We have been given a grant from the Sweet Dreamzz program supported by businesses in our community. This program is committed to improving children’s health, well-being and academic performance by providing sleep education. Classroom teachers receive training, lesson plans and classroom materials to weave sleep education into their learning curriculum for two weeks. At this meeting they will provide parents with information to learn about the curriculum and how teachers, parents and students work together so that the preschoolers can get the sleep necessary to prepare them for lifelong learning.  We believe that this is such an important issue for preschoolers and their parents that we are offering two opportunities to attend this parent meeting.  Please mark your calendar to come to this workshop on Friday December 4th from 10:00 to 11:30 am (this meeting offers Arabic translation) OR Thursday, December 10 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm (this meeting offers Spanish translation) at the Farmington Community School.

Farmington Early Childhood Centers have a philosophy based on the interaction of the child and his/her unique experiences, guided and supported by staff, to insure the fulfillment of each child’s individual potential. We, as a staff, are committed to recognizing and adapting to each child’s individual differences and learning styles. This is accomplished through a productive play-based curriculum which is developmentally appropriate. This curriculum is implemented through hands on activities, which are child-centered and facilitated by the teacher and through interactive events for the whole family. The success of the program is enhanced by the partnership of family, community, and school staff. By providing a safe and healthy environment, a child will be able to accept challenges and take risks in preparation for becoming a thoughtful problem solver.

Our Spring Extravaganza Family Event helps teach our children about the importance of recycling.
