At Children's Learning Adventure®, we work hard to create curriculum programs that teach your kids real world skills that help them become the best learners. October’s curriculum deals with Meeting Our Neighbors. Keep reading to learn more about what kids will learn from this program:
Learning About the Community
Learning more about the community helps children feel more comfortable where they live. This month’s curriculum will help kids get to know their environment by introducing them to the people and the places of their community. From seasonal changes to caring for the community, our teachers will work with your children to help them learn more about the area in which they live.
Teaching Kids How to Act in the Community
Another important element of this month’s curriculum is teaching children how to interact with other people in their community. The teachers will work on concepts of responsibility, community cleanup, and safety to ensure that children start learning the skills they need to become contributing members to their community. Seeing how they fit into the idea of community helps your children improve their social skills.

Teachers will also take advantage of the season to teach the kids about fall and what to expect from the new season. They will be given the opportunity to explore outside the classroom to learn more about the changing seasons. They will also learn how to use tools and serve as community helpers.
At Children's Learning Adventure®, every month gives our teachers the opportunity to provide your children with new information about the world in which they live. With childcare, preschool, and after-school care programs, we help your children gain confidence in their ability to learn so they have a successful educational career. We have locations in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Texas to give you and your kids easy access to our programs. For more information, visit us online or call (888) 674-1487.

Since recycling is an essential part in creating a sustainable world, it is necessary for adults to teach children its importance. It can be difficult for young kids to grasp abstract concepts. Actively participating in tangible activities that demonstrate recycling can be a great way for them to learn what recycling is and how it affects the world. You can help your young one to learn recycling as part of his or her everyday routine; choosing a school and day care programs that teach fundamentals of recycling, nature, and the environment is also important.
Make Your Home a Recycling Environment
You can separate the trash and recycling bins in a fun way by making sure they are different colors. This can even turn into a project to develop creativity by allowing your kids to decorate the different containers. During ordinary activities at home, you can teach your children which items are recyclable and which are not. Creating a game or contest can be a great way to incentivize your kids to practice recycling different household items every day. People tend to focus on the kitchen, but other rooms in your house can be good places to show your kids different recyclable items as well. For example, you can explain that their stuffed animals can be donated to charity when they’re done with them.
Turn Recycling into a Joint Activity
A fantastic way to teach your children is to take field trips together that encourage recycling. You can take them to a park or beach where there may be trash, and then explain how it negatively affects the environment. Bring gloves and a trash bag to show them how to take action. You can also volunteer at your young one’s school or after school care program to help with different recycling initiatives or waste-free lunches.

The world is becoming more interconnected every day. As different cultures and lifestyles mesh together, it is increasingly important to teach children the value of respect. In school and day care programs, children will meet people of all different ages, ethnicities, sizes, and capabilities. When a child respects all of these different types of people, he or she will learn the immeasurable worth of how to collaborate with others. Fostering a community that is based on peaceful collaboration is a key part of the foundation to a diverse society. Young boys and girls learn these values through observation of others. Adults should be aware of what they say and do, since children will model themselves after those behaviors. In today’s world, kids are also exposed to a lot of messages through different media. Adults can reinforce the positive messages they see and can use the negative messages as a learning opportunity to teach children the difference between the two.
Children’s Learning Adventure provides a wide range of child care programs to fit your and your young one’s needs. We provide our teachers with extensive training in order to create inclusive learning environments and curricula that encourage a sense of local and global community.
