Nido Verde Di Reggio Emilia Pre-Toddler Program (One-Two-Year-Olds)
Specific skills are the basic requirements for the success of every child in life. These skills include:
- Social and Environmental Skills
- Emotional Skills
- Physical or Motor Skills
- Neurological Skills
- Intellectual Skills
The curriculum of our Spanish immersion daycare Austin covers all these growth aspects. The primary focus is to help the child fit in the environment and with peers. Yet, we have added few academic processes so that the child does not feel the odd one out later.
NVRE is a school of relationships and trusts more than academics. We know that we are taking responsibility for the children at a very tender age. We strive to earn the trust of our students and their parents. Our teachers emphasize growing professionalism along with helping the children grow. We support consistent growth. The management also observes and examines regular conversations and activities. This way, we improve and become better every day.
Highlights of Reggio Emilia Preschool Pre-toddler Program
There is one vital element of pre-toddler initial learning programs – communication skills. We focus on cultivating both verbal and non-verbal communication skills via our curriculum. In non-verbal skills, the child learns about how to express himself in front of others. Whereas in verbal, he learns languages. Via Spanish immersion, our students learn both Spanish and their native languages together.
“One grows by learning more every day” – we follow this fact. We offer a nurturing and safe environment where a child can explore and grow. Furthermore, he can share his learnings with the teachers and peers in his way. Our curriculum encourages and fosters creativity and imagination. We achieve it with the help of certain activities like drawings, music, and dramatic plays. The children learn sitting, walking, jumping, running, and dressing as motor skills. All our students love to take part and learn in the surrounding world created by us for them.
Every inch of growth is possible in the Reggio Emilia Preschool pre-toddler program. The students explore and develop in all aspects of life. NVRE emphasizes instilling self-confidence and a positive mindset in the students.
Learning about Practical Life
This form of learning connects the child to his/her environment and himself/herself. With us, the children can practice the adult activities they observe at their home. Apart from it, they learn eating, tying, buttoning, zipping, and hand-washing. They learn activities to keep the environment and themselves clean. Furthermore, they learn specific motor skills like standing straight, balancing, and cutting. Watering the plants, using dustbins, cleaning, and polishing are few other daily learnings.
Children perform by seeing and observing each other. It encourages their social skills as well. Moreover, they learn other skills like speaking, accepting mistakes, group participation as well.
Learning about Sensory Organs
The child observes and explores the world around him/her using his senses. We use certain safe materials to help children learn about their senses. They learn the concepts of smell, touch, hear, feel, taste, color, structure, and sound. They achieve it with the help of sensory materials along with their senses.
Learning about Language
Children learn both verbal and non-verbal languages. They learn to express themselves with the help of teachers and peers. Moreover, they learn their native languages via simple day-to-day activities. Via Spanish immersion, students can learn the Spanish language also. The native Spanish speakers and the books and materials help them learn it. They learn the languages via activities like conversation, stories, singing, etc.
Learning about Mathematics
Children learn this concept via real-life activities and their senses. It is a slow process that goes from concrete to abstract. The first step is counting the real-life objects or colorful pictures. Then it goes further with counting the written numbers. Once children have learned to count, here comes the next step. They learn about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division step by step.
Learning about Neuro-Movement
The students at NVRE pre-toddler program learn a lot about motor skills. The development of motor skills is proportional to neuro-development. By brain cells connect to the body via synapses with the help of motor activities only. It is vital because every other learning comes after neuro-movement learning.
It is an exciting part of learning via certain daily routines. It is essential for long-term fitness, balance, creativity, and energy as well.
