Butterfly Philosophy:

My child directed and play based learning academy has an intentional goal to give children a variety of opportunities to learn about their environments.

Structured and unstructured learning times are important and intentionally set up the environment for your child to have new and fun learning experiences.

I start by getting to know the whole child and meeting the child where they are at and then tailor a lesson plans to meet the need of each child.

Butterfly Academy provides early childhood education and care for children to help them develop their individual skills and make them ready to learn when they start school. Our program provides early childhood education and care for children from various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Butterfly Academy builds on the individual child's social skills so they are able to join groups successfully, show empathy and have meaningful interact. We will have established routines, class rules and focus on language skills, cognitive, social- emotional development and so they positive experiences.

Butterfly Academy provides activities so children are using their executive function skills, strengthening their fine and gross motor skills. I create tailored curriculum to support and strengthening children’s learning and development.

Emotional and self-regulation skills are important and children will have opportunities to practice adapting to behaviors depending on the situation, to control impulses and to shift attention. Children are learning new words daily and storing new information in their growing in their brains.

We will continue to practice how to regulate our behaviors and problem-solve when faced with challenges. We will work on delayed gratification and being present during discussions.
