Wonder Years Programs
Infants – First Experiences Matter; They are PRECIOUS MOMENTS
We know from neuroscientists that our earliest moments—days, weeks, months—of life are a period of unparalleled brain development. It is a time when trillions of brain cell connections are made. Early experiences shape who we will become.
Toddlers – Everyday Experiences Shape Learning
Young children have specific windows of opportunity for achieving certain developmental milestones. Children’s bodies grow at a very rapid rate. Physical development affects children’s cognitive and social development, and readiness for school.
Preschoolers – I Have Self-Control; I Can Self-Regulate
Emotional literacy, the ability to recognize, understand, and appropriately express emotions, plays a big role in a young child’s capacity to learn. How a child feels will either support or hinder their ability to absorb information and have positive experiences.
Primary Caregivers – I Have a BIG Responsibility, and WYP Can Help
Primary caregivers are the first and the most important teachers. That is why you have a big responsibility. Taking the time to interact with your child’s teacher and participate in our program will create good memories (positive experiences) for you and your child to share.
