Curriculum & Nutrition

“Little Rockets” follows a developmentally appropriate philosophy, that is, the program will be guided by the needs of the children that it serves.

Children are taught in a manner that matches the way they develop and learn. They are challenged just beyond the level of their present ability and are given constant opportunities to practice newly acquired skills.

In an infant room, we proudly use the EXPERIENCE BABY/Mother Goose curriculum.

We proudly implement THE CREATIVE CURRICULUM for preschool.

We know that good nutrition contributes to effective learning in children. Numerous studies have demonstrated that eating breakfast regularly will boost your child’s ability to learn, think quickly, pay attention, and even get along with others. One recent study on childhood nutrition found that those who eat breakfast raise their math grades and improve their school attendance records. Children who regularly have breakfast in the morning solve problems more easily and are less likely to be restless or irritable before lunch. Other studies indicate that skipping breakfast has a negative effect on attentiveness, verbal fluency, memory, and the brain’s ability to make use of new information.

In the future, we plan to transition to an in-house food program that will provide breakfast, lunch, and two snacks – one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Every lunch and snack will be nutritionally balanced and meet requirements regarding food components and portion size.

Until our in-house food program commences, parents may either pack a nutritious breakfast or serve breakfast to their child(ren) at home prior to arrival. Parents should pack a nutritious lunch and two snacks for their child(ren) to eat each day while in our care.
