Garderie ET’s daily activities are geared toward helping your child develop all the skills necessary for toddlers and young school-age children.
Our daily program typically starts at 9:30am with “Circle Time,” which is meant to develop listening and conversational skills, focusing on plans for the day, upcoming events/holidays, days of the week, outdoor weather, etc.
Following circle time, each class will divide their morning between outdoor play (weather permitting) and daily lesson plans. Our outdoor play yard is equipped with a small jungle-gym and slide, balls, and large cars, all of which help develop gross-motor skills such as running, climbing, throwing, catching and balancing. Daily lesson plans include:
- educational skills (counting, number/alphabet/colour/shape recognition,
- fine-motor skills (writing, scissor-use, water table/play-dough/kinetic
- concentration skills (puzzles, memory games, story-telling)
- creativity & imagination development (drawing, painting, colouring,
singing, dancing, dress-up)
Important social skills (sharing, problem-resolution, emotion regulation), hygiene skills (hand-washing, toilet training), and basic life skills (eating and dressing independently) are a constantly encouraged throughout our daily programs.
