Fremont Kid's Academy has a curriculum philosophy that includes Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Today, that curriculum is manifesting itself in a mask activity. The children in our care are using Science by learning the components that make up a face (eyes, ears, nose, etc), Engineering by putting the components in the right place, Design by creating their own representation of their face and Art by creating the whole effect. Each day includes an activity like this that uses our curriculum to influence and benefit the children.
Practicing fine motor skills by rolling out dough and using cookie cutters is an activity that children of all ages love to participate in at childcare. At Fremont Kid's Academy, we help children build on their skills everyday.
Quiet time comes in many forms, from naps to reading, to finding space that is apart from the group. Each child deserves quiet time and a pop up cozy place is a great way to ensure that the time is quality quiet time.
Father's Day is almost here and the children at Fremont Kid's Academy are getting ready to celebrate their Dads. Creating personal works of art is one of the best ways to show Dad how much he is loved.
Fremont Kid's Academy has projects planned for the children in our care everyday. All of our projects are based in the subjects of Science, Technology Engineering, Arts, and Math. Today the children are creating flower blossoms, counting petals and engineering the design of the flower fall right into Math, Engineering, Art, and Science.
Pretending to sit around a campfire and snuggle with our stuffed animal friends was on the agenda today at Fremont Kid's Academy. With summer in full swing many of the children in our care have gone camping recently and they enjoy bringing their experiences into the pretend realm.
At Fremont Kid's Academy, we strive to provide a healthy serving of education everyday. In our garden we grow more that just fruits and vegetables, we grow experience with science for the children in our care.
Fremont Kid's Academy makes reading a priority for all ages of children in our care. Preschoolers are especially encouraged to pick up books and try to recognize words. We are constantly reading to all of the children in our care and making reading time fun and exciting.
Fremont Kid's Academy encourages our youngest readers to start the word recognition process as soon as they can manage a book in their hands.
Fremont Kid's Academy emphasizes reading in our childcare program and we encourage the children in our care to pick up books at a very young age.
Playing dress up is a perfect way to exercise the imagination muscles of the children in care at Fremont Kid's Academy. Pretending to be a crocodile can be a great way to spend the afternoon.
Allowing toddlers the freedom to safely cut and paste their own projects gives them a sense of autonomy and accomplishment. Fremont Kid's Academy supports the children in our care to branch out and try new things while making sure they are safe and comfortable.
Learning about magnets is a fun activity for even children of a very young age. At Fremont Kid's Academy we include Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math in a majority of our curriculum.
These activities are scalable depending on the ages of the children in our care at the time we are doing the activity. We love teaching them and the children love learning.
Children enrolled in preschool or childcare benefit from the experience of cooperating with a group. Here they are working together to paint a picture. Each child is an important part of the whole and each child gets to express themselves as an individual within a group.
Sometimes being creative in childcare is the most fun. Today, for our art activity at Fremont Kid's Academy we used water on our paint brushes to paint the chalk boards. We found that the water turns the chalk board a deep black color. The children loved using water as paint.
Fine motor skills are so much fun to practice in childcare, from coloring to building, to playing with beads, all these activities allow children to exercise their little fingers and enhance fine motor skills.
Fremont Kid's Academy gives the children in our care many opportunities for perfecting their fine motor skills.
Allowing a child to bring their favorite lovely to childcare is a great way to ease the transition from parent to caregiver. At Fremont Kid's Academy we work with each family to ensure the smoothest transition possible for each child.
The children in care at Fremont Kid's Academy truly enjoy each other, much like the children in a large family care for each other. We are always encouraging them to play with and share with each other and when they do it spontaneously on their own, we know we have been successful.
Learning to read is a huge priority for children in preschool. The starting point for reading is being read to by others. At Fremont Kid's Academy we include reading on a daily basis into our curriculum. The children in our care love the stories and we love their enthusiasm.
Having healthy food choices in daycare is a very important part of a great parenting plan. As parents we all want to give our children the best food options but when it comes to daycare we aren't there to make sure that our children are getting complete meals and limited sweets.
At Fremont Kid's Academy we offer whole foods, milk and water, and we stay away from sweets. Each day the children in our care enjoy a variety of foods that they help prepare and serve.
We know that growing bodies and minds need great nutrition to maximize their potential.
