~ Preschoolers ~
Preschoolers are a funny bunch!
They are naturally curious, temperamental, lovable and very eager learners~
This age requires an age appropriate environment that supports their natural curiosity and need to learn about the world around them.
Setting the stage for future academic success begins in the preschool years
Christa's Kids uses a play based curriculum that meets the needs of ALL children enrolled. However at the preschool age, most kids begin to show an interest in a more structured learning environment that focuses on the academics they will experience throughout their school years.
During the week, I will offer those children a developmentally appropriate curriculum that will begin the foundation for life long learning. These activities align with FCCERS (Family Child Care Environmental Ratings Scale) as well as area school readiness requirements.
What is FCCERS?
The Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale is an internationally recognized evidence based quality improvement tool specifically designed for the family child care environment.
FCCERS focuses on 7 different areas which include:
- Space and Furnishings
- Personal Care Routines
- Language and Reasoning
- Program Structure
- Provisions for Parents and Staff
Meaningful learning occurs when children have time to choose from a variety of developmentally appropriate activities with a teacher who brings learning out of play.
My goal is to make sure each student meets or exceeds the requirements of Kindergarten readiness as set forth by area school districts,
