We at Little Handz Daycare use the award winning Early Learning Curriculum
Through Funshine, we practice activities such as numbers, letters, colors,and
shapes to further our learning and fun.
We have also started doing weekly Show and Tell during preschool starting in September.
The kids love to share with their friends.
Children learn by doing! They are interested in hands-on materials and should be offered opportunities to make meaningful choices. It offers a wide variety of ideas to build early literacy, math, science and social skills.
We help you address each child socially, physically, emotionally, and cognitively! Our curriculums stimulate thinking, reasoning, decision-making, and problem-solving.
Our monthly curriculums offer a blend of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. They are very flexible! Pick and choose from our activities to, meet the individual needs of the children in your group.
Based on current early learning research, our curriculums actively engage children and support differences in learning styles, maturity, and interests. This guarantees that our curriculums have the depth to meet educational standards being implemented throughout the United States.

I will try to maintain a daily schedule as closely as possible, depending on the ages in care. At times a more flexible day will be necessary.
We love field trips, so if you know of some great places please let me know so we can check them out.
I have a wonderful outdoor play area for the children. A fully fenced yard allows the children to run, jump, scream, laugh and play as much as they want to. There is a large play area with many outside toys.
I also have a wonderful concrete porch in the back that allows for riding cars. In the summertime we run through the sprinklers or play in the kiddie pool, providing it is hot enough. We also plan what I call a "Fun Week" every now and then.
This may include, backwards day, all clothes are worn backwards and inside out, Pajama Day, (don't we all love to stay in our warm PJ's), Specific color of clothes for the day, say we all will wear the color red for the day, Stars day, everyone tries to find something with stars on it.
