Polka Dot Academy has developed a creative early childhood curriculum that incorporates Montessori educational principles with an exceptional level of care in a nurturing environment. Our daycare provides both play based and academic learning with highly trained teachers. Polka Dot staff provide a wide diversity of songs/finger rhymes along with other language activities for listening and learning. Tricky and significant activities surrounding Drama and Art such as dressing, cooking and laying the table or working with different types of brushes, paper and glue, playing with items in the water/sand table and open-ended questions open the opportunities for children to learn the world around them and develop their fine motor and cognitive skills. Toddlers love their daily buggy rides as well as outdoor time in our Toddler Play area. The classes have daily activities that involve nature, real life experiences, dramatic play, sensory activities, gross motor/fine motor and literacy time. These are well observed by the teacher and are documented for the parents to review. Toddlers enjoy everything above, but most of all, socializing with each other. Our teachers also introduce “toilet training” in this program, and help the children get onto a routine so they can become successful.
