I love this time of the year! The air is crisp, leaves are starting to change colours, people seem happier and everything just gets cozier.
At Little Lambs we will be busy this week exploring how our environment is changing.
We will be crafting with natural materials we've collected on our adventures. These crafts will be delivered in an "invitation to create" curriculum format. Children will have the opportunity to create using their own imaginations . They will discover textures, colours, new words and more.
We will also be busy singing some of our favourite songs. Music is a fantastic way to encourage speech and language development. Some of our favourite songs this time of the year are:
While we follow a child let curriculum that doesn't mean that the children are left to do whatever they want. We will be building on the children's interests by creating activities and co-learning with the children.
The actives we love this time of the year are:
-sensory bins (lots of great smells and textures to add this time of the year: cinnamon, pine needles, pumpkin spice, straw, leaves, bark, etc)
-simple outside free play
-watching the clouds
-playing dress up
Eating Is also very important. Here is a menu from my home this week. Our other providers create their own menus weekly. Let's just say, "children are fed well at Little Lambs homes".
thank you for stopping by,
Have a great week!
Early Years at Home
When we refer to home we refer to a feeling of welcome, family, comfort and belonging. Licensed home child care offers the feeling of "home" with the benefits of early years pedagogy.
