Clasrroom Environments

Each classroom is divided into learning centers or interest areas. The teachers set up the areas and children are free to explore each center. These centers provide self-directed learning opportunities where each child can explore their own special interests at their own pace.

 

Goals

For the Child

  1. To provide opportunities for being with other children in a Christian setting, conducive to the developmental needs of the child.
  2. To provide learning experiences and activities which help each child attain a healthy sef-concept.
  3. To provide each child with a setting and program which maximizes growth potential in the intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual areas.

For the Parents

  1. To provide parents with the security of knowing that their child is in a happy, healthy, nurturing environment.
  2. To provide parents opportunities to improve skills which promote the growth and development of their children.

Language Environment

At Tiny Treasures Early Childhood Program, we believe that language is how the children communicate, which is essential for learning. It is the foundation for listening, speaking, reading and writing.

 

Your child will be immersed in a print-rich classroom which includes such things as: flannel boards, labels, dictated stories, signs, tape stories, puppets, calendar and a book area. Through these developmentally appropriate experiences, your child will be aware of the meaningful use of language and develop a long predictable sequences for speaking, reading and writing.

 

We will involve the children in many interactions which include circle time, story time and learning centers enhancing the child’s emotional security and self-confidence. This will enable each child to build upon his/her natural tendency and an appreciation for the written and spoken language.

 

Learning Objectives

Basic objectives have been developed to promote the development of each child. The objectives are based on what is developmentally appropriate for the children. Using the objectives as a framework, the teachers develop the curriculum taking into consideration the needs of each child. Each teacher is responsible for writing and implementing lesson plans to guide their daily activities. These plans include a balance of quiet/active activities, child-initiated/teacher-directed activities and variety of learning areas. Weekly lesson plans are posted in each classroom.

 

Our Learning Philosphy

The early childhood years are exciting and powerful years for building a foundation for your child. At Tiny Treasures Early Childhood Program, we minister to the whole child: socially, emotionally, creatively, spiritually, mentally and physically. We provide effective learning experiences in Spiritual/Social Living, Communication Arts, Expressive Arts, Wellness and Discovery about the World. The experiences are fun and interesting for the children in a positive Christian climate. Our program is set up for age appropriateness. There are certain predictable sequences of growth and changes that take place in a child’s life. We recognize these stages and have prepared the learning environment accordingly.

 

Our program is also set up on individual appropriateness. Each child is a unique creation of God and with this in mind, the curriculum and interaction of adults must be responsive to individual differences. The knowledge of how children learn is important to any program. Children’s play is a vehicle for learning. Play enables children to progress along the developmental sequence. The child’s sensory experiences and self-initiated activities are an important part of their development. Hope offers a distinctly Christian program. Daily we share Christ with the children, care for them as one of God’s children and prepare them to live in God’s world. Even the youngest children have a natural appetite for learning and children do learn Christian values and moral standards at a very early age. Tiny Treasures Early Childhood Program offers excellence in education within a warm, loving, Christian environment.
