The CBPSA Difference...

The first years of your child's life are special because great developmental strides are made as your child moves toward independence.  Progress is continually evident in your child's emotional growth, social skills, verbal communication, intellectual awareness, and physical capability.

Creative Beginnings Pre-School Academy's program has been designed to nurture the full range of these developing skills and interests in a small group setting.

Creative Beginnings focuses on three important developmental learning areas: socio-emotional, cognitive and physical development.  Through attention to these areas, an integrated and effective developmental approach to learning is achieved.

 

Socio-Emotional           At Creative Beginnings, children gain independence and self-control by learning to trust others and by learning the appropriate ways to take initiative while respecting others. They are also encouraged to make decisions, use reasoning skills, practice listening, explore their environment and express, understand and handle their feelings. They are also guided to expand their attention by choosing to persevere at specific tasks for extended times. We focus on helping young children enhance self-esteem, exhibit positive attitudes and demonstrate pro-social behavior. This is achieved by encouraging children to help each other, giving them words they can use to express how they feel and encouraging cooperation instead of competition.

Cognitive Children learn by doing. They learn simple concepts, then build on them to tackle bigger and more complex tasks and ideas. By using their senses, infants and toddlers discover that objects have weight, volume, color and texture. Preschoolers and kindergartners learn by interacting with materials and with other people.

Physical Gross motor development includes activities like throwing, catching, skipping, climbing and balancing. The Creative Beginnings environment provides a safe space, equipment and plenty of time for children to practice new skills. Mastering gross motor skills leads to the ability to gain fine muscle control and coordination.
