Each classroom uses a curriculum that provides a wealth of activities to help children develop their minds and bodies in a safe and healthy environment. A strong academic foundation will enrich children with the skills necessary to succeed in the school system and every phase of their lives.
All classrooms are well-organized and designed to promote a harmonious environment. Each classroom uses a daily schedule and has a routine that allows planning for individual children, small groups, and the entire class. This allows time for child-initiated and teacher-directed learning. Themed-based lesson plans provide a variety of topics for your child to explore. Monthly newsletters and calendars are posted on each Parent Information Board and online with a schedule of events. The teachers at Show Me Love Learning Academy will encourage your child daily to reach their goals.
Language development is encouraged by talking and listening to the children, reading books, story re-telling, reciting rhymes, finger playing, writing, learning children’s poetry, listening to books on tapes and CDs, and participating in dramatic play. Literacy is incorporated into the learning centers and everyday routines.
Our classrooms have a rich mathematics environment that is integrated throughout our daily activities. Our teachers are very knowledgeable about the facts and concepts needed to promote and extend children’s mathematical thinking. Our teachers focus on number concepts, patterns and relationships, geometry, measurement, and data collection. All children will be enthusiastically engaged in the love of leaning.
Science and Technology
Each child will learn science concepts needed by using their senses to observe and explore while using their thinking skills to investigate the world around them. The science concepts include earth and the environment, life science, and physical science. Children also learn about technology by exploring how things work. At the computer center, your child will learn the basic operations of the computer and will be able to learn new information while they create and explore.
Your child will learn about how people live today and how they lived in the past; they will also learn about geography. Our teachers create a learning environment that guides the children to gain experiences and skills that help them pose meaningful questions about themselves, their relationships, their communities, and their world. The teachers hold a deep respect for a child’s culture and are responsive to how culture, family, and young children weave together.
Your child’s creativity is encouraged through art, dramatic play, and music. Arts and crafts allows children to create and represent their ideas in a visual form. They have opportunities to paint, draw, make collages, build, mold play dough, and many more. In the dramatic play area, they can let their imaginations run wild while deepening their understanding of the world and develop new skills. The Music Center contributes to your child’s social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. They are encouraged to learn and make up songs, play musical instruments, and listen to recorded music. They get a chance to use their bodies to respond to music and express ideas through dance.
We strive to develop a partnership with all of our families to support each child’s development and learning. Our teachers will take their time to discuss your child with you as often as needed and during parent-teacher conferences. Parents are provided daily reports and progress reports. Show Me Love Learning Academy believes that, as a parent, you play a key role in the development of your child. It is very important that parents develop strong communication with the Academy. We ask you to partner with us as we strengthen the foundations of Early Childhood Education.
