Art Activities

Art is an important part of our family day care program, allowing for self expression and fine motor skill development. Children explore colors, textures and patterns, developing visual and sensory abilities along with imagination. Children create collages, use a variety of paint material, enjoy sticking, cutting, tearing, gluing and love to play with play-dough, goop and clay. These activities develop fine motor skills and help children express their feelings.

Dramatic play or pretend play or role play using kitchen sets, dolls, stuff toys, dress-up clothes, pretend food etc may be enjoyed by the child alone, or with other kids. When younger ones pretend play together, their social skills are enhanced. Participating in dramatic play involves cooperation, negotiation; sharing, problem solving, impulse control and appreciation of one another’s efforts.

Behavior (Good Manners/Bad Manners)

Good Manner and Bad Manners Logo

Children learn appropriate and inappropriate behavior by looking to us as examples. If we are anxious, angry, inconsistent and domineering, our children will be distant, unconcerned, punitive, and weak.  If we are self-controlled, confident, loving and just our children will be likewise. We teach children difference between good manners & bad manners by telling them stories, actions and live examples.


Sensorial Logo

Children learn to understand the world around them through the constant use of their senses. Activities such as play with finger paints, play-dough, shells, corn starch, different textured fabric etc provide an opportunity for children to observe the differences and similarities in what they see, hear, feel, taste and smell.
