In line with our goal to create eager learners, we make sure to provide age appropriate programs that can cater to the developing needs of each child. At Achievements Learning Center, we group children appropriately according to age level. Our classes are designed to provide activities and learning opportunities for each age group.
We pride ourselves in creating the best environment that fosters healthy peer interaction and provides activities at each level that instill an active interest in learning for each student. Our classes are small and allow the teacher to better interact with each child providing a nurturing and personal relationship that is vital to each child’s development.
Our programs include:
- Infant Care
We have four classrooms dedicated to infants aging from eight (8) weeks to one (1) year old. Our teachers spend individual time with each child in order to ensure they are meeting all of the child’s needs. Each classroom has two or three staff members present to ensure every child is receiving the best care. All of our infant rooms are fully equipped with diaper changing tables and refrigerators. Throughout the day, we make sure they feel safe and loved by all staff. Each room has age appropriate toys and books. The teachers in the room plan activities such as tummy time and story time in the lesson plans. In our infant rooms, we want to have the children practicing using their large muscles in order to reach their milestones such as sitting up, rolling over, pulling themselves up, and eventually crawling and walking!
All of our one-year-old rooms are equipped with diaper changing tables and are provided a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack daily. As our infants begin walking, they transition to our one-year-old rooms. Here they will continue to work on their gross motor development and spend lots of time singing and dancing. Our teachers create activities that allow the children to experiment with textures and use their senses to discover more about their world. The children will begin to develop independence and build upon their communication.
Once a child moves up to a two-year-old classroom from a one-year-old classroom, the main focus is to improve the child’s language skills and their self-help skills. In our two-year-old rooms, we have separate bathrooms for the children to use in order to start potty training. The children are also provided a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack daily by the school. All classrooms have their lesson plans posted weekly so please make sure to look out for them so you know what your child will be learning throughout the week. Classroom activities deal with the following subjects, but are not limited to, math, science, art, music/movement, and language/literacy.
- Three and Four-Year-Olds
In our three-year-old and four-year-old classrooms, we try to focus on making the children well rounded in all areas of learning. Children will receive a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack, all of which are provided by the school. Weekly lesson plans have activities in areas such as math, science, art, and language/literacy along with developmentally appropriate planned activities in compliance with standards and our curriculum.
Our main focus for our VPK students is taking all appropriate measures necessary to prepare the children for Kindergarten. One of our main concentrations for the year are learning the letters of the alphabet, upper and lower case and the sounds they make. Some other main concentrations for throughout the year are basic math and science skills and learning to recognize sight words.
