Ms Tuyet's Class - Preschool 2

Hello, Preschool 2 Families! We have missed seeing all of our friends, but we are glad that our friends and families are staying safe during this time. In the month of April, we have been learning about insects. The children have had the opportunity to go on many nature walks around the center and near the pond. During our walks we have had the chance to see many bugs. The children are really good at pointing out and naming the various bugs, such as spiders, ants, bees, and ladybugs. In addition to searching for bugs, the children have been playing on the exercise equipment and playing near the pond. While at the pond, the children have been experimenting with sink or float—using rocks, stic

Ms Jessica's Class - Preschool 1

Finally, Spring has sprung! Ms. Jessica’s class has been busy enjoying the nicer weather by taking walks around the pond and track. We have watched the trees go from bare, to buds, then to full leaves. The children have loved picking wildflowers and watching the tulips bloom that Ms. Zareth planted last November. They even found new Easter eggs hidden along the tulips on Good Friday! Our preschoolers will continue to learn about the seasons of spring and summer. We are going to be watching Ms. Tuyet’s caterpillars turn into butterflies along with all things new as the seasons of spring and summer show us each year. Ms. Jessica

Ms KK's Class - Early Preschool 1

Happy May! Time sure is going by quickly, and we are enjoying every minute of it together! Things may seem a little unsure right now; however, we are remaining steadfast in learning while we play here at our center! We are making sure everyone stays on schedule and is keeping busy. The weather has been very good to us, and we have enjoyed time outside looking for signs of new plant life and studying the perfect way to plant our garden. The children are excited to start planting and weeding the garden, and of course, watching for signs of vegetation life! So much fun goes into the garden, and learning is key so that these children can contribute to their own families when they grow up. They k

Ms Shelby's Class - Toddler 3

This past month we have enjoyed welcoming Spring! The weather has been nice enough for us to start going outside to play again in the mornings. We have been taking daily trips to the flower gardens on our playground to admire our tulips. We have discussions about how pretty they are, and some of the children have been pointing out the colors they see. In other flower news, we are continuing to watch our Mother’s Day flowers grow in the classroom. We’ve planted flowers in individual pots for every child so that they can eventually take them home. Eventually, we will look over the progress pictures of our plants and have discussions about plants and how they grow. The children loved the Easter

Ms Amanda's Class—Toddler 1

Hello from T1! I just want to say that I think April certainly did not turn out as we all were expecting! These are challenging times, but I am proud of all of our students for being such troopers and overcoming and adapting to new situations. We miss each and every one of you who have been at home; your families bring so much joy and enrichment to our lives. We cannot wait for the days when our classrooms are filled with smiles and the laughter of all our students again. Until then I wanted to post a play dough recipe that could be fun to make with your children! Playdough ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup salt 4 teaspoons cream of tartar 2 cups lukewarm water 2 tablespoons of v

Ms Stormee's Class - Infants 2

Hello, Infant 2 Families! We hope all families are staying healthy and safe. We dearly miss all of you who haven’t been here this month, and we wish to see you soon. This last month we had an age group of five months to one year, and even with the age differences, these infants interacted very well, from sharing toys to playing in the same activity center, and especially making conversations by cooing. For this month we will be expecting some nice weather. We would like to enjoy going outside to explore nature in the spring. We also have Mother’s Day coming up, and we have prepared an activity for the infants to do for that special day. We will surprise our mothers with the results! Thank yo

Letter from the Director!

Dear Delaware Child Development Families, In our program, children get to fully experience adventure! Adventurous play could be the answer to a child’s craving and developmental need for physical activity. Therefore, we offer opportunities throughout the entire day for children to test their bodies' abilities and strength. Children in our program participate in appropriate physical risk-taking. Physical risk-taking is an important learning opportunity. When children take risks, teachers stay close by to support them in thinking through their choices and accomplishing their goals in a way that keeps others safe. An important part of supporting adventurous play is trusting that the child can m
