Child Care Programs
Infants (6 weeks-12 months)
FUMCCB Child Care Center provides infants with individual attention and love, fostering and encouraging their development. Various experiences are designed to promote gross motor abilities while producing a stimulating environment which helps formulate trusting relationships. We provide materials that encourage infants to use all of their senses: rattles, unbreakable mirrors, squeeze toys, texture balls, fill and dump toys, simple rhythm instruments, books, and simple puzzles.
Toddlers (12 months – 2 years)
Around the age of one, your child is becoming increasingly mobile. This is a thrill and a challenge for both you and your child. FUMCCB Child Care provides a stimulating environment where your child can begin to roam and explore their new mobility safely. Age appropriate materials are readily available for your child to discover shapes, colors and patterns. We provide both fine motor and gross motor activities to encourage your child’s development. Two year olds are becoming better at communicating their thoughts through gestures as well as verbally. Our teachers encourage the children’s language development through songs, stories and other fun hands on learning activities.
Pre-School(3-4 years old)
Preschoolers enjoy a wide variety of self-exploration with manipulatives that enhance fine and gross motor functions. Music and movement is also incorporated into their weekly activities. As they continue to grow more independent, teachers provide learning opportunities that encourage emotional/social development, academic skills and self-discovery. Monthly curriculum calendars are designed that include character development, community helpers, colors, math concepts and letter recognition. Weekly activity plans are designed to promote literacy, emotional/social skills, pre-math readiness, writing, nature & discovery exploration, music & movement and gross motor. Teachers encourage conflict resolution within the classroom by teaching our children the skills to communicate verbally to have their needs met. We also use positive reinforcement and redirection as tools in classroom management.
