The Gingerbread House CLC is committed to providing your child with quality care by encouraging each child to express themselves through language, art, music, and physical activity. With the emphasis on learning through play, they are gaining knowledge and building socialization as well as self help skills that build up their self esteem, which is needed to succeed in all areas of life.
Every child/family that comes through our doors will be treated with love and respect, so that when they leave, they will be able to pass on the love and respect to others that they were shown.
The Gingerbread House is a Christian based facility. We sing songs about Jesus, read Bible stories, discuss the real meaning of Easter and Christmas, teach “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, “Respect thy father and mother”, incorporate Bible verse memorization in our lesson plans, and say prayers before each mealtime.
Our day will consist of the development of language skills, use of large and small muscle groups, use of materials that encourages creativity and imaginary play, indoor and outdoor gross motor activities, active and quiet play, individual and group activities. All aiding your children in learning new ideas and skills, allowing them to be exposed to a variety of cultures and experiences and protect them from excess fatigue or over stimulation.
Play is learning for life. Almost everything that children learn during their first six years is learned through play, and they work very hard at it! From the time they are born, without anyone telling them how, children stretch, pull, push, and move from place to place. Play develops children’s skills, teaches them to relate to their peers, and develop their own personality. Children have a profound need to play, climb, run, use their imagination, test themselves and challenge others, and above all to enjoy themselves. We are here to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for them to grow through play.
