At Discover Magical Moments Daycare, each classroom Teacher, Assistant Teacher, and Aide incorporate learning outcomes into their monthly curriculums.
Our staff has a trusting, supportive, and positive relationship in each classroom as well as throughout the Center. We take pride in hiring and retaining the best qualified personnel.
Discover Magical Moments Daycare offers a professional and inviting atmosphere for children where parents are always welcome. Our professional staff is aware that families today have different stressors unique to their situation, and we need to individualize each child’s care to meet their needs.
We offer structured lesson based on the MN approved Creative Curriculum from Teaching Strategies and the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress: MN Early Learning Standards. Creative Curriculum links curriculum and assessment in a continuing cycle for the parent / teacher team to build on to meet each child’s needs. This continuing cycle includes planning for assessment, collecting facts, analyzing and evaluating facts (within the parent/teacher team), planning for each child’s success within the group, and reporting on each child’s progress.
Creative Curriculum goals and objectives address four areas of development – social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. Our professional teachers work with each family to find what works for their child in the classroom setting.
All pre-kindergarten children experience our kindergarten readiness program the year prior to entering kindergarten. This program is one of our most popular with both the children and their parents. Our pre-kindergarten program works on all of the essential skills needed to enter kindergarten the following fall. The daily schedule follows that of a kindergarten classroom, and the curriculum is very similar to what the children will experience once they actually enter kindergarten the next fall. This program has received great reviews and parents state they believe this program has reduced the stress level for their child entering school.
Discover Magical Moments staff also offers individualized child care plans for families examples include but not limited to: toilet training for toddlers and early preschoolers, ADHD care, Asthma, Epilepsy, Sight, Hearing, Allergies to Foods, behavior plans, etc. Daily communication is extremely valued at Discover Magical Moments sends home written daily sheets each day (infant thru preschool) as well as encouraging parents to verbally communicate with teacher both in the morning and evening.
“It’s hard to put into words how thankful we are for your dedicated and caring staff, and how much we appreciate everything you’ve done for Brody. Having him attend Discovery Magical Moments was the best decision we have made for him. He has learned so much and we are comforted to know he is better prepared to start school in the fall. Thank you for all your teaching, dedication & patience with him. I know Brody will miss the staff and kids so very much. We are proud of, and will continue to recommend your center to anyone looking for great child care. Thank you again!”
