiar words. Handwriting plays a big part for this age as well. Children learn to write all letters of the alphabet, and their names. Numbers work in many different ways. They learn everything from counting by 2’s, 5’s, 10’s to simple addition. Counting up to 100 and being able to recognize 1-25 is the minimum of what will be brought to the table.

Language Development

Language Development provides a delightful way for children to expand their language skills as they learn new vocabulary words, increase listening skills as they hear new information and then answer questions, and strengthen motor skills as they participate in fun games and activities. By learning about the world around them, children will develop an appreciation for God.
