Knowing that all children are unique, we know that they don‘t learn in the same way. We strive to make learning fun so that they grow up eager to continue learning as they move on to school. We don‘t believe in pushing children to learn things by a certain age, when they are ready they will pick up on the skills they need. We incorporate learning into daily activities and are always looking for new fun activities to help them learn while having fun.
One thing that is very important to us is having good manners. We work every day on please and thank you, sharing, table manners, cleaning up after yourself and kindness. Even for those that are too small to be able to talk, we practive manners in front of them to teach by example. At meal time each child is responsible for bringing their own dishes to the sink. It’s so cute to see even the littlest ones want to copy the older kids and bring in their dishes. When a conflict does occur with the children, we get down on their level and talk things through. If a time out is necessary we always follow it up with a talk about why they had the time out and what could be done differently next time. And we always apologize.
Who doesn’t want to have fun? Certainly not kids! Our home is full of toys, games, books, crafts, and so much more. We live on over 2 acres of Fun Fun Fun! We have lots to do outside as well, riding toys, water and sand toys, kiddie pool, sprinkler, big blow up waterslide, climbing toys, swingset, bubbles and chalk, etc. Our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for the kiddos to grow and learn. Our home is childproofed with two loving adults always in the home.
Healthy eating can be fun and delicious! As a family we feel it is important to eat healthy and we carry that over into SweetPeas. The children can be picky so we do our best to incorporate fresh fruits and veggies daily and limit sugar. We do not give sugary treats daily but for birthdays or holiday parties we do have special treats. Parents are also free to send birthday treats. We provide breakfast, lunch, and snack daIly.
