Welcome To Magical Beginnings
Planting The Seed For Their Dreams To Grow
Program Overview & Schedule
All four Magical Beginnings locations provide breakfast for those students who are dropped off before 7:45 am. Morning and afternoon snacks are also provided and monthly breakfast and snack menus can be found on each classroom bulletin board. Toddlers and preschool children bring in everything they need for a successful lunch in an insulated lunchbox with an ice pack. Families provide breakfast, snacks and lunch for infants. All of our centers are Nut Free which means that no food items may contain traces of nuts; be processed on the same equipment as nuts or in the same factory as food that contains nuts. Please remember to check all labels as any food that is questionable will be sent home for everyone’s safety.
Our infant classrooms incorporate music and movement, reading and sensory play throughout each child’s day. Infants are all unique and each on his or her own schedule. Our teachers follow the individual schedule for each infant as it has been written by the child’s parent/guardian. As infants get older and closer to toddler age our teachers will work with parents/guardians to prepare for the transition to the toddler program.
Our toddler and preschool programs utilize a multi-age approach which allows our students to learn from their older peers while also serving as role model students and teachers to their younger peers. This approach also allows us to minimize the number of classroom changes for the children and enables them to build strong relationships with the other children in their classroom who are younger and older than them. Semi-annual assessments are completed on all toddlers and preschool students using Teaching Strategies Gold. Our teachers also utilize Teaching Strategies Gold to create their lesson plans and newsletters online. This allows them to share not only the newsletters and lesson plans online but also the assessments through your own parent portal which you create.
Our preschool classes also utilize Handwriting Without Tears to strengthen fine motor skills and teach pre-writing skills. Through a variety of hands on learning activities children learn upper and lower case letters using a developmentally appropriate curriculum designed to address all learning types.
