Wonders Child Care Age 4 ProgramsPreschoolers’ learning is thoughtfully and intentionally supported in the areas of language arts, mathematical thinking, science, social studies, the arts, motor skills and social-emotional learning. Children learn skills to help them take care of themselves and each other. Our teachers guide children in their discoveries and foster the skills of life-long learning.

Curriculum planning in all of our early childhood programs is guided by The Creative Curriculum, a comprehensive, research-based approach to teaching. We believe in using teaching methods that match the way children develop and learn. Wonders’ early childhood programs are designed to nurture each child’s social and emotional development while providing learning experiences that enhance development.

Activities in Wonders’ preschool classrooms are based on the premise that children learn by doing. We believe that your child will discover and learn by making the decisions needed to work through an activity, rather than being told exactly how to accomplish a task. As a result of this process-oriented approach, you will find that no two art projects look the same. Your child will discover many individual approaches to accomplish a task. We support the interests of each child, helping him or her grow in his or her social-emotional and cognitive skill development through hands-on experimentation with materials and concepts.

At Wonders, we know that preschoolers’ active minds and bodies learn through physical movement, arts, song, language and scientific and mathematic ideas as they work to understand the world around them. Our preschool classrooms are designed with these adventurers and explorers in mind. Our activities and lessons are designed to help them experience the world around them and to prepare them for what’s ahead.
