Educational Programs

The goal of each program at First Choice Childcare, Inc. is to provide a warm, nurturing, safe, and loving environment where self concepts are enhanced, independence is encouraged, and individuality is respected. First Choice Childcare, Inc. offers the following programs:

  Infant:

The Infant program is designed to allow infants to develop creative expression, and to foster the development of cognitive, communication, motor, and social/emotional skills. Infant teachers design a weekly curriculum that encourages development in all these areas. All infants receive a daily report detailing the specifics of their feedings, diaperings, and sleep times. This report also notifies parents if their child’s diapers or wipes need to be replenished.

  Toddler:

The toddler program enhances the skills initiated within the Infant curriculum. Toddler teachers design weekly activities that allow each child to work at their current skill level, all the while challenging them to achieve skills on the next developmental stage. The two year old class encorporates the Abeka curriculum in their daily lesson plans. Toddlers also receive a daily report detailing the specifics of amount eaten at meals, diapering, and sleep times. This report also notifies parents if their child’s diapers or wipes need to be replenished.
 

Pre-School/Pre-Kindergarten:

The pre-school and pre-Kindergarten programs currently use the A Beka curriculum. This is a phonics- based program developed by the Pensacola Christian Academy. It is widely recognized as one of the best curriculum programs available for Christian organizations. Pre-school and Pre-K teachers plan weekly themes and activites that foster social, emotional, cognitive, communication, and physical development.
 

School-Age:

The philosophy of the School-Age Program is to provide a warm and nurturing environment with a wide variety of activities designed to meet the needs of children, enrich their experiences, and allow them to release energy in safe and creative ways. The school-age teachers also plan field trips that allow children to explore the world beyond the walls of First Choice Childcare, Inc.
