Understanding Preschoolers

Smile 'N' Play Daycare's Preschool program is tailored for children aged approximately 2.9 to 6 years old, a period characterized by their eagerness to explore and interact with their surroundings while refining their language skills. This stage is pivotal for acquiring foundational skills essential for kindergarten readiness and future development.

Our program emphasizes structure and fosters autonomy, with a focus on cognitive learning, including number and letter recognition. Grounded in our Emergent curriculum philosophy, we place preschoolers at the heart of their learning journey. Our educators actively engage with, observe, and interpret the interests of each child, encouraging new discoveries.

During this vibrant stage of development, children learn valuable lessons in sharing, mutual respect, and problem-solving, integrating new concepts into their evolving understanding of the world around them.

Your Preschooler's Daily Experience

At Smile 'N' Play Daycare, your preschooler's day begins with a warm welcome into the classroom, greeted by our caring staff and fellow peers. Once settled, our programming focuses on key preschooler learning objectives: establishing routines, fostering independence, enhancing social skills, and promoting cognitive development. Through a diverse range of activities, we ignite and nurture your preschooler's passion for learning.

Our educators guide children in embracing routines, fostering feelings of competence and confidence within the preschool environment, and preparing them for the structure of kindergarten. Throughout the day, children engage in a variety of activities including music, art, number and letter recognition, puzzles, games, imaginative play, physical activities, and scientific exploration. Their days are filled with excitement and discovery!

To ensure your child's well-being, preschoolers have the opportunity to rest and recharge during naptime, preparing them for an afternoon brimming with continued learning, enriching experiences, and outdoor play.
