Summer & Fall Child Care Programs
Extended Love Child Development Center offers two sessions to Kenosha area families
We begin to explore the world outside. Our infant teachers utilize our playpens, strollers, wagons and baby swings to bring the outdoor experience to the little ones.
Our youngest toddlers begin to play on the Little Tyke play equipment, go for walks, ride in the strollers and enjoy the season. We love to get messy and paint and play with sensory media such as sand, water, edible play dough, and more!
Lots of outside play keeps 2-year-olds happy! Sprinkler time, playground time, neighborhood walks, sand and sensory fun, trucks, balls, and swings are where the learning takes root. We paint, sing, dance, and play. Structure is light but routine is still kept. We offer a variety of fun summer themes to keep the children developing while still finding time to enjoy our warm Wisconsin weather!
The oldest preschoolers get the bigger playground and grassy areas to play! We spend as much time as possible enjoying fresh air opportunities and learning about nature, summer, culture, and environment around the center, with periods of indoor play and activities.
The “big kids” really get to spread their wings and explore through weekly field trips.
- Tuesdays and Thursdays are field trip days off the premises. A preplanned list of trips is billed out for the entire summer. Some of their favorite places include water parks, zoos, lakes, parks, and bowling.
- Weekly sports activity including soccer, volleyball, baseball, hockey, and much more.
- Other days are filled with fun activities around the center and the grounds. We have lots of opportunities for outside exploration, group games and fun. Inside is filled with options of crafts, science, technology, reading, and small and large group play. We keep them very busy because a busy big kid is a happy big kid.
- Summer ends with a “lock-in.” The children and all their team teachers (including Ms. Ann and Ms. Linda) stay late into the night and have a “survivor”-themed night of games, prizes, pizza, movies, ice cream and fun. We shoot a movie on the gym wall like a “drive-in” and we stay up all night!
