FunCare utilizes various age appropriate, research proven, award winning curriculumn! Our Primary curriculum is Get Set For School. In addition we have incorporated ABCmouse.com, Getting Ready to Read by Scholastic, Beginning Sign Language and Hooked on Phonics. Our goal is to fully develop each child as a whole person and prepare them for Elementary School and Beyond. We utilize computers and interactive smart boards in our classrooms and provide "good old Fashion" hands on learning throughout the day!
The Get Set for School® readiness curriculum uses a developmental approach that is based on the most relevant research about how young children learn best. Get Set for School® helps young learners gain the skills and experiences they need for lifelong learning success. Our hands-on curriculum focuses on the three core learning areas—Readiness & Writing, Language & Literacy, and Numbers & Math. We get preschoolers singing, dancing, coloring, building, and exploring on a joyous journey to school. This comprehensive program is essential to the development of children in our Preschool classrooms.
Readiness & Writing
Reading and Writing incorporates child-friendly teaching strategies, such as using music and movement to bring lessons to life, and multisensory manipulatives to build fine and gross motor skills. Our readiness and writing lessons teach body awareness, cooperation, taking turns, listening, crayon grip, drawing, building, letter and number recognition, capital letter and number formation.
Language & Literacy
Children begin developing language skills from the moment they are born. The language and literacy program actively teaches syllables, names and sounds of letters, words linked to content, new words in spoken language, how to respond to simple questions, and how to have discussions and share ideas.
The program focuses on building rich Vocabulary so that children learn a word’s meaning and what a word represents so they begin to understand the network of concepts that goes with it. Children also learn the difference between drawing and writing, associate books with reading, read environmental print, and ultimately learn the many benefits of early reading and writing.
Children also learn to identify letter symbols, both capital and lowercase, by letter names. They learn how these “symbols” work together to form printed words and how printed words related to spoken language.
Numbers & Math
We demystify numbers and make math concepts relevant and fun for children. With playful manipulatives, music, and rhymes, our numbers and math program teaches counting, comparisons, spatial awareness, patterning, sequencing, matching, sorting, problem solving, and even Pre-K geometry skills.
The program helps students build number sense right from the start. They also get time to play with real objects and test their ideas so that math becomes real and meaningful. Children also develop oral language that helps them learn about and express math concepts.
Our Program and Curriculum implements activities that further enhance and support learning beyond the classroom as well as involve parents in their child's education.
Through our partnership with award winning early learning website ABCMOUSE.COM, with curriculum that includes hundreds of computer-based interactive activities that children love and which also provide opportunities for parents to be actively involved in their child's learning. These activities include games, songs, books, and more, all of which have many academic and developmental benefits for young children.
