A Play House for Learning
6109 Thermal Road, Charlotte, NC 28211
I own and operate "A Play House for Learning" which is a Licensed North Carolina Family Child Care Home. Facility No. 60002823.The Child Care has a licensed capacity of five preschool children and three school age children.
The curriculum that is being used will be helping children grow and learn. A Play House For Learning wants family to feel that they are a part of their child’s life at a Play House for Learning and to understand more about what we do every day.
In our program, we use "The Creative Curriculum for Family Child Care". Its philosophy is that children need the opportunity to grow at their own pace and to learn in ways that help them become confident in themselves as learners.
These goals guide everything done in this program
For example, the home is organized to make it a safe place for children to explore and to learn. A Play House for Learning keeps the children’s toys and materials on low shelves, in low and easy-to-open drawers, or on a mat on the floor. This makes it easy for the children to find and play with the toys they like. It helps them learn how to make choices and be independent. All children also have a place to keep their jackets, blankets, and pictures to bring home.
Many activities are planned for the children. Building with blocks, dress up and make–believe, put puzzles together, read books, tell stories, play with sand and water, draw and paint, dance to music, and play outdoors. All the activities are aimed at helping the children learn new things and feel good about what they can do. children are encouraged to do things on their own and to be curious and interested in all that’s going on around them. We talk ask questions, and answer their questions to help them learn new words and to express their ideas and feelings.
