Every day brings new experiences for this age group. They learn social and emotional skills through sharing and interacting with other children. Intellectual skills are met through circle/group time, centers, story time, music, art and so much more. During center time children have the opportunity of choice to choose from activities that foster learning with puzzles, manipulative, blocks, art and dramatic play. Our programs are consistent in routines. They reinforce learned skills and introduce new ones to students throughout their day at Sunrise Learning Center.
Skills and Concepts Covered:
- Talking and Listening
- Social/Emotional Development
- Self Concept
- Small/Large Muscle Development
- Creative Expression
2 Year Olds
Constantly in motion, two year olds are determined to learn on their own. Sunrise Learning Center provides a rich learning environment that helps children expand their vocabularies, find appropriate ways to express their creativity, and safely discover the world around them. Two year olds learn by active involvement with people and by manipulative objects. Exposure to educational objectives is endless. Circle/group time are in our daily routines to enhance their environment of learning. Our program encourages individual growth and development as well as promotes a good foundation and exposure to initiate cooperative group centers (an essential for a life long learner).
3 Year Olds
Upon entering this age group, they are typically more independent in their self needs categories. Therefore, students are encouraged to develop and refine necessary fine motor skills such as writing their names, numbers, and alphabet as they display newly learned skill sand themes throughout our units of study. Enthusiasm is contagious and we encourage this always as all learners develop independently and cohesively in nature.
Many life long lessons are learned for children up through preschool. These classes enhance such learning and help the students expand their knowledge prior to kindergarten enrollment. Writing, reading, phonics, computers, and much more round out the day of this age of child. We focus on skills they will need to be successful in kindergarten. We encourage students to be engaged in lessons that develop emotional, social, and educationally developmental levels of learning throughout their day.
Schoolers (Kindergarten-5th Grade)
Our school age program encourages cooperation between students/groups as they learn from each other. We use a variation of groupings. One is called “mind stretchers” and the other is “play centers”. These centers are used to develop the students educationally, emotionally, behaviorally, and socially while enhancing cooperation skills. During the school year, transportation is provided to and from a selected number of public schools. Contact us for a list of schools that we service.
