Programs

Infant Program (Age 1)

The focus of the Infant Program at Great Beginnings Learning Center is to learn through play. Our infants learn by exploring their surroundings both indoors and outside. They learn gross and fine motor skills along with social skills with teacher directed and independent play. They will be engaged in activities such as art, music and movement and storytime. Our teacher monitors playground play while encouraging the children to climb, slide, swing and ride trikes.

We communicate daily with our parents via a daily report sheet which details your child’s activities, nap, diaper changes and what they ate. Our teachers are also available to talk one on one with you about any concerns you may have. If you live or work in the DeLand area and are interested in learning more about our Infant Program, you can contact us at 386-943-4007.

At Great Beginnings Learning Center we take great pride in being a learning facility. Our three year olds in the Preschool Program are at a great age for learning and we will focus on developing their letter recognition, phonics, letter sounds, number recognition and basic handwriting.

We will use Beyond Centers and circletime curriculum. This is what our learning will be based off of. We encourage learning through play to develop our social and emotional skills as well as our motorskills. Our teachers will schedule individual meetings with you periodically to keep you updated on your child’s progress.

This program is free to all four year olds who turn four on or before September 1st. We offer wrap around care before and after VPK at an additional charge.

Our VPK program prepares children for Kindergarten. We focus on reading, writing, basic math, art, music and playtime both indoors and outside. The children will learn both upper and lower case letter recognition. Letter sounds will be learned along with counting and number recognition.

We celebrate milestones throughout the year and end VPK with a graduation.
