Little Movements Day Care Curriculum

Cheerful Children

Little Movements Day Care maintains a schedule, but is flexible to follow your child’s natural curiosity regarding the world and their immediate environment. Children learn through play and exploration. Our open designed shelf units are for the child to choose his/her own activities to develop independence.
