Art

Painting, coloring, drawing, and other forms of creative art are an important part of the child care curriculum.  Using art tools helps children develop small muscle coordination and control. Art gives children an opportunity to express their ideas and feelings, and it allows children to achieve and expand their creativity.

Music

I

Children of all ages express themselves through music. Even young infants sway, bounce, or move their hands in response to music.

Music is a strong force in our lives and the lives of children. Music invites us to listen and respond and often leads us to create.

Movement

Music leads to movement. It's hard to listen to music without moving in some way, even if it's just moving your toes, head, or fingertips! Movement is how we interact with our environment and define the space we occupy in the world. We move to explore. Crawling leads to walking, and walking leads to hopping, skipping, and jumping.

 Math is everywhere, and it’s more than just learning numbers. When children sort crayons by color, put puzzles together, build with blocks, count their raisins during snack, and sing “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed,” they are learning about math. These kinds of hands-on learning activities create a solid foundation for children to understand shapes, sizes, length, addition, and subtraction. 

Literacy and language develop together in children. Reading and writing develop along with speaking and listening. And it all begins at birth with a child’s first cooing. There are many ways child care providers can boost children’s language skills at different ages.  We begin with sight words, matching  games and repetition.

Educational Toys

Children love to play outdoors. It is a wonderful place to test one’s physical abilities and to just have fun.  We are outside twice a day weather permitting. 

Purple Rose also has a inside gym that includes: ping pong, basketball, foosball, air hockey, chalkboard wall and more.
