We have taken the best of all types of child care available and put them into one complete package. A parent can leave with the confidence that their children are in a safe and caring environment. Our job is to focus on each child’s social, physical and emotional development. A child’s self-esteem, independence, and ability to learn need to be taught through positive experiences in and out of the classroom. Part of our job is to help you prepare your child for their upcoming years. If we work together, this can be obtained. It is Linkage’s philosophy that children mature to reach their growth potential when they are provided with a stimulating, inviting and loving environment. Your child will be involved in activities that will enrich their social, emotional, and physical growth every day. Learning experiences in art, music, dramatic play, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and basic readiness for kindergarten will be provided.
The Preschool Program is designed to help promote the physical, intellectual, and social development of each child in our program in a manner that is consistent with the child’s cultural background as well. Linkage Childcare provides a bilingual curriculum which helps children understand a new language and their own. Throughout the day, we have collaborative activities that coincide with the materials and equipment for learning and growth to occur.
Our Preschool Program is focused on Kindergarten readiness and social/emotional development. The teachers are knowledgeable in what is required of children entering Kindergarten as far as their emotional, social, academic and physical development. They work on letter and number recognition, letter sound identity, one-to-one correspondence in counting, early writing skills and so much more. As important as the academic aspect, the teachers work on self-control, emotion recognition and verbalization, cooperative play, problem-solving and conflict resolution.
The status of your child’s growth is documented throughout the year and kept in each child’s file. The parents will receive a copy of this record along with the opportunity to have a conference with your child’s teacher twice a year.
Quiet activities such as math, art, and language and active activities such as dramatic play, large muscle, and music are also part of your child’s day. Some activities are child initiated and others are teacher directed.
We provide a good balance of active, quiet, group, and structured activities so your child will be happy and content while away from home.
