Our educators create daily program plans tailored to the children's interests, aiming to make engaging and enjoyable learning experiences. These plans cover a wide range of developmental skills, including social, emotional, communication, language and literacy, cognitive, and physical development. Additionally, they draw from the "How Does Learning Happen" pedagogical theory, emphasizing four foundational principles: Belonging, Well-Being, Engagement, and Expression. These principles, combined with the developmental skills, underscore the belief that children are capable, possess complex thinking abilities, exhibit curiosity, and harbor vast potential.
To strengthen communication with parents, both in-person discussions and the "HiMama" program are used to address developmental milestones.
For infants, there is a gradual one-week introduction to the daycare, while older or transitioning infants have access to a specially tailored menu provided by Real Food for Real Kids.
