At Kids’ Korner we believe that education should be exciting, relevant and fun! Our goal is to provide each child in our care with a nurturing, yet stimulating environment. We strive to lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. We follow a theme-based curriculum. Teachers plan lessons, projects and stories around a central weekly topic or “theme.”
Each spring we marvel as we follow the life cycle of the Painted Lady butterfly, from live caterpillar to beautiful butterfly. It’s a big day when our butterflies fly free! Other special events and guests are scheduled throughout the year. We might celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with green eggs and ham, enjoy a live concert with a children’s entertainer or learn about fire safety from a real live firefighter. And we always take lots of snapshots to share with parents!
What will you see when you visit Kids’ Korner? You will see babies and young children, grouped by age, receiving loving and attentive care from our experienced staff. You will see children playing with blocks, looking at books, or working on craft projects. You might hear some singing or see some dancing. Perhaps you will join us at morning or afternoon snack time, when fresh fruit and other wholesome foods are served. When weather permits, you will find them in one of our enclosed, outdoor play yards—sliding, climbing, running, laughing—maybe playing in the sprinkler or building a snowman! Older children might take a walk to explore our wonderful Narberth neighborhood, where they will always find a cordial welcome at the post office, the library and other community facilities.
On your tour, you might see a youngster being introduced to the letter of the week, identifying the shape of his snack cracker or counting cups for lunch. Perhaps you will observe a toddler being praised for sharing a toy, comforting a friend or using the potty. There are many kinds of learning and we want to facilitate them all. We want children to learn about kindness, empathy and respect as well as shapes and numbers. We want to stretch bodies and minds. Our children learn about seasons and sharing, colors and caring, letters and listening.
