Daily activities for this group consist of circle-time, art, math, science, music and out-door play (weather permitting).
Lloyd’s Lollipop Land encourages problem solving through the use of creative learning, which enhances and stimulates a desire for the children to learn. All activity is developmentally appropriate to stimulate positive growth. These activities help to encourage the development of language, problem solving, for independence and shared activities. Children are encouraged to seek help with difficult tasks. Resect of peers and staff are also incorporated and encouraged in the daily curriculum of activities.
Weekly homework assignments are given to the preschoolers, and we are designed to be an extension of what children learn in the classroom, which enables the parent to be more knowledgeable of their children’s learning progress.
