Everything that happens inside of the Day Care is a learning experience! We have two or more circle times that include stories, songs, finger plays, and movement activities. Circle time includes open-ended art activities and crafts, dramatic play activities, blocks, alphabets, shapes and colors, counting, literacy, STEM, games and puzzles. The children have outdoor play twice daily (we have a fenced in yard with lots of fun equipment). On cold days, indoor activities are encouraged.
Other activities include: Cooking/Baking, Gardening, and Nature Learning and more. Hummingbirds Child Care believes in play-based learning. At this program we hope that your child attains lifelong learning experiences.
