Available September – May
Monday – Friday, 9 to Noon
For ages 18 months to age 5
Our early childhood care center provides a safe, healthy, and fun atmosphere for your child, while you are away. Your child will play and grow in the company of friends in a loving, Christian setting.
Someone once wisely said that childhood should be a journey, not a race. We keep that philosophy in mind as we plan for enriching experiences that will help your child to develop skills as they play. We want the children to become comfortable, confident, and competent through exploration and fun. Learning to separate from their primary caregiver, to socialize with peers and their teachers, and to problem solve are some of the things we focus on with the children.
We realize that your child is a treasure and that a happy, healthy parent is the best gift a child can receive. We invite you to have a little time away to take of things while your child learns and grows at Mornings at Memorial.
Busy Bees – ages 18 months to 29 months
This class offers your child their first introduction to being away from their primary caregivers. Throughout their morning an offering of various crafts, stories and play are encouraged. Children learn to make prayer hands and thank God for their daily snack and their families. Each child has the opportunity to develop fine and gross motor skills. Learning to separate from their caregiver and share and play with others their age are important developmental steps.
Curious Caterpillars – ages 30 months to 41 months
The children in this classroom are busy all morning! Through play, these children are learning to cooperate, share, develop language skills, make friends and learn to interact in a group. The opportunity to develop skills in all areas of learning are presented to them daily in a fun and innovative way. Potty training and self-care skills are also encouraged. Children participate in crafts, story time, letter of the week projects, prayer, and more.
Eager Explorers – ages 42 months to 5 years old
This classroom offers a more structured atmosphere. These children are either already in another preschool or getting ready to attend one. In this class, the children are guided to various hands-on activities that lead to more academic learning, such as letter and number recognition, weather, days of the week/month. They also practice proper pencil grip, scissor use, name recognition/printing and so much more each day, in a Christian setting, as they begin their journey of lifelong learning.
Parents register, pay a fee, and sign their child(ren) up for 1 to 3 mornings a week. For more information, contact the Mornings at Memorial Director, Marie Calcaterra by emailing her or calling (313) 882 5330.
