The Can Do Curriculum & Can Do Checklist
We developed “Can Do” a few years back to encourage and reinforce healthy habits, an awareness of safety, independence, and self esteem in young children. Activities, such as hand washing, managing sneezes and coughs, and many other particularly useful skills are taught and practiced throughout the year.
Our indoor space features two large classrooms that are super well-equipped with toys and learning materials. Some of the highlights include: a sand table, water table, computers, puppet theater, store front, woodworking table, a space for block building and gross motor toys, areas for science, math, language, and geography plus a space for quiet time and reading. In addition to this we also have a life-size, two story play house for baby dolls, cooking, and laundry. Very fun!
Outdoor Play Facility
A terrific outdoor play area, our (very amazing) playground is fenced and outfitted with commercial-grad equipment, an enormous sandbox, and a wonderful array of outdoor toys, bikes, and other activities. Wow 🙂
