Our Daily Focus

Learning & Creativity


Art allows children to make choices. Children do not need to make a finished product to learn from art.  For young children, what they are doing is most important, not what they are making. Art is a process. Art should be a time to allow the child to express  ideas and experiment with materials.


Music has so many benefits for developing children and here are five benefits.

1. Music increases toddler’s sensory development. 2. Music can improve literacy and 

numeracy. 3. Music is a mood lifter. 4. Music helps toddlers build coordination. 5. Music can help toddlers develop their vocabulary.

Outside Play

 Studies show children burn more calories outdoors by  helping to prevent obesity, and strengthening bones and muscles. Playing in the sun builds vitamin D in the body, which means stronger bones and less likelihood of chronic diseases.

Social Skills Ms. Laura.png

Social Skills

Good social skills allow kids to enjoy peer relationships.  The benefits of robust social skills reach far beyond social acceptance. Children with better social skills are likely to reap immediate benefits. For example, one study found that good social skills may reduce stress in children who are in daycare settings.

Sight Words

Sight words are words that should be memorized to help a child learn to read and write. Learning sight words allows a child to recognize these words at a glance — on sight — without needing to break the words down into their individual letters and is the way strong readers recognize most words.


Children develop math concepts and skills very early in life. From the moment they are born, babies begin to form ideas about math through everyday experiences and most importantly, through interactions with trusted adults. Language—how we talk with infants and toddlers about math ideas such as more, empty, and full—matters.

Math is everywhere!



At the heart of good manners is a respect for oneself and others. Good manners convey a sense of respect for the sensibilities of other people.  Good manners also show that a child listens to his parents and does what he is taught – these are good character traits that teachers and other authority figures appreciate. Manners convey quite a bit of information!

Reading and storytelling help toddlers learn about sounds, words, and language. Reading stories stimulate imagination, develops social skills, and help toddlers learn about the world.
