Family Day Care offers a unique and nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. The small group settings allow children to receive individualized care and attention that enhances their early development.
We take pride in offering a wide array of exciting activities that make each day special for the children in our care. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of our educators’ favourite activities that they love to plan for their children.
Let’s get arty!
Art is a wonderful way to encourage creativity. Children can paint, draw, and craft to their heart’s content, allowing their imaginations to be free. Under the guidance of caring educators, children can create beautiful works of art, fostering self-expression and fine motor skills.
Spend some time in nature.
Spending time outside is a special chance for children to connect with nature, and engage in fun, educational activities like scavenger hunts and nature walks. It’s a perfect opportunity for children to learn about the environment and develop a love for the outdoors (making sure to keep in mind sun safety!)
Enter the world of storytelling.
Reading and storytelling are fundamental activities. Children are introduced to the world of books through engaging stories that spark their imagination and expand their vocabulary. It’s moments like this that form the foundations for a life-long love of reading!
Help build social skills
Group activities and playtime with other children help children build essential social skills. These interactions provide an opportunity to develop friendships and practice vital life skills.
Explore sensory activities
Sensory activities are both fun and educational. Children get to explore various textures, tastes, and sounds. These activities not only entertain but also stimulate the senses, enhancing cognitive development.
Hit play on the music!
Music and movement activities help children express themselves and develop coordination. Dancing, singing, and playing musical instruments are not only enjoyable but also promote physical and emotional growth.
Family Day Care is more than just childcare; it’s an opportunity for children to engage in exciting and enriching activities that support their development.
Whether it’s through artistic expression, outdoor adventures, storytelling, group play, sensory exploration, or music and movement, these activities help children learn, grow, and create lifelong memories in a nurturing and caring environment.
