3 to 5 Year Old Daycare

Lil’ Sneakers offers an educational day care experience for 3 to 5 year olds. Weekly themes cover a wide range of relevant topics that brings direction and focus to our activities of art, language arts, social studies, and science. The center-based room allows varied experiences throughout the day that encourage a lengthening attention span. Each child will spend time in imagination, home living, blocks and transportation, manipulatives and table top toys, puzzles, the sensory table, and our science area. Handwriting skills, arts and crafts, calendar, alphabet and number recognition, and counting skills are also a part of your child’s day.

Day care gives each child time for socialization in a safe environment. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack is provided for everyone allowing proper table manners to be encouraged daily. Sharing, taking, turns, and cleaning up are also an integral part of your child’s everyday experience.

Language is encouraged during all aspects of the day. Not only is increasing single word vocabulary important but speaking in complete sentences and the use of “please”, “thank you”, and “may I” is also stressed. Descriptive language is, also, continuously encouraged. Increased vocabulary aids in lessening frustration when the need for verbal communication arises.

Outdoor play is an integral part of each day. Lil' Sneakers has a large grassy area for outdoor games and climbers, slides, seesaws, a basketball court, and water/sand tables for play.  Parents are encouraged to provide appropriate outdoor play apparel as the children go outside twice a day, weather permitting, all year long.

Daycare and Preschool

Since the 3 and 4 year old room is in operation all day, those children in our Preschool have a place to go if the parent is working or going to school. Children can start in our day care, switch to Preschool, and then return to the day care room after school.
