Group Time: Social and Emotional Development, language and literacy development, Cognitive development (Social systems understanding), creativity, approaches to learning. (Preschoolers and toddlers) While welcoming our preschoolers to daycare, we will be also encouraging the toddlers to sit down with us and participate as well.
Toddlers: We will start with our "Where is _____(Child's name)____"... We will go over our shapes and colors. We will read our book of the day. I'll talk to the children what is a bird and what does it do. Some children may chirp like a bird or flap their arms like wings.
Preschool: We will sing "Where is ___(Child's name)___." We will go over our helping hands, calendar, weather, and how we feel today? This week we will be talking about birds. Today will be a little of a recap of our bird unit, we will be doing a life cycle of chicken quiz. I'll ask my friends questions about what we've been talking about all week.
