Once our babies are mobile and on the verge of walking they move into our Wobblers room- where you'll find a room full of "almost toddlers" eagerly exploring the world around them. In the Wobblers room students

 

  • work on self help skill such as self-feeding and washing their hands

  • work on skills such as, sitting at a table, listening to a story, etc.  

  • begin to follow a "big kid" schedule where they transition out of cribs and onto cots

  • begin to use their words and sign language to express their needs before their words come in and to follow along with familiar songs and books

Once your child gets to preschool they will work on strengthening their academic skills and begin preparing for their school careers. In preschool students will:

  • work on recognizing colors, shapes and their name

  • work on refining their fine motor skills by learning how to work with scissors, markers, and other materials to strengthen their small muscles

  • work on gross motor skills by jumping, climbing, and running outside

Pre-K

Here at Victoria’s Castle Daycare we run a pre-k program to help ease students into their district pre-k or kindergarten program. We follow the pre-k foundation skills and standards and ensure that students are exposed to math, science, literacy and social studies daily. Their activities are NYS aligned and follow an educationally based curriculum with a weekly focus. In pre-K students will:

 

  • learn how to add and subtract

  • identify letters, days of the week, months 

  • identify patterns

  • learn different science topics, such as living and nonliving, solids, liquids and gases, animals and life cycles

  • learn about their communities, families and the world around them

School Age

Our school age program is designed to be a safe space for children who attend public or private elementary schools/ pre-k to be.

During the pandemic, Victoria's Castle Daycare is working in collaboration with the local school district to implement a functional and supportive environment where students in a virtual setting can thrive.
