Daycare at Little Human Scholars

18/11/2015

Many people know that there is a difference between daycare and playschool or preschool, but do you know what the differences are?  At Little Human Scholars in Petaling Jaya, we offer playschool, preschool and either full or half daycare.  And while playschool and preschool classes typically follow a more structured routine than daycare, at Little Human Scholars we structure our daycare programme as well, so that children and parents can get the most out of their time with us.

So what goes on in our daycare?  What sort of structure or activities do we offer our daycare children?  For our patrons, we have two choices:

Half Daycare

Half daycare typically constitutes the second half the day, from 12:30pm onwards.  While we do alternate during some activities, such as playtime where we can offer everything from puzzles, to educational videos, music and movement, or free play, our centre is pretty consistent at keeping the little ones busy and entertained while mom and dad are occupied elsewhere.

Here is our half daycare schedule:

12:30pm           Lunch time

1:00pm             Clean up/play quietly

1:30pm             Nap time

3:30pm             Wake up and freshen up

4:00pm             Sing songs

4:30pm             Snack time

5:00pm             Playtime (Music, puzzles and educational videos)

6:00pm             Pick up!

After each meal or snack time, the children learn how to feed themselves, how to tidy up after they are done eating and playing, and how to be responsible for themselves.  We do our very best to offer a holistic and whole-brain approach to education, both scholastically and practically!

Full Daycare

Full daycare constitutes just that:  full day care.  From morning to evening we ensure that your child is well taken-care of, is learning through play, and is entertained and engaged.

Additionally, if we find that other activities or educational experiences are more beneficial to your child than that which is listed below, then we happily place your child in that class that best suits him or her.

For example, if you have opted for full daycare for your 2-year-old child, and the nursery isn’t offering them the challenge they need to learn and grow, then we will take the initiative to explore and discover what best suits your child; even if it means placing them in our playschool 1 class for the morning segment.  We would of course not do this without your permission and without having a sit-down discussion and assessment.

But for those who insist solely on daycare, here is what our structured daycare schedule looks like for children:

8:30am             Free play/Obstacle course

9:30am             Morning snack time

10:00am           Nursery Rhymes

10:30am           Flash Cards and phonics

11:30am           Story time

12:30pm           Lunch time

1:00pm             Clean up/play quietly

1:30pm             Nap time

3:30pm             Wake up and freshen up

4:00pm             Sing songs

4:30pm             Snack time

5:00pm             Music, puzzles and educational videos

6:00pm             Pick up!

 

We pride ourselves on offering the best play-based education for your child.  After all, we are whole-brained humans who can access and utilise not just the left brain for cognitive functioning, but both our left and right brain.  These two in combination make a formidable force in the world, and starting children at a young age to embrace this is invaluable.

If you are interested in registering your child for playschool or preschool, you are entitled to a free week trial (no strings attached), during any week you prefer, from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Our playschool, preschool and daycare centre is located in the heart of Petaling Jaya, near PJ Old Town, PJ Digital Mall, and University Hospital.

 

We look forward to meeting you and your child!
