A General Daily Schedule is designed around landmarks during a child’s day arrival, departure, meals and nap or rest times. At Miss Ann’s Home Child Care these landmarks can be manipulated for each individual’s understanding of his or her child care day.
Miss Ann’s Home Child Care facility is play based. According to Hilda L. Jackman, (author of Early Education Curriculum: A Child’s Connection to the World (Fourth Edition) ISBN# 781428322462), play is defined as a “behavior that is self-motivated, freely chosen, process oriented and enjoyable”. Play promotes non-stressful, fun and unbiased learning. It allows for free thought, expression and exploration. This sort of play, as defined above, develops self -esteem and encourages social interaction through a variety of steps beginning with an “Unoccupied Behavior”, a momentary interest of what is going on in the infant’s or toddler’s world. It ends with “Cooperative Play”. This “Cooperative Play” is play that has an organized purpose and a shared goal or goals between children usually of ages 4 to 5 years old. It reveals the child’s maturity in understanding, acceptance and taking responsibility for other children’s ideas during play. It is the opinion of this facility that play develops the child as a whole and is considered an important component to childhood. Play should be and will always be encouraged here.
Although this child care is play based, the staff realizes the need for an education as well. Children approximately ages two years and up enjoy a self-paced Home Preschool Curriculum with varying levels of difficulty and use of ABCMouse.com. Artwork is also encouraged and is more about experimenting with crayons, markers, pencils, pens, paints, glues, scissors, etcetera than anything else. Also to introduce the idea of social activities, circle time and other pre-planned activities are woven into your child’s child care day.
