Small Wonders provides an enriching preschool experience in a convenient full day childcare format.
It is the goal of the program to provide children with a safe and nurturing environment where they can mature on their own, yet be challenged to explore new concepts and ideas. Friends are encouraged to participate at their own pace and level without competition or comparison. We believe that children are best introduced to the world through a blend of freeplay and meaningful projects. It is our belief that a quality program offers both directed and non-directed activities that encourage children to plan and think about what they are doing. Freeplay allows them to expand and incorporate their ideas through open ended materials, projects allow teachers to provided opportunities for scaffolded learning and acquiring of new skills.
We draw inspiration for our thematic explorations from the children’s interests; therefore we study a wide variety of themes from rockets to rainforests, car engines, plants, and fairy tales to name a few.
