Welcome to the Early Childhood Programs at Armada Area School’s. This program is for children who are 2½ to 11 years of age. Our curriculum philosophy is curriculum based on “Active Learning”. We believe children learn best through hands-on experiences. Our children are guided through a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate curriculum. Activities are planned that will enhance the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social aspects of every child.
We believe that children should be able to grow in independence and see themselves as capable individuals with the ability to make decisions. We enhance this independence by encouraging choices, exploration, and helping to promote listening skills.
Our Preschool programs use the “Handwriting without Tears” curriculum and DLM Early Childhood Express (McGraw Hill) to introduce handwriting and letter recognition skills to our little ones. This curriculum helps them become familiar with letters, numbers, and pencil grasp through song, rhyme, and play. They are very prepared for Kindergarten and it was all fun and “no tears”. We supply a warm, loving, and accepting learning environment to achieve this goal.
Our School Age Child Care (S.A.C.C.) Program is a planned program of activities for our children joining us before and after school.
We provide a nurturing, healthy, and safe environment for your child. We will have many stimulating and creative ideas for your child during his/her non-school hours with us.
Our philosophy and goal is to assist your child in developing and promoting social skills and creative expression with additional enrichment activities before and after school.
