Punkin Patch's programs give children ages 6 weeks through 12 years enriching opportunities to develop the whole child. We focus on learning through child directed play experiences and curriculum time. We believe a balance of play and preschool enhances growth and development in all areas physically, socially, emotionally, creatively, and intellectually. This is achieved in a safe and loving environment with caregivers who are dedicated to enriching children's lives.
K Prep Program
The K Prep program is taught to the 3 & 4 Year Old children. Children are placed in small groups according to their age and when they will enter public school. Our curriculum is hands on based so the children learn through activity directed play. Each classroom is equipped with 7 exploration centers to offer hands on experiences. These learning areas are: Construction Center, Dramatic Play, Art & Writing, Reading, Manipulative, Science, Music & Movement.
Caregivers are specially trained to care for Infant's and Toddler's. Each Caregiver is certified in Infant CPR & First Aid as well as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Shaken Baby Syndrome & Early Brain Development. Each certification is renewed on a yearly basis along with 24 continue education hours all through a licensed instructor. The Infant's and Toddler's are grouped in a small group setting ensuring individual attention is given. The Curriculum Director has planned enrichment activities for each morning and afternoon for these little ones.
The early preschool program is designed to develop the whole child with emphasis on meeting their individual needs. This program offers developmentally appropriate activities for children who are 2 & 3 Year's Old. Our curriculum is theme based and is enhanced with the use of learning centers in the classrooms and outdoor play during recess. Each classroom is equipped with 7 exploration centers to offer hands on experiences. These learning areas are: Construction Center, Dramatic Play, Art & Writing Center, Reading Center, Manipulative Center, Science Center, Music & Movement Center. Children are grouped in small settings in order to receive the individual attention they so desire.
We provide transportation to all local schools and some surrounding private schools. After School the children have the opportunity to complete homework, enjoy free play time in the learning centers and play outside. During school breaks and summer the children stay busy with planned themed activities to do throughout the day at the center as well as field trips away from the school.
