Curriculum

About Our Curriculum:

Our daycare curriculum goal is to recognize and build up each child’s developmental level as they use play to
investigate and acquire the skills and knowledge, they need to be competent and capable in the world. They will slowly get introduced to letters, numbers, colors, and shapes in their everyday surroundings.
These skills will carry on with your child as they progress through to our toddler class. Meaningful Beginnings is a
great place for your child to get this foundation because of our thematic/play-based curriculum. Our play-based
curriculum is meant to foster your children’s decision making through positive reinforcement, trusting
relationships, interaction with their peers, and an interactive learning environment.

A flexible infant curriculum is essential for getting your child to learn how to socialize and interact with their teachers and their peers. Infants are encouraged to be curious and explore the many toys within the infant classroom. This will encourage them to build interests and create social play at their own pace. Our littlest friend who are not yet on the move are assisted by teacher as they play with toys, sing songs, feed and do tummy time to meet their milestone goals.

The infants are learning many skills from story time to tummy time. A day at Meaningful Beginnings is full of stimulation, learning, and fun for our little friends. We help to develop all the senses by singing, finger painting, using building blocks, and playing counting games.
