Seasonal Program Themes

Program Themes

Our varied programs help in developing the whole child by meeting their social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs. 

 

During the fall, winter, and spring seasons, children are introduced to new theme-related activities for various two-week units.

 

 

Spring 2014

  • The Sky and Weather: Children will learn about different types of weather through a variety of fun hands-on activities both indoors and outdoors. Children will also learn about and discuss different objects in the sky, such as the Moon, the Sun, planet Earth, and stars.
  • In My Imagination: Many young children have difficulty distinguishing between what is real and what is imaginary. This unit, “In My Imagination,” includes a wide variety of ways for children to explore their imaginations through storytelling, drama, and art. This unit also uses classic stories as vehicles to help children explore the differences between real and make-believe and to foster imagination and creativity.
  • In the Spring: This unit provides children the opportunity to explore the signs of spring in their communities as well as in other regions of the country. As children explore, science skills will be reinforced through investigation, measurement, and sensory experiences with nature and natural elements.
  • Wild Animals: Many children are naturally attracted to animals, and are especially fascinated by the sizes, sounds, and appearances of wild animals. This unit, “Wild Animals,” provides children with opportunities to learn and talk about the many characteristics of wild animals on savannas and in jungles.
  • Plants and Gardening: Exploring nature and all it offers is exciting for children. During springtime, flowers bloom, trees blossom, and people begin to plant seeds that grow throughout the year. This unit, “Plants and Gardening,” is a great opportunity for children to use soil, learn about nature, and watch things grow.
  • Insects and Spiders: Children can be naturally curious about insects and spiders, and this unit will introduce children to the exciting world of these special creatures. Children will learn about the similarities and differences between insects and spiders, how bees make honey, why spiders spin webs, and how a butterfly grows from an egg.
  • Water: Water is the foundation of life on Earth. But for young children, water is mostly for playing with and getting wet! This unit, “Water,” provides opportunities for children to explore water in fun and engaging ways. Children will also learn about and experiment with water in its different forms—solid, liquid, and gas—and will determine the buoyancy of objects by testing if they float or sink in water.
