Doorway To Learning Enrichment Center, Inc. has a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on literacy and learning skills. We offer the following programs: INFANTS (6 wks – 12 mos) A nurturing learning environment for our infants sets its pace around the needs and unique differences of each baby. The teacher and assistant center the day around each child while meeting basic needs like food, diapering and naps.
TODDLERS (12 mos – 24 mos) Toddlers are growing and learning new skills daily. In providing a program for toddlers, the teacher and assistant understand that children learn more by exploring. In planning, the teacher and assistant are prepared to be flexible and spontaneous. Our program involves appropriate activities in a variety of areas, including fine and gross motor skills, language, music and art.
TWOS (24 mos – 36 mos) Twos need more stimulation as they work on becoming independent. Their teacher and assistant respect this, and allow opportunities for the child to be responsible and to make choices. Discovering is a big step for this group, who is becoming more aware of their bodies. This developmental stage makes potty training an easy and successful transition.
PRESCHOOL (36 mos – 48 mos) Preschoolers are usually most responsive to activities in which they are involved. The teacher and assistant prepare a preschool curriculum which includes activities centered on science, math, movement and music and creative art in small and large groups. Their teacher also encourages emotional, social and self-discovery. Our program prepares 3-year-old children for continuous success as they get ready to enter pre-k (pre-kindergarten) school readiness programs. PRE-K (48 mos – 60 mos) Our pre-k program is continually enriching our children with the learning tools necessary to prepare them for kindergarten. With emphasis on literacy (reading and writing) skills, we follow the guidelines set forth by the Florida Readiness Performance Standard, “No Child Left behind” campaign. Our program is enriched with the building blocks of success for each child’s need. Our teacher holds a four-year degree and has an assistant at all times to give each child a period of one-on-one interaction. This allows the child to grow at his or her own comfort and pace. At the end of our program each child is well prepared for kindergarten success.
SCHOOL AGE (5 yrs – 12 yrs) Our after school enrichment program prepares our children to continue to succeed. Our teacher and assistant provide help with homework Monday through Thursday for 45-minute intervals. This help session is provided after snack and is followed with a planned activity. Our activities include, but are not limited to, arts and crafts, cooking and outdoor sports. We also provide before and after school transportation to area schools.
Our programs don’t stop there! We have fun and enriching field trips on school holidays as well as spring and summer breaks.
