Your toddler or preschooler probably spends most of his or her time running around and being active. At Today’s Life & Child Care, we understand that children learn best and progress through motor-development milestones when movement is involved.

Our child development center aspires to provide your child with as many opportunities as possible before heading to kindergarten. We also like to make life easier for our busy parents by offering enrichment opportunities that are either part of your child’s daily agenda or brought in-house and offered for an additional fee.

In order to help your child reach his or her full potential, we’ve developed enrichment programs that aid in early childhood development and use some of your child’s endless energy. Aside from our core programs such as Spanish and music, we are always looking for new ideas for programs that will introduce your child to new activities and skills. If there is a program you would like to see at Today’s Life & Child Care, contact us today!

What is an enrichment program?

Enrichment programs help your newborn, baby or toddler receive a well-rounded early development program outside of the home. Get them involved in other things beyond the regular classroom and care of socializing, core learning and other aspects of daycare. These programs can help kids explore new interests they might not have known they even had!

What kind of enrichment programs do you offer?

Today’s Life offers numerous enrichment programs to immerse your child in stimulating and exciting activities. We offer music programs to help children express themselves and explore their creativity, while also enhancing other collaboration and learning abilities. We offer Spanish language programs to help children explore a new way of communicating. Promoting a second language helps children learn in other subjects as well as become a deft communicator. Our Yoga programs may be unique, but they help motor function, balance and help your child understand their own mental thought and relation to their environment. Our obstacle course is a great way to help kids problem solve and effectively communicate in quick succession while testing and refining their physical abilities.

Why are enrichment programs important at daycare or childcare centers?

At Today’s Life, we are as invested in your child’s development and care as much as you are, so we want to provide as many opportunities as possible to ensure your child has every chance to explore their interests and have a holistic daycare. Enrichment programs help your child’s development in other areas of their lives, both physically and mentally. Teach them to approach challenges with a different perspective and learn in new ways, they will be able to take these experiences with them through life to build good habits and skills.

What do children like about enrichment programs?

They like the break in the day from the normal curriculum or activities for the day. Enrichment programs stimulate children uniquely, so it’s no wonder they are excited for these offerings. Not to mention, they are often energizing from both a mental and physical perspective, so the classes and programs can often feel tangibly rewarding.
