Summer Camp Program

 

At Kidz Paradise, we strive to provide the children in our care with educational and exciting activities.  For our summer camp program, we go on field trips to local proprietors such as to the pool, movies, bowling, roller skating, the museum, local parks and much more!  We also plan art and craft activities and group games.  Who doesn’t love an intense game of Jeopardy?!  Your Childs summer will be busy and eventful at Kidz Paradise!

Kidz Paradise Curriculum

Kidz Paradise offers an Emergent and Integrated Curriculum Model to all the children in the building.  We encourage the children to use their senses to explore and learn about the world around them.  We look at the interests of the children in our care and research activities that will help these interests to flourish in each child.  All the teachers in our program extend the educational experiences across each developmental domain.  Our goal is to provide the children with the gradual progression of educational skills and self-help skills they need to succeed in future schooling.

Emergent curriculum emerges from the children, but not only from the children (see “Sources of Emergent Curriculum,” p. 68). Curriculum emerges from the play of children and the play of teachers. It is coconstructed by the children and the adults and the environment itself. To develop curriculum in depth, adults must notice children’s questions and invent ways to extend them, document what happens, and invent more questions. The process is naturally individualized.  http://www.naeyc.org/yc/files/yc/file/201203/Heritage_v67n2_0312.pdf 

Integrated curriculum is a way to teach students that attempts to break down barriers between subjects and make learning more meaningful to students. The idea is to teach around themes, or “organizing centers” that students can identify with, such as “The Environment,” “Life in School,” or more traditional areas like “Myths and Legends.”  http://www.archeworks.org/projects/tcsp/ic_guide_p2.html
