Grandma’s Daycare and Preschool integrated language-based preschool classrooms, serving infants, toddlers and Preschoolers. An integrated preschool includes typically developing children as well as children with disabilities.
These classrooms offer children the opportunity to work and play with age-appropriate peers as well as children with developmental challenges. Children with disabilities excel in some areas, affording all children the opportunity to be models in some realm. As children work in group activities with their peers, they discover their similarities and develop a better understanding of their differences. Flexible, but consistent, structure and routine are offered, including activities designed to promote language/listening skills, gross and fine motor development, and opportunities for imaginative/dramatic play.
Music, sensory activities, and a wide variety of developmentally appropriate materials and activities are employed, all of which support a strong foundation for learning.
Our philosophy is based on the belief that children learn best in an early childhood program that provides developmentally appropriate educational experiences in an integrated setting.
Our early childhood program is designed to provide a stimulating learning environment that supports the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of every child. In this engaging environment, children learn through appropriate play experiences that encourage active participation in learning.The first five years of a child’s brain development are crucial. Research shows that this is the time when the brain is creating new connections and developing at the most rapid pace it ever will.
