Pre-K Programs

At Tiny Tot Child Development Center we provide a safe, healthy, child-friendly environment where caring adults nurture and guide children as they participate in carefully planned play activities that are preparing our children for kindergarten.

We are proud that our developmentally appropriate educational program is in place for all of our children regardless of the services they receive, so whether your child attends Tiny Tots for child care, early intervention, or PA Pre-K Counts, rest assured that they are receiving the highest quality experiences at all times of the day where play and learning go hand in hand.

Curriculum

We use The Creative Curriculum from Teaching Strategies, Inc., a nationally recognized research based curriculum to guide our educational program for the children. The curriculum goals are aligned with the Early Learning Standards from the PA Department of Education. We focus on teaching children skills to prepare them for kindergarten and give them a good beginning to be successful in school.

Our teachers focus on “the whole child” and our goals for children address all aspects of development:

  • Social/Emotional Development: children’s feelings about themselves, the development of responsibility and their ability to relate positively to others.
  • Physical Development: children’s large and small muscle development that enables them to move and manipulate objects.
  • Cognitive Development: children’s thinking skills, including the development of symbolic and problem-solving skills.
  • Language Development: children’s ability to communicate through words, both spoken and written.

Curriculum content includes:

  • Literacy
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • The Arts
  • Science
  • Technology

Play is children’s work. Through play children develop relationships, sharpen physical skills, and construct their knowledge of the world around them. It is the most effective way of learning for young children.”
