The Mother Goose Time curriculum weaves 33 important skills into engaging discovery projects and fun games. This well-rounded curriculum supports your child’s development in crucial areas.
- Social and emotional development
- Physical development
- Language and literacy development
- Mathematics and reasoning development
- Social studies development
- Science development
- Creative development
- Second language acquisition and development
Your child will enjoy developmentally-appropriate hands-on learning experiences and activities while building a solid foundation for kindergarten and primary school. We plan fun and engaging field trips to reinforce what your child is learning in the Mother Goose Time curriculum.
Cuddle Bugs, 0 – 2 Year Olds
The top priority for your cuddle bug is a safe environment in which your child can explore the world. We encourage babies to form strong attachments – important for developing trust in the world.
At these ages, children thrive when exposed to a variety of safe sensory experiences. For this reason, sensory experiences are a regular part of our daily schedule. We provide a wide variety of toys of differing textures, colors, and sizes. Plus, we create a variety of play experiences such as water play and outdoor time.
We plan a wide variety of fun, educational field trips, including:
- Pumpkin patch
- Little Farm petting zoo
- Tacoma Children’s Museum
- Seattle Children’s Museum
- Seattle water fountain
- Seattle Center
- Springbrook Trout Farm
- Local parks
- Glow golf
- Alki Beach
- Charlie Safari
- lots more
Families are important, so we plan a variety of activities that include parents and siblings.
- Easter egg hunt in the dark
- 4th of July picnic
- Movie night
- Chuck E Cheese family night
- Summer reading challenge
- Thanksgiving feast
- Christmas party
- and anything the parents and Jazzmine think of!
