Childcare is an important part of the early years of a child's life. Creating positive relationships with childcare providers is an important part of daily business at Fremont Kid's Academy. We love how the atmosphere feels more like a family than a childcare center.

By the time children enter kindergarten they should be able to identify their letters on sight. What better way to learn them then by playing games with letters.
This particular game combines letters and motor skills for a perfect way to practice pre-kindergarten skills.
Introducing New Foods
Fremont Kid's Academy strives to provide nutritious foods for the children in our childcare program.
We love choosing snacks that are whole foods and taste great. Apricots are just one example of a typical afternoon snack on a hot summer day.
Cute As Can Be
Most of the time Fremont Kid's Academy posts pictures of childcare activities that show preschool activities or learning of some sort taking place. This particular blog is being posted just because I got the cutest picture of our two girls.
At our childcare center we all feel like family and who doesn't love to show off pictures of their kids? I just couldn't help posting this picture. We love our daycare family!
Reading time is one of the favorite parts of the day for everyone. We not only read the books but we talk about the authors that write them, what an illustrator is and how to identify the structures of a book. We learn about the book cover as well as the spine and of course we love the stories.
Hand eye coordination is a mile stone that we expect every child to meet. At Fremont Kid's Academy we give many opportunities to practice those skills because we know that they are all a precursor to writing skills.
It's also a lot of fun getting to play with cars and trains and manipulating objects of all kinds.
Attending a daycare or childcare center is a huge part of a child's daily life. It is more than an individual learning effort.
Each child learns to be part of a group and socializes with other children. Friendships are forged and play time becomes a familiar affair.
Reading And Counting
The childcare program at Fremont Kid's Academy is geared toward getting all of our students ready for kindergarten. We spend lots of time working on learning letters, words, and reading.
Many of our activities help children to identify not only the names of items but also the numbers. We practice recognizing small groups of items and large groups, as well as counting each item in the group.
Allowing and even fostering a child's attachment to a special blanket or stuffed animal is a great way to help them feel secure when their parents are away.
Leaving that special lovey at daycare with them makes the transition smoother and helps with nap time as well.
Children learning to feed themselves can be a messy endeavor but is a meaningful part of becoming self sufficient. Fremont Kid's Academy allows the children in our childcare program the freedom to experiment with feeding techniques.
We ensure they get the proper nutrition, but encourage fine motor skill refinement by allowing them to try feeding on their own first. We also encourage and support the children in helping with the cleanup process.
