Our Program

Our program develops the love of learning in your child through a variety of structured play activities and social experiences, in keeping with our philosophy that our children learn best through play. We focus on socialization to encourage happy, confident children with a strong sense of self.

When your child discusses Mayflower at home, you will hear about our activity centers which include art, science, reading, block building, small motor development and dramatic play. Your child will be involved in music enrichment, cooking projects and will form friendships with classmates.

Curriculum

A unit or theme plan is used at Mayflower to plan curriculum. Our monthly newsletter contains a calendar with themes highlighted. Each day is filled with different areas of learning, such as dramatic play, arts, science, story time, group time, games, large and small muscle activities, computer and special activities that coordinate with the theme. Music and Movement occurs twice a month with both classes coming together. The music curriculum is planned to help the children gain an appreciation of music. It also helps the children build self-esteem and experience the joy of singing and dancing.

Special Person

In our Duck class, each day a child is chosen to be the special person. As the special person, the child brings home the traveling Duck bag and may bring something special (book, toy, sibling) to share with the class that coordinates with the letter of the week. The child also gets special responsibilities during the day at school. Our children love their opportunities to be the Special Person and have so much fun finding items around their home to match the letter of the week.

Star of the Week

In our Bunny and Frog classes, each child is given the opportunity to be Star of the Week during the school year. Students create a poster with their families to tell the class about themselves and also enjoy special responsibilities during the week at school. This is always a great opportunity for students to learn more about each other and develop a strong sense of self within the classroom.
