Planning a Developmentally Appropriate Program for Children
During preschool, kids experience structured time together that is both fun and educational. In our preschool they learn how to bond with their peers, follow directions and stick to a schedule; all skills that prepare them for school. For children with special needs, there are certain pre-school activities that work particularly well to keep them engaged, focused and actively learning. Here are two lessons that helps children with special needs, both in the classroom and at home, get the most out of their learning experiences. Sensory tables offer a wealth of benefits for children with special needs. Engaging in sensory experiences like running fingers through dried rice or pouring water can distract and calm a child who is feeling over-stimulated or anxious. It promotes self –discovery and encourages a child to explore new textures which in turn supports social and emotional development. The second lesson is light box its a fun and mesmerizing for all children, but it specifically helps to increase the attention spans of children with special needs. Children can spend hours with a light box, exercising their fine motor skills by creating illuminated patterns and pictures with brightly colored transparent shapes. Even better, this easy homemade version works great in a home or classroom. Be sure to have plenty of brightly colored transparent items on hand like decorating rocks, plastic blocks and even colored salt/sand.
Keeping children healthy, nutritional and safety is one of the most important tasks for daycare center providers. Whether children are in the center- or home-based care, providers are responsible for ensuring safety both indoor and outdoor. It’s highly important to enhance this three things that are will help center to develop and maintain the daycare center and letting the child grow in an appropriate way to develop their skills and stay healthy.
To help save our beautiful planet our center will communicate with parents via email. This will include daily newsletters, upcoming event, update and pictures of the children. Our main aim is to see success of our children as they blossom to be a beautiful educators and person.
