Transition From Childcare to School
At Creative Childcare, we place a strong focus on ensuring that all of our children are presented with opportunities to practice life skills. We nurture life skills that will help children succeed in school and later in life. Our core mission is based on the firm belief that a child’s initial learning can propel him or her to ever greater heights. Creativity
We teach children to develop strong expressive communication skills through music, storytelling, movement, arts, imagination and play. Creativity plays a significant role
in a child’s development. Children become more confident when they can create something with their own hands.
When kids paint or draw, they begin to explore a myriad of ideas. But they must choose one of those ideas and transform it into a piece of expression. The selection process improves children’s analytical and problem-solving skills. Drawing and painting encourage the positive development of excellent motor skills. These skills are useful in day-to-day chores, and they enable children to focus and concentrate. Wellness
At Creative Childcare, we have programs that support each child’s emotional, mental and social wellbeing. We also have hygiene and physical movement programs. Children develop perfect emotional intelligence when they interact with loving and appreciative people, and teachers have the responsibility to use words and gifts to nurture positive emotions in children.
Educators also achieve this by smiling, displaying delight, and warmly welcoming children to school. There are outdoor programs that encourage children to take a proactive role in exploring and discovering. We have programs that enable children to explore and utilise all their senses. Core
Our programs help children develop emergent reading
, writing, listening skills, language, numeracy, science, mathematical and gross motor skills. Proficiency in pre-academic processes can positively impact many aspects of a child’s life. The main benefit is that it enhances a child’s academic performance later in school. Children who get core training are likely to finish school, go to college, and get a high-paying job. Learning to read and write unleashes a child’s potential and opens new avenues for self-expression. On the other hand, children who are not exposed to core development programs may go on to struggle with their academic career, or even drop out of school. Life skills
We offer programs that enable children to regulate themselves, understand their emotions, and develop positive socialising skills. These life skills assist in creating friendships, building trust in others, seeking help when needed, and working through social problems if they arise. Discovery
Discovery includes exploring science, technology, engineering, and mathematical concepts. While these may not be evident through set tasks such as worksheets, children can explore these concepts through hands-on experiences such as measuring and weighing, sorting and categorising. These experiences strengthen individual cells within the child’s brain and create vital communication pathways. The paths increase a child’s appetite for inquiry, as well as new ideas and experiences. Literacy
Literacy activities occur via group times, singing songs, reading stories, book corner, online research, and interactions with peers and adults around them. We help young children develop early literacy skills
by using several practices developed by early childhood experts. Our programs include singing, which is an enjoyable way for children to learn the sounds that makeup words. We also encourage children to engage in back and forth conversations using words or actions.
Our playing programs foster flexible, imaginative and symbolic thinking in children. We understand that writing encourages fine motor skill development, including holding writing materials.
We are always looking for times to add these practices into a child’s daily routine, like diaper changing time, bedtime, car rides, bath time, or getting dressed. Just a few minutes each day of intentional skill-building can help the children in your life be ready to excel. Creative Childcare
