Children absorb everything. Every experience is a contribution to the personality being developed. Through continuous guidance and activities, our staff members facilitate the development of character traits like respect, obedience, honesty, self-control, fairness, confidence, and caring. We want the children to have a strong foundation on which to build. Skyers believes that the source of this strength is from a strong mind, body, and soul. They need to be well rounded individuals to be ready for the big world waiting for them.
The children are taught through games, music, dance, poetry, art, activity sheets, and much more. Hands-on experiences are very important. Everyday experiences and activities contribute to the children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. Developmental stages are determined on an individual basis, because each child learns at a different pace. When they leave Skyers Child Development Center, your children will not only be well learned academically, they will also be socially and emotionally ready for kindergarten.
