A Journey in Learning

The Creative Wonder Learning Center is first and foremost a learning facility that seeks to balance learning, resting, and play time that all children need for healthy development. The CWLC Principles of Learning originate with State of Louisiana benchmarks for Kindergarten performance. With this in mind, we have identified necessary skills by children’s age groups. After graduating the CWLC, these skills allow children to continue as self sufficient Kindergartners.

We have five separate classroom wings in the main complex, one for each age group (Infants, One’s, Two’s, Three’s, and Four’s). Each age group has a specific curriculum that matches their level of understanding and development.

The curriculum includes an introduction to Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies, Art, French, Music, and Dramatic Play. Exposure to these critical subjects are essential at an early age to give the children the building blocks for success in Kindergarten. One year olds are exposed to these subjects on a weekly basis. We begin daily curriculum with the Two, Three, and Four year olds.


Additional key areas of teaching and development by age groups are defined below:

infant

Teacher to Child Ratio : 1 to 4 We offer more individual care by having fewer children than the state ratio.

Love : One main focus with infants is nurturing care.

Movement : Infants are very receptive to movement which enhances motor skills. Infants rotate between various supervised areas and activities for stimulation.

Feeding : Parents provide guidelines to aid in creating feeding schedules. At the parents' request, we will begin the transition of baby food to table food at 8-9 months of age.

Baby Sign Language : More than a trend in advanced childcare, sign language is a necessary learning tool that helps infants bridge the frustrating language gap.

Curriculum : Scheduled Weekly

Learning Basics : One year old’s begin a weekly exposure to Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Motor Skill development. one year old’s are also introduced to social skills such as sharing, outdoor play, and food utensils. Great care is taken for each child's first exposure to academics including numbers, letters, shapes and color. Singing with music is our preferred method for fun learning. A favorite with parents is the "Clean Up" song.

French : A basis of the French language is introduced.

Baby Sign Language : Although one year old’s have limited verbalization, they can develop communication skills. For instance, we teach them the signs for milk, more, water, thank you, etc. Bridging the gap of language and understanding with sign language opens new doors for one year old’s and their parents.

French : Development in the French language is continued at their age appropriate level.

Memorization : This is a very important building block for future success in school. Memorization through daily repetition is used frequently to develop this basic skill. For example, the Pledge of Allegiance is a great way to practice memorization.

Additional Activities : While supervised by teachers, two year old’s are introduced to different mediums, such as clay and paint, to create wonderful artwork for their parents.

Additional Skills : Threes year old’s also develop further social, communication, and table ability. Counting and manners follow suit. Many of the threes year old’s have begun the process of reading by the time they move into the four year old’s.
