Benefits for Parents/Caregivers
- Knowledge that your child is participating in a curriculum program aligned with the highest quality standards in early childhood education.
- Built-in family engagement to keep you involved in your child’s learning. Each month kit includes a Family Newsletter loaded with helpful information. You’ll find the themes and concepts, vocabulary words, sign language, and songs. You’ll also find ideas for simple activities to enjoy with your child, a recipe, and a list of books to read at home. Additional materials available include calendars, blog articles, and music playlists.
- Exceptionally prepared teachers are able to spend more time each day interacting with children and less time prepping and planning.
Our program has an orientation meeting with new families prior to their child enrolling.
Newly enrolling children are encouraged to visit for a half-day prior to beginning care and gradually transition into full-day care if family desires.
What Will My Child Learn?
Each Buttercups curriculum kit covers a two-month time frame—Sept/Oct, Nov/Dec, Jan/Feb, Mar/Apr, May/June, and July/Aug. Each kit includes four themes, with each theme lasting about two weeks. Your child’s teacher/child care provider can choose from a variety of activities and materials to promote and enhance growth in the following developmental areas:
- Language/Literacy: Children develop skills in both listening and communicating and build a foundation for later reading and writing. Activities include songs, rhymes, fingerplays, reading picture books, and more.
- Physical Development/Health: Activities promote wellness and allow children to grow in using both small and large muscles. Playdough, water play, vigorous outdoor play, healthy snack ideas, and more are offered.
- Science/Math/Creative Arts: Children are encouraged to enjoy and explore a variety of art materials, investigate their world, and begin to engage in symbolic thinking. Activities include pretend play, sensory exploration, experimentation, self-expression, and more.
- Social/Emotional: Experiences are planned to help children develop relationships with adults and other children, learn more about themselves, recognize and express feelings, and begin to demonstrate self-regulation.
- Social Studies: Predictable routines and age-appropriate rules bring order to children’s lives. Children will learn about their families, their child care setting, and the local culture and community.
- Approaches to Learning: Opportunities to build skills in this area are woven throughout all of the curriculum activities. Such activities focus on building memory and promoting curiosity, persistence, and problem-solving—skills that are critical for lifelong learning!
