When looking for a daycare in the Calgary area, you may find several daycare’s that are focused more on just ensuring that kids are safe and in one place. Here at 2000 Days, we ensure safety and socializing with those kids who attend, but we also have a curriculum that we adhere to for each age we have at the school. Why do we focus on a curriculum? This is a good question, and there are several reasons as to why we make 2000 Days one of those daycare’s that focus on learning, socializing and overall helping the child to grow and learn.
How a Curriculum Helps Children
There are many benefits that a child will find when they attend a daycare that has a curriculum in place. For example:
- Kids who are encouraged at this young age to learn are going to make great strides in life to learn at every stage of their life.
- Kids who are emerged in one of these curriculums perform better once they get to their real school, and this performance is seen for the rest of their lives, even into the college years.
- Those kids who attend these programs are often those who have higher test scores.
- Kids develop a love for learning, which is essential to ensure that they enjoy school for the rest of their lives.
Why wouldn’t you want your child to develop a love of learning when it has been shown to help the child in numerous other aspects of their life now and into the future? As a parent, you want your child to get all the help that they can to be the best that they can be, and this curriculum is just one of the ways in which a daycare can help your child.
What Our Curriculum Covers
One of the things that we focus on is that every child is different. Thus, the curriculum is not going to be cut and dry for each student in our class. We focus on:
- Physical Education
- Creative Arts
- Music Yoga
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
We want kids to develop their basic understanding of these areas so that they are going to have a natural curiosity for these areas as they age.
