Our curriculum is purchased from Funshine Express.
We believe kids explore the world around them through their five senses (touching, tasting, listening, smelling, and looking). We incorporate these five senses into our learning activities both indoors and outdoors.We believe that “positive play” experiences are the foundation for a Child’s Academic success in the future. In addition, we also strive to connect children to nature and the outdoors by incorporating gardening, nature exploration, and outdoor activities.
Our classroom is divided into several learning centers that are specifically tailored to the needs of the preschool aged child. Our centers encourage the development in gross and fine motor skills, language and early literacy skills, creative arts, and social and emotional development. Our learning centers include a building center, a dramatic play center, a library center, a gross motor skills area, fine motor skills area, community art table, and themed sensory activities.
At All Smiles Family Childcare we recognize the importance of the learning environment as the “third teacher”. Therefore, we went above and beyond the guidelines for furniture and cleaning products for a childcare facility. We have carefully chosen all of our furniture, toys, games, puzzles, art materials and cleaning products with your children’s health in mind. We have purposely stayed away from plastic toys and substituted wooden toys with non-toxic finishes where we can. If we need to use plastics, we have chosen plastics that have been proven safe for children and easily recycled.We take pride in the fact that we only use all natural products to clean our childcare center.
