"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
Nursery

 

Here at Little Big Foot Day School, we know that highly responsive care early in life is critical to your child’s long-term social and academic development. So in our safe day school environment your baby will not only be loved and cared for, but our highly trained teachers will stimulate your baby’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development. We emphasize your child’s development, rather than specific age, because all children grow and learn at their own pace, and in their own unique way. Activities are designed to address the individual needs and abilities of each child.

​Toddlers

Toddlers want to go everywhere and do everything. So our highly trained teachers take great care to create a Lesson Plan geared for exploration, excitement and exercise. In your safe, organized environment, toddlers are given a variety of choices for learning experiences that help develop their brain, personality, behavior, and health. Learning concepts in a fun and engaging way with a focus on reaching and mastering milestones.

We explore:

  • Cognitive development

  • Language development and communication

  • Social and emotional development

  • Fine and Gross Motor skills

  • Sensory and exploration

With Individual and group experiences allow children to interact with each other, as well as their environment.

2-Year-Olds

Most two-year-olds are filled with energy and curiosity about the world around them. They’re also quickly developing their sense of independence. To help them achieve that independence, we have highly trained teachers that create a lesson plan geared towards childhood development rather than your child’s age, because all children, regardless of age, learn, grow, and develop at their own pace, and in their own unique way. Teachers help your child develop routines and offer a variety of activities designed to develop mental and physical coordination.

Focusing on:

  • Language communication

  • Sensory and science exploration

  • Physical development and health

  • Social and emotional development

  • Early math building skills

 

 

Free NM Early PreK Program 

 

Early Preschoolers also known as three year-old's love to explore through hands-on activities. And we’re pleased to offer that, with activities based on the early-childhood standards. Early Preschoolers require challenges, respond to motivation, and crave encouragement. To both engage and nurture your child, we provide a balance of freedom and instruction. The classroom is designed as a learning community, where your child not only builds skills vital to success in pre- kinder, but also gains respect for others, and a strong confidence in him or herself.

Throughout our safe learning environment, we offer a Learning Method with activities to develop literacy, mathematical thinking, problem-solving, science exploration, History exploration and creativity, focused on important foundational skills such as:

  • Pre-reading skills

  • Pre-writing

  • Pre-math skills

  • Physical/health coordination skills

  • Social skills

  • Science exploration

  • History exploration

 

We also focus on essential life skills such as communication and self-regulation. Plus, children are routinely encouraged to:

  • Take on challenges

  • Develop their own learning goals

  • See situations from different perspectives

  • Make connections with one another.
