The majority of parents of young children are faced with the dilemma of what type of child care arrangements to make. Parents are most often offered the care only option AKA daycare in one form or another. “Care” can be a nanny or daycare center where children are dropped off and essentially do little more than eat, nap, and free play. They are kept safe and are “cared” for, for a specific amount of time. Many parents do not realize that another option exists.
Park Slope Preschool powered by FasTracKids believes that curriculum should and can be holistically integrated into any care arrangements for young children… Research shows that children thrive when thought provoking curriculum is woven into their daily routine. Their minds develop fully when academic and fun challenges are offered.
We holistically blend smart free play, art and music with early academics to help develop the entire child. We believe that it is possible to choose a program that incorporates all of these aspects… As expectations and standards of what constitutes kindergarten readiness rise, we must provide our children with the best building blocks available for their success.
A curriculum based program allows children to reach milestones earlier and to rise to their full potential. Our students are caring, thoughtful, and creative. They are well prepared for their next stage. This can only be achieved through early childhood curriculum based programs.
