Key features of Kidz Care Kastle

Every child is unique and they develop at their own pace. At Kidz Care Kastle Day Care we plan our day’s schedule considering such individual dierences.

We assist the children on their journey to developing the age appropriate skills required for future achievement as per the developmental milestones.

1. Nurture with care and love: We understand babies enjoy being loved and cuddled. We ensure the caregivers nurture the babies with love and care; by singing, rocking the cradle & talking.

2. Sensory Exploration: We encourage our babies to learn by using all of their senses. Our educational activities, feature and include an assortment of sound and textured toys to foster development in key areas. 3. Individualized Care & Education: Individual lesson plans are developed to ensure that age-appropriate development and learning objectives are being met. The caregivers will work closely with parents to develop an appropriate eating and sleeping schedule. 4. Fine & Gross Motor Exploration: Development of small and large muscles and skills such as rolling from side-to-side and sitting up are a big part of our Infant Room’s daily schedule. We help our babies strengthen motor skills via various activities to help them acquire these skills. 5. Language Exploration: Our caregivers use facial expressions, verbal cues, and a variety of interactions to provide our babies with the building blocks of language. Peek-a-boo and pointing out simple objects of interest are integrated throughout the day. Our caregivers understand the importance of these interactions and how essential they are to language development. 6. Baby Signs: We encourage communication with children who may not yet be able to express themselves verbally, giving the infant a way to communicate their wants and needs through simple signs. 7. Social Development at a Young Age: Our caregivers realize the importance of the behaviours they are modelling. We stress on using “please” and “thank you,” taking turns, following instructions, and considering others. The child will learn how to make friends, share toys, and master other important socio-emotional skills.

We at Kidz Care Kastle help the toddlers explore the world around them and make new discoveries while developing their skills, which acts as building blocks for lifelong learning. Toddler ’ s World

Our school-age program oers the opportunity for children up to 10 years old to enjoy fun lled educational activities while developing friendship after the school bell rings. Activities like sports, music, art and dance classes will be conducted in the evening once the children are back from the school. We provide a welcoming environment where kids can create and build friendship, stay active and build condence. After school Activity sessions

1. On the Move: If the toddler hasn’t already started walking, our caregivers will support his or her newly found movement until he or she is steady on his or her feet.

2. Close Connections: When toddlers begin to move, their caregiver will be close behind to provide necessary support. While all the caregivers will have interactions with them, the majority of interactions will be shared between each toddler and a primary caregiver. 3. Exploring with the Senses: From painting to singing and cooing with the toddler, we encourage the children to use all of their senses to learn. Simple, yet educational activities are key to the overall well-being and growth. The child’s caregiver will observe each child as they explore the world around them and will include sensory exploration activities in their daily experiences. 4. Social Development at a Young Age: Especially with children at this age, our caregivers realize the importance of the behaviours they are modelling. We stress on using “please” and “thank you,” taking turns, following instructions, and considering others. In this classroom, the child will learn how to make friends, share toys, and master other important socio-emotional skills. 5. Language / Cognitive Development: Our Toddler Room reading learning centre is lled with books, letter cards, puppets and more to aid the children in language development. Our teachers work with the toddlers as they gain vocabulary in order to express themselves. 6. Gross Motor Development: Exploring outside is a favourite activity for most toddlers and our special toddler age-appropriate playgrounds make running and playing both fun-lled and safe. Our teachers will help the children master and develop balance and muscle control.
