Sensory Room (Infant)

 

 

Babies are born to be curious and fascinated by the world which surrounds them.  We provide our infants with a colorful, safe, attentive, and welcoming environment that is filled with endless learning opportunities.   Our classroom is designed so that our infants can explore a rich sensory setting filled with different sights, sounds, textures and sensations. The toys that are provided are soft, colorful, and are easy to sanitize. 

 

We realize that learning takes place at the very beginning of a child’s life.  We teach infants through care giving. Our caring staff facilitates activities throughout the day that promotes reading, playing, language development, cognitive, sensory, motor skills, music, and art. If the weather permits, children will be taken outside via stroller.   Our interest lays on the development of the whole child that is why we pay precise attention to the developmental milestones as they are reached. Our infant care focuses on the development of the whole child which equips infants with the essential skills for life-long learning.

 

 

Discovery Room  (One Year Old)

 

In our Discovery Room children begin to discover the concept of “mine.” They think that everything belongs to them and only them.  With that concept in mind we  equipped our classroom with  “multiple”   developmentally appropriate  materials so that every child will  have an opportunity to play with an item that looks like or similar to what another child is playing with.   The materials that are incorporated into our program   promote early learning. Our toddler room teachers will assist your child in developing their cognitive, physical, social and emotional skills through various age appropriate activities.  Our activities are but are not limited to: reading, singing, dancing, puppet play, arts and crafts, small and large group activities and so much more!

 

 

Adventure Room (Two Year Old)

 

 

By the age of two, children's different personalities and skills definitely shine through. They begin to demonstrate new achievements and abilities such as talking in sentences, beginning and understanding rules, running, jumping, climbing, naming, categorizing, dressing themselves, making connections, discovering relationships, and, parents all time favorite, showing an interest in toilet training.   Two year olds exert their independence all on their own. 

 

Our Adventure room is designed to allow children to do the following:

 

1. Learn by doing;                       

2. Learn by observing; and

3. Learn by engaging. 

 

 

Exploratory classroom (3-4 year old children) and 5K Prep classroom(4-5 year old children)

 

 

Our primary objective for our Exploratory classroom (3-4 year old children) and 5K Prep  classroom(4-5 year old children) is to provide exciting classes specifically tailored to engage children in an array of activities that focuses on developmentally appropriate experiences in Cognitive, Communication, Social, Physical and Emotional Development, Approaches to Learning, Health,  Language Arts , Literacy, and Mathematics as well as creative expression through in-depth classroom and community projects. Another important aspect is the program’s ability to adapt to the unique needs and pace of each child, allowing some children to move through lessons quickly while others might require extra practice and are given more instruction.

 

Our program is designed to assist children with being prepared to succeed as they enter kindergarten.

Daily balance of activities consist of the following:

 

• Indoor and outdoor;

• Quiet and active;

• Individual and group;

• Large and small groups;

• Child and teacher initiated; and

• Structured and spontaneous.

Reading Program Initiative

 

In our  Exploratory  Reading Program (3-4 year old children) the  area of focus includes reading, phonics, writing, and letter recognition! We  reinforce the letters of the alphabet and their sounds through games, songs, stories, and exciting hands on activities.

 

In our 5K Prep Reading Program (4-5 year old children), children develop the essential reading readiness skills and habits that lead to fluent reading, and strong comprehension that is needed to learn to read successfully. We want to inspire children to become excited about learning to read, and our program will lay the foundation for a strong start in reading and school.

 

 

 

Your child will:

• Learn beginning phonics and reading readiness skills

• Build comprehension

• Develop a love of books and reading

We  have incorporated the Dick and Jane reading series into our program.  Dick and Jane books were used to assist children during the 1930’s through the 1970’s with mastering  learning how to read in the United States.

 

 

Afterschool Program

 

 

Small Impressions’ afterschool program is unique because of our tutorial services for enrolled students.  Our unwavering contact with schools, parents, and the community assure students enrolled in the facility are receiving a top-notch education.  The students are rewarded for their academic achievement (A-B Honor Roll) every nine weeks.  The academic achievement program encourages the students to strive for the best.  Upon receiving these great honors, the students are allowed to participate in community events as representatives of Small Impressions.  Written consents from parents or guardians allow the staff of Small Impressions to become visible entities of Greenville County Public Schools.  Our staff assists and review homework assignments and preparation for tests and/or projects.  The director periodically meets with students, collectively or individually to discuss their academic progress.    

 

 

Summer Camp (school age)

 

We  exceed the expectations of traditional child care providers. We pride ourselves on taking an extra step with our students as it relates to education. Small Impressions staff wants all of our children to view education as fun but also as something that is an honor and a privilege to have. “We are not Just Learning for Now; We are Learning for Life!” is a slogan that we firmly believe in and stand on. It is our hopes that all children that we serve excel and succeed.   

 

We are very excited and have really placed a great emphasis on our summer camp.  Our summer camp is filled with academics and enrichment activities.   Each child will experience a variety of hands-on educational yet entertaining adventures each and every day.

 

Our summer camp will serve as a refresher course for your child. It will include some review of the educational materials covered during the academic school year. Research states that by continuing to stimulate children’s young minds, over the summer months, when school begins they will be better prepared and ready to learn.  

 

Every day we will devote one to two hours to academics.  Children also have access to a computer, where he/she will complete assignments through Greenville County School District’s Compass learning program. Enrichment activities and field trips are incorporated into the remainder of the day. We  visit educational and fun places.

 

Our goal for our summer session is to arouse the interests of each child, create new and lasting friendships, and insure every child has a summer to remember!
