School Notes

  • At First Avenue KinderCare Learning Center we are passionate about our kids!

     We believe and practice the "Whole Child" approach to early learning. We focus on all areas of development, and all curriculum is designed around the 6 Early Learning Domains:

    1.Cognitive Development- This is linked to children's ability to acquire knowledge by thinking about,coming to understand,and interacting with the world around them.

    2.Creative expression- This addresses children's interests in the arts and their desire and ability to express themselves creatively.

    3.Executive Function- Focuses on the development of self-regulation,attention and persistence,as well as general dispostitions toward learning.

    4.Language and Literacy Development-  Involves children's abilities to convey their ideas,thoughts,and feelings through speaking and writing,as well as their ability to demonstrate early reading skills.

    5.Pyhsical Development and Wellness- Involves large and small muscle skills,movement concepts,strength and stamina,and awareness,attitudes,and knowledge needed to live a healthy lifestyle.

    6.Social and Emotional development- Has to do with children's ability to express and regulate their feelings and develop relationships with others.

    Children learn through play, it  is the "work" of children. They learn and grow from everything they see, touch or hear, and the best part of all is they are having fun doing it! It is our job to set up our environment to make the most of that.

    *We have a delicious/nutritious menu that is geared towards feeding growing bodies and minds.
    * We have beautiful outdoor areas to see and explore. *We  have an excellent School Age program that focuses on homework, activities to challenge the minds of older children and just plain fun.
    *We have summer/spring camps to keep the kids busy and engaged during the times when elementary school is out.
