Throughout the year we offer special programs that are available to all the children. Group interaction and socialization are important to the development of young children, but a little one-on-one can make them feel very special! Some programs are age/class specific and others require personalized sign up sheets.
The Magic of Music
Learning how to read music and developing an appreciation for playing a musical instrument at an early age can be beneficial to success. Early childhood is the time when children learn about their world primarily through the magical process of play. The substance of play in very young children is comprised of the environmental objects and experiences to which they have been exposed. If the music environment is sufficiently rich, there will be continuous and stronger appreciation of the arts as they mature. Through one on one instruction children are able to capture the magic of music.
Parents Night Out
Once a month we open from 6:00 PM-10:00 PM. We invite you to enjoy an evening out or in; knowing that your children are being cared for by trusted teachers in their comfortable surroundings. So go have dinner, see a movie or
enjoy a nice relaxing night in. The evening includes snacks, an interactive dinner and a festive dessert. Once full and comfortable, the children will be invited to begin the activity of the evening. At 8:30 a comfy, cozy room, with a movie, will be available for anyone who is sleepy. Otherwise, upon arrival, the parents will indicate when they would like rest time to begin for their child. If you need a certain date for special plans please let us know and we can try to schedule a night out to accommodate your families needs.
Hair Cut Day
Going to the hairdresser or barber can be a stressful experience for many children. We have a solution for you! Every 6 weeks we have a licensed professional hairdresser come to the center for haircuts. Miss Ashley is a licensed cosmetologist. She is wonderful with children and has a special manner that makes the experience stress-free and enjoyable. The children get to participate in this event with their friends which adds to the excitement of the day. We invite you to allow us to take this chore off your hands. You will find a sign-up sheet in the entrance of all of our centers each month.
Gymnastics and Dance with Miss Olivia
Hello! My name is Miss Olivia and I am the Preschool 2 teacher here at PMP of Sandy Hollow. I am excited to announce that I will be sharing my gymnastic/dance skills with the children once a week. I was a competitive gymnast for 11 years. During my gymnastics career I placed top 7 in the state and was able to represent Connecticut at the regional level. For the past 12 years I have coached at both the recreational and competitive level. I am United States of America Gymnastics certified as a professional coach, safe sport certified, and certified in CPR and First Aid. I also receive yearly training at USA Gymnastics Congress where I am taught new training techniques and ways to keep gymnastics fun and inviting for everyone. I am so excited to share my passion with your children and teach them different gymnastic techniques.
