You might think you have to choose between ‘daycare’ and ‘preschool’ for your child. Luckily, you don’t have to make that choice. A good daycare program helps your child advance along with their peers, creates a safe, healthy environment to grow, and presents opportunities for fun and learning. That’s what makes Kid’s Corner the perfect daycare in Gilbert and Mesa, Arizona.
Is Daycare a School?
Kid’s Corner is an educational experience designed to help your child grow and be ready, both academically and socially, for elementary school. For our younger children (infant through preschool age), that includes teacher-led activities created specifically for each age of development.
Kid’s Corner’s daycare curriculum includes programs and activities for both infants and toddlers. Children at these stages of development require a program that helps them physically, provides proper care, and aides development through social interaction with other children and their teachers. Every interaction has a purpose, from toys to songs to books and physical activities. Each of these considers your child’s interaction with other children and our teachers.
Our Daycare Curriculum focuses on these areas of development:
- Cognitive abilities
- Language and reading
- Social skills
- Emotional growth
- Physical fitness
Preschool versus Daycare: What’s the Difference?
At Kid’s Corner, we view our Daycare program as an extension of our preschool program. It is a developmental program created to do more than provide a space for your child during the day. As mentioned above, we create a very specific curriculum to help your child’s growth and development so that they are ready to take that step into preschool and then into kindergarten.
Sometimes the word, ‘daycare’, is used in a negative way, assuming it’s nothing more than a low-cost, mass babysitting outfit. Once you see the Kid’s Corner campus, get to meet our staff, and see our approach to your child’s growth, you’ll see why our daycare services actually take a preschool approach, utilizing established, age-appropriate curriculum for the younger children.
