Fun Hands-on Learning!
Little Rascals' philosophy is that children's curiosity and love of play is the base for child-initiated activities. Children learn best through manipulating their environment and integrating those experiences into knowledge.
Little Rascals' Playskool offers hands-on learning activities with a focus on:
- Toddler Language Development (simple ways to help toddlers learn how to communicate)
- Toddler Gross Motor Skills (dancing, playing, climbing, walking, running, balancing, ball play...)
- Toddler Fine Motor Skills (scribbling, kneading dough, zipping, buttoning, cooking, painting, blocks...)
- Toddler Social Skills (listening, taking turns, using manners; most toddlers begin playing parallel and interact with friends as they share the same interests)
- Toddler Early Learning Skills (develop rhyming and rhythm skills, recognize patterns using simple songs and nursery rhymes. Older toddlers begin recognizing letters, words, numbers, colors, and shapes with play-based activities)
- Toddler Imagination Skills (as toddlers play they are pretending to be a parent, cook, teacher, firefighter... with play materials that foster imaginative play. Reading and acting out books help toddlers develop their imagination)
- Toddler Self-Regulating Skills (yoga, deep breathing, dancing games, red light - green light, cross-over body games; encourage toddlers to follow direction, control their emotion, focus attention, and manage behavior, and feelings)
- Toddler Music (we play instruments! sing and rock-out! Every child learns in a musical way! Kids are natural creators of music. Exploration, imitation and experimentation are the beginning of their love for music!)
