What We Are Learning | Investigating Balls

Investigating BallsChildren love balls. They play with them in many different ways: throwing, catching, kicking, and rolling them. Children make balls, marbles, and other rolling objects change speed and direction. They see how natural forces such as gravity and friction affect the movement of balls. Children play traditional games with balls and often invent their own games.

Our preschoolers are beginning to study balls. The study of balls will offer them opportunities to investigate objects from many different perspectives. They will explore important concepts of physical science and social studies as they observe, gather data, explore their community, and meet interesting people. A study of balls also offers a meaningful way for children to use skills in mathematics, literacy, the arts, and technology.

We will start by asking,"What do we know about balls? What do we want to find out? Why do balls bounce? Do all balls roll? What makes balls move? Who uses balls? What are balls made of?" As we study balls, we will use literacy, math, the arts, science, and technology to explore the topic in depth. We will learn important social studies and scientific concepts through firsthand investigations. Please visit our classrooms during the study to see how we are investigating balls.

How is a topic selected for investigation?
Topics are selected based on the interest of the child, family, and/or teacher. The topic will be meaningful, unique, and will stretch children’s thinking.

Who We Are

Kinder Explorers Children Learning Center provides early childhood education and care by collaborating with parents to develop the skills children need to prepare them for academic excellence and success in life.

Our children are young readers, musicians, artists, scientists, and explorers who are encouraged to reach their full potential. We educate children by stimulating their imaginations, instilling confidence, and strengthening self-esteem by teaching in a warm and nurturing environment.

We know that you want more than just daycare; you want a child care and early education center. To that end, we provided a clean, safe, and loving environment that is dedicated to the health and well-being of your child. We will exceed your expectations! Just ask our partners (the parents of our current students) — they are our best references.

What We Do

We listened to parents all over the country talk about their families’ preschool desires and heard a chorus. So we built an early childhood learning center from the ground up that fulfills those desires. We designed our center to meet and surpass the standards of excellence set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC): our center is held to the highest quality, safety, cleanliness, and maintenance standards.

Our curriculum introduces concepts of language, science, math, culture, environment, art, and health. We teach children in small groups engaged in activities that have been thoughtfully prepared by knowledgeable child development professionals who understand the balance between nurturing developing minds and caring for tender spirits.
