Welcome to Smiles Day Nursery & Early Learning Center

CURRICULUM

We follow Creative Curriculum guidelines incorporated with an individualized focus. This curriculum highlights the fundamentals of basic caregiving, leaving room for flexibility and individuality while touching base on each developmental domain including social-emotional, cognitive, gross motor/fine motor, sensory and language. Infant and Toddler curriculum is guided and built around a daily based routine. We balance structure and flexibility during the day to create and implement a consistent yet interchangeable curriculum with young children's needs in mind. Preschool curriculum, on the other hand, is self-regulated under a structured environment. Here children learn about the basic life skills that will prepare them for their future ahead. Each center is designed to promote various developmental domains and each activity is organized to enhance skills needed for those domains.

Our activities are very "hands-on". Whether it is for sensory purposes or motivating a child to gain self-help skills, we make our activities as practical and realistic as possible. Making or creating something on their own allows children to feel proud of their work, giving them a boost of self- confidence.

Our age-appropriate individualized curriculum does not only focus on the individual child, but also allows children to learn through interactive, imaginative and manipulative play, all in a social environment. This builds independence and self-help skills and creates a loving and trusting bond between children and educators.

We strongly believe in family involvement in making our curriculum successful. Whether it is through daily communication or monthly planned activities, parents are a big part of our team and we highly encourage their input.
