Curriculum

Talents Child Care Center offers your children a safe, clean, and nurturing environment. The Infant room provides a warm and comforting setting. Our loving teachers show care by rocking, cuddling, playing, singing, and talking to your baby. Our trained staff knows that these early months are important for your baby’s cognitive development. Children are introduced to soft blocks, stories, puppets, music and enjoy playing outside during the good weather days. Your children will have all the tender-loving care that is so vital for his or her comfort and contentment.

Academic Development


Phonics – Scholastic Phonics program is used and each child has a development plan and the teacher supplements the curriculum with workbooks and early reading books.

Homework – Parents are encouraged to read nightly to their 2 – 3½ year-old children to help with their reading readiness and listening skills. Children 3½ years to Pre-K receive homework nightly to help instill positive learning habits. Help is always offered by members of our staff. In order to promote self-confidence, the worksheets contain materials previously learned so that the children are able to demonstrate that knowledge to their parents. School-aged children are encouraged to do their homework as soon as they arrive at the Center.

Social Development


Children are encouraged to engage in group play. To facilitate this, each preschool classroom has a large area where children interact with each other during large group time. Each teacher assists children with their problem solving skills, as appropriate.

Family/Parent Education


Workshops and conferences are scheduled throughout the year to help educate our parents on topics of interest to them.

We take pride in our outside play areas and encourage children to climb, jump, and run in a safe and monitored environment. In addition to free play, our teachers also include structured outside games and activities in order to help children develop large motor skills.

Emotional Development


Teachers carefully observe the children and when necessary, step in to address conflict situations. Each child is taught how to use words successfully and how to listen to others. We encourage each child to use his/her words, rather than hand gestures, when solving problems.

Imaginative and Creative Development


Creative learning spaces are set up in the large rooms, outside areas, and in each classroom to help individual children imagine, explore and create. Children are allowed to pretend and be creative throughout the day. Children are encouraged to be creative explore all imaginary possibilities. Each day finds children playing house, in a workplace setting, at church, being a firefighter, delivering mail, teaching school, etc.

Promoting Independence


In order to promote a sense of self-confidence, Talents Child Care Center believes it is very important for children to learn self-independence. Children are encouraged to help their parents bring in their belongings each day. During class, children are responsible for taking care of their classroom supplies, help open their lunches, take off/put on their sweaters or jackets, and take care of their sleeping supplies.

Each class has a specific schedule to fit the specific needs of each age group. Every staff member carefully designs the schedule to ensure that children receive a well-rounded educational experience every day.
