Cooking can be an exciting activity for children; they get to participate in a “grown-up activity” and eat the fruits of their labor. If your child loves to lend a hand in the kitchen, use the opportunity to sneak in some math education. For example, you could have your child read the ingredients to you from the recipe card. This is a great opportunity to discuss what a quarter cup is and how it differs from a half a cup.
Reinforce your discussion of fractions by having your child measure the ingredients. Hand your child a collection of measuring cups and encourage him or her to pick out the right ones to use. You might challenge your child to measure a half cup of flour using a quarter cup measure. You could also ask your child to help you divide the recipe in half or multiply it by two. Younger children who aren’t quite ready for fractions can help you count the ingredients. For example, ask your youngster to add 10 raisins to the batter in each muffin cup.

At A Child’s World, our educators believe in the integration of physical movement within an academic curriculum to provide an enriching experience for each child. That’s why we send our preschoolers on active field trips. During last year’s Sports Week celebration, the preschoolers enjoyed observing fish in a pond, playing miniature golf, and bowling at the local lanes.
Watch this video to learn more about the field trips at A Child’s World. You’ll also hear the children describe their favorite experiences.

Early childhood education has come a long way since the early “Fun with Dick and Jane” books. Some pre-kindergarten programs have employed a brain-based approach to learning, which takes recent research into consideration. A brain-based approach uses specific activities to stimulate areas of the brain for optimal cognitive development. A combination of these activities, environmental stimuli, physical activities, and arts and crafts will help your child reach his or her full potential and set the stage for lifelong success.
An example of these activities might include integrating sign language into a lesson plan on basic math skills. A pre-kindergarten program that uses a brain-based approach also encourages children to learn by exploring the world around them. For example, the program might utilize themed classrooms with nature centers to create an environment that stimulates a child’s curiosity.
A Child’s World prides itself on offering a wealth of enrichment activities for our brain-based approach. Enroll your child in our pre-kindergarten or child care program today by calling (888) 861-7857.

The first few years of a child’s life are critical for all areas of development necessary to lifelong achievement. Young children who enroll in high-quality early education programs can more readily develop the neurological pathways needed for problem-solving skills. Once you enroll your child in a pre-kindergarten program, he or she will also learn valuable social and behavioral skills.
Learn more about early childhood development and the importance of pre-kindergarten programs by watching this video. The educator in this video discusses the importance of parental engagement in pre-kindergarten programs and how children prepare for school in these programs.
