Kids Connection offers structured and unstructured activities daily, with plenty of opportunity to make new friends and have fun.
Children are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities including craft, special events, sharing, imaginative center play, circle time, sensory table activities, field trips, letter and number identification, creative movement in the dance studio and games, sports and skill development in the gym.
Our programming allows children the opportunity to develop and use new talents, skills and interests that will assist them when they enter the school system. Early literacy and language skills are explored by combining name recognition activities, letter of the week program, special helpers, reading and listening centers and themes related the world around us offer the opportunities to learn about a variety of topics and calendar activities.
Social and emotional learning is explored daily in our classroom. Children have the opportunities to choose learning centers to play in with other classmates, sensory tables open up the chance to explore varied textures and materials while sharing the experience with their peers. This time is a fantastic time to discover how to share and empathize with others in the classroom.
Creative experiences occur regularly in our program. Unstructured art and craft times allow everyone the opportunity to try out new materials and let their imagination soar. Our centers are designed to allow the children a chance to play creatively using their imaginations to create their own experiences and their own worlds.
Physical growth and skill development are a huge part of our program. Physical literacy is the ability for children to learn the skills necessary for success in being active for life. It is as important to a healthy growth and development as the ABC’s are important to literacy and learning for life. According to the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, being active can help young children maintain a healthy weight, improve movement skills, have fun and feel happy, develop self-confidence and improve learning and attention. We focus on building those necessary skills such as hopping, jumping, skipping, catching, throwing and balancing.
