Please review the list of programs offered by Minds N Motion below.
In our two year old program, we start to introduce more academic concepts and promote more independence. The program is based on a weekly theme, number and letter. Our program also provides opportunities for children to learn through play, art and music. Within this program children are taught letter recognition, shapes, sounds and number recognition. An important aspect of this program is that it focuses on independence through potty training and language development. To help develop language skills, Teachers read to the children throughout the day and encourage them to explore their environment through play. Children are encouraged to develop a sense of independence. They are nurtured through hugs and words of encouragement.
As children progress from the two year old class to the three year old class, their program becomes more structured and focused on academic skills and social growth. Nurturing is still an important component in helping the children be emotionally healthy. Once again, this program is based on a weekly theme, number and letter. The three-year-old program provides time for free play, outside play, art and music. At this age, field trips are to provide for the children to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom. the program also starts to provide field trips for the children to reinforce the concepts they are learning in the classroom.
Our preschool program serves children from 4 years to 5 years of age. Teachers act as guides and facilitators of learning, while the children spend most of their time involved in "hands-on" activities. We believe academic learning is most effective when it is playful and exploratory. Our teachers in this program, skillfully weave in academic goals and objectives as they build on what children can do. They challenge them to try new things. Children contribute their own ideas and use their own problem-solving strategies to explore the world around them.
Our School Age Program serves children from Kindergarten through 5th grade. After school, holiday, and summer camp activities include field trips, arts and crafts, games, and more. Assistance is given for homework when appropriate. Creativity and independence characterize this age. The Minds N Motion teachers arrange activities to help nurture these skills.
During the long summer months, children need a place where they can have fun while out of school. At Minds N Motion, we provide a full time Summer program. This program is offered the entire time the children are out of school.There are scheduled summer fun activities and games and field trips.
