Family-operated, Pitter-Patter Child Care Inc. provides more love than a corporate center along with maintaining a structured educational environment. We offer a print-rich setting that surrounds children with letters, numbers, and printed words that are an integral part of pre-school life. Kids are fascinated by these symbols of lines and circles that form words and their names. Our three-to-four year olds are introduced to simple worksheets such as tracing the letter A for Apple, whereas our four and five year olds trace and write the letter A and the word Apple.
Children will learn to recognize their name and, eventually, write and verbally spell their own name and their friends' names, too. The ability to print depends on muscle control, skill in recognizing symbols, and/or the ability to note the placement of lines in a symbol. As one child may develop the coordination of throwing a ball or riding a bike first, another may begin to manipulate a pencil and begin to print. We help children develop both their large motor skills and their fine motor skills.
