From weekly shapes, colors, and numbers. We encourage, stimulate and facilitate children’s growth in major development areas.
“Our kids are encouraged and inspired to be creative.”
Each week we have different bible stories that allow them to explore their faith through crafts, memory verses and story time. Our faith-based program allows for daycare hours while learning and gearing up for Primary School.
What’s the difference between fine and gross motor skills?
Motor skills are motions carried out when the brain, nervous system, and muscles work together. Fine motor skills are small movements — such as picking up small objects and holding a spoon — that use the small muscles of the fingers, toes, wrists, lips, and tongue. Gross motor skills are the bigger movements — such as rolling over and sitting — that use the large muscles in the arms, legs, torso, and feet.
Toddler fine motor skills: Stacking, sorting, and stringing
From carefully balancing one block on top of another to placing colored rings on a pole, stacking (and knocking down, of course) is a toddler tradition. It’s also a fantastic way for your child to use her ever-more-nimble fingers and to work on sorting and building skills. Your child will experiment with blocks of different sizes, shapes, and colors.
When will I know whether my child is a righty or a lefty?
Most children start showing a clear preference for one hand or the other around age 2 or 3, while some do it as early as 18 months. But don’t worry if your child doesn’t seem to care which hand she uses to hold her/his fork — some children remain ambidextrous (using both hands equally) until they’re 5 or 6.
Parents are welcome to bring a cake to school on your child’s birthday. We sing happy birthday and make it a special day for your little one.
Birthday Parties at Mighty Ark
Also as a parent of the school, you may use the school as a party venue on the weekends if required for a small fee. You welcome to chat to your child’s Teacher for more information or you can give us a call.
