Little Steps Learning Center’s center-based curriculum hinges on two fundamental aspects of childhood: play and daily routines. Little Steps Learning Center uses learning centers with developmentally appropriate activities and a play based daily routine to ensure skill development through their play. Children are given the opportunity to choose and experiment in the learning centers within the classroom.
We believe that learning center activities are opportunities for children to learn skills in large muscle movement (gross motor), small muscle movement (fine motor), understanding and communicating with others, doing things for him/her self (adaptive/self help), developing relationships and feelings about one’s self (social emotional), thinking and problem solving (cognitive) and child initiated art and music (creativity). Little Steps Learning Center enhances these opportunities for children to learn by allowing them to explore the environment and support them with many teacher child interactions throughout their play and daily activities.
