“Their minds were not built to sit and be taught. They were built to explore, play and learn.” Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child’s soul.”
Children under two years of age will have a flexible schedule that will reflect the child’s individual needs. Infants will be given individual attention including lots of time for talking. Developmental goals and milestones will align with Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards.
2 year old's will have many opportunities for play and development. Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards will be used to plan activities with their interests and developmental level in mind. If toddlers are ready some activities will be planned using Pocket of Preschool Curriculum.
3-5 year olds can use their imaginations while playing, creating and learning at their own pace. Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards will be used in conjunction with Pocket of Preschool Curriculum. Learning Centers are available for for independent exploring or playing together with peers.
Ages 5 and up will have a quiet place to study or relax , access to appropriate materials and activities while having ample time for large muscle activities and participate in food preparation.
“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right
for each individual child.”
The mission of Scribbles & Giggles Family Childcare is to provide a safe, clean, loving, developmentally appropriate and enjoyable experience for every child.
Scribbles & Giggles Family Childcare believes children learn best through play. I believe in open and honest communication. I understand that all children are unique and special in their own way therefore I am committed to working with families to ensure what is best for your child. I also believe in teaching children important life lessons such as Self Help and Safety, Patience, Teamwork, Responsibility and
Compassion for self and others. Children are encouraged to use his or her imagination and own ideas.
My vision in the present is for parents to feel good about their childcare choice and in the future, I hope each child will look back at their experiences with me and cherish it as a highlight of their childhood.
Observe and listen to children because when they ask “why?” they are not simply asking for the answer from you. They are requesting the courage to find a collection of possible answers.
