It’s a Wrap for 2022! Welcome to 2023!
The last month of 2022 was exciting, featuring our student’s holiday concert, activities with our families, and a visit from Santa and the Hillsborough Fire Department. These events were a wonderful way to end our year, and we are grateful to start a beautiful new year with all our children and families. We will continue to feature all our news online, on ProCare, and on social media. Please follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AllDayLearningCenters and Instagram:
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.
Our Arts Program Is Unique to Our School
The arts are a necessary component of our STEAM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). Creativity is integral for sparking ingenuity and innovative thinking. An artist and specialized art educator designed the creative part of the program. Our art rooms are fully stocked with all the components for the highest quality arts program. We introduce students to the work of a famous artist each week. By standing on the shoulders of giants and discussing the masters, our teachers inspire our budding artists to look at the style and make their own unique masterpieces. Our young artists produce works based on the art from Keith Haring, Yayoi Kusama, and Claes Oldenburg.
How We Learn: A Tailored Curriculum Is the Best Curriculum
For over 50 years, All Day Learning Centers has been a pioneer in the Hillsborough community. Our robust curriculum nurtures children' social, emotional, and academic growth. It’s not a cookie-cutter curriculum; instead, our qualified teachers and staff combine the three popular preschool curriculums: the Creative Curriculum, Healthy Choices, and Kindness Curriculum.
