Children will develop five core skills: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship building skills, and responsible decision-making skills.
At Creative Minds Center we asses all motor/sensory skills with consistent and accepted testing and we meet the child’s requirements by age or function level. Our program strives to integrate sensory input and strengthen sensory skills through the frequency and duration of activities that are designed to improve balance and stability and to increase sensory awareness so a child can respond effectively.
Language and literacy supports children’s cognitive development while allowing them to express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings, and to communicate with others. Literacy supports children’s
ability to read, and write, as well as to speak and listen in a way that allows them to communicate effectively. Literacy lies not just in the ability to read and write, but also helps children make connections and interpret details of the world in which they live in.
Gross motor development (physical) is a skill that enhances children’s growth and independence. This skill involves the movement of large muscles in the body to perform everyday functions, such as standing and walking, running, jumping, and sitting upright at the table as well as hand-eye coordination.
Fine motor skills involve a refined use of the small muscles which control the hand, and fingers. With these skills, children are able to complete important tasks such as writing, feeding oneself, buttoning and zippering.
Our program makes available a variety of tools and activities that foster children to start thinking in different and new ways, understanding of concepts, learning creative skills and finding innovative techniques to solve problem and to improve memory steadily.
Creative Minds Child Development Center offers an art program to engage children in areas such as dance, music, art projects, and dramatic play. Children are able to express feelings and creativity in delightful ways while appreciating art.
Gardening provides children with a sensory stimulation that they experience in a garden. Feeling the texture of the soil or the plant leaves is also interesting, as is the smell of the fresh garden and its plants. Growing fruits and vegetables can also safely enrich your child’s sense of taste.
Integrating music and movement supports children with development, social interaction and language growth. Music enhances the creativity and curiosity in children. Moving along the beat of music helps develop the motor skills in children.
