Introducing the Ages & Stages Questionnaire

We are excited about adding the Ages & Stages Questionnaires (Third Edition (ASQ-3) at All Day Learning Centers for all our children. This tool helps track children's development from the age of one month to 5.5 years old. It's easy for parents to use and is the most widely used tool of its kind worldwide. Research has shown that the sooner we check a child's development, the better they can reach their full potential. We'll begin using this tool in October, right after our Back to School Night. We appreciate your cooperation as we aim to provide the best learning environment for your child to thrive.

  • March Means New Kindermusik!

Our older students are starting the "Let's Play" unit. This month, they will experiment with imaginative play. During class, the kids will recite two poems and use their hands to wave, clap, shake, and wiggle their fingers along with the words. Click here to learn more about the Kindermusik program.
  • Classes Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday
    The Cat in the Hat came to visit our classrooms and read a story to our students in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. He brought Thing 1 and Thing 2 too! The students were excited and many students couldn’t wait to give Cat in the Hat high fives and hugs!
  • Enjoying Our Multicultural World
    Our students understand that our world comprises people from all parts of our planet and embrace others easily when they learn more about them. We enrich our curriculum with traditions from many cultures and religions throughout the year. Lunar New Year Our children learned about the Year of the “Bunny” this week. They tried moon cake, colored a Year of the Rabbit sheet, played Lunar New Year bingo, and scratched off their fortune! Black History Month At the youngest ages, children make inferences about their world through their senses—they hear everything and notice more than adults! Without thinking about it, children notice if a crayon box matches their skin tone or their dolls or action figures “look like them.” It may seem like a small gesture, but it’s significant for our children that we add skin-colored crayons in all our art rooms. This month, we will read “A Kids Book About Racism” (A Kids Book Company), a kid-friendly approach to this critical topic. Our children will learn about the contributions of famous Black people in society over the next few weeks. St. Valentine’s Day Love is in the air! We look forward to Valentine’s Day parties in all the classrooms on February 14th. We know how hard it can be for everyone to find a babysitter! We’re also offering our parents a date night on Friday night, February 10, 2023, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.! Cost: $40 per child or $60 per family. Sign-up here:

  • Kindermusik Program Teaches Our Children “Steady Beat”
    Our children love the Kindermusik Program we have incorporated into our curriculum. You can help your child develop the “steady beat” concept at all age levels through lap bounces, instrument play, and dancing. “Steady beat gives children the ability to walk effortlessly, speak expressively, and even regulate repeated motions such as riding a bicycle, brushing teeth, or dribbling a ball,” according to Kindermusik. While children move to the beat with their bodies instinctively, they learn to control their movements. Children following along or creating their own movement is essential to a child’s early development.
  • Highly-acclaimed Kindermusik Is Coming!
    We are so happy to bring aboard Kindermusik, the internationally-known music curriculum that studies have shown can boost brain activity, language learning, movement, creativity, and social-emotional development. Our mission is to incorporate all the components that are time-tested and proven to promote early childhood development for all our students. Kindermusik is based on a music and movement program developed by educational experts in the 1960s and has benefits for all our students, including our infants.
