The Ana’s Kids curriculum is a planned program of thematic units. Each theme is built upon a series of hands-on activities, which are integrated throughout all subject areas and learning centers. Children will learn math, science, vocabulary, and social skills.
All 3-5 year old are eager to learn new things. At Ana’s Kids, we allow them to do so through teacher and peer interaction, in both large and small groups.
Areas of development:
- Social and Emotional Development: Teachers encourage the children to play a responsible role in the classroom community. Children will learn to solve problems by using words. At Ana’s Kids activities are designed to increase children’s independence, and allow them to become more confident in their abilities.
- Cognitive Skills: Teachers at Ana’s Kids focuses on math and science tasks, which are vital school readiness skills. Children will be introduced to patterning, classifying, and identifying shapes. The teachers will provide many hands-on opportunities for children to explore colors, animals, plants, and other important science topics.
- Language and Literacy: Children experiment with different letter sounds and start to explore characters and story plots. At Ana’s Kids the goal is that before the age of 5, children can recall parts of a story, use future tense, begin to tell stories, and can say their name, age, gender, and address.
- Physical Development: Ana’s Kids provides a fundamental education on the value of a healthy lifestyle, children will engage in daily stretching, walks to the playground, climbing, balance and fine motor skills activities including but not limited to the use (child size) scissors, assemble puzzles, stalk objects, etc.
