We use Zoo-phonics curriculum. We start introducing it in our Toddler and Beginner Rooms. The Preschool 1 and Pre-K Rooms use it at different levels, with different hands on activities.
The essences of Zoo-phonics:
1)The animal, drawn in the shape of the lowercase letters, help children remember the shapes of the letter. The alliterative names of the animals teach the letter sounds.
2)Letter sounds are taught before letter names.
3)Lowercase letters are taught before capital letters.
4)The body movement for each animal letter helps "cement" the phonemic information into memory.
5)The alphabet is taught sequentially and as a whole entity.
6)Short vowels are taught before long vowels.
7)Phonemic patterns (at, bat, fat, sat, etc.) are taught first rather than random word lists (of, it, then, was, etc.)
8)High frequency words are taught phonemically, not by sight.
9)Phonics is taught as an integrated part of the language process.
We are very excited to be teaching Zoo-phonics here at Kid's Care America. For more information you can visit their website at:
• Kid's Care America has taken numerous steps to ensure a safe and secure atmosphere in our facility. Access to the center is gained by typing in a code assigned by the director. Only parents and staff have the code to gain access. Emergency exits are located in each child's room and each exit is equipped with door mounted panic bars. A secured fence around the large playground area, full center fire alarm system, and video camera's throughout facility are more of the measures taken to provide a secure and safe environment.
