Let the fun begin!
T.V.: I try to limit the children's exposure to T.V; colouring, crafts, story time, and interactive games are promoted. If T.V is on it is limited to educational DVD's/T.V i.e Baby Einstien, Treehouse . We do have "Movie Days" which are age appropriate.
Free Play: Consists of interactive games and toys, puzzles, dressup, singsong, colouring, painting, show and tell, and outdoor play. I interect and play with your children during this time.
Outside Play: The children may play outside anytime and will be supervised at all times. It is imperative that your child has appropriate clothing for outside play. If your child does not have the required clothing for outside play all the children will have to remain inside for free play. Please check the local weather before bringing your child to our care facility and provide them with appropriate outerwear so the children don't miss out on some fun in the Calgary sun! We do lots of day trips to local attractions including Honey Farms, Big Rock, Kayben Farms, Saskatoon Berry Farm and Spray Parks, Zoo, Spruce Meadows etc etc. I ask that children have a valid Kayben's Farm pass during the warmer months.
Show and Tell/Belongings: Your child is welcome to bring anything of comfort from home that he or she wishes; however keep in mind it is sometimes difficult to keep track of these items particularly if they are small. Please provide a change of clothes for your child to be left at dayhome, alternatively you can bring a bag with your child's items daily. Please provide all diapering needs for your child. If your child is using sippy cups and bottles these will need to be provided as well as formula and baby food. Auntie Bee's daycare does not accept responsibilty for lost or damaged goods belonging to your child (this includes your childs clothing).
Nap Time: My home provides a cozy sleeping area for your children which includes playpens, and sleep mats. Fresh linens and cuddly soft toys (age appropriate) are provided daily. All our bedding is fresh and super comfy! I do my best to give each child his or her own bedroom to sleep in. Children who are not sleepy can read a book or play quietly.
Art and Craft: We will love doing crafts and painting as well as science experiments. The craft area is readily available to all the children at anytime, however we also schedule craft-time in the afternoon. They get to bring these home to show you their talent!
Learning: Children are taught ABC, Colours, shapes and numbers and much more!
As mentioned before we focus on your childs individuality and creativity, keeping that in mind the schedule may change and is flexible depending on their needs. We offer a loving and nurturing environment for your little ones to learn and grow in.
