ABOUT US

Young children have an inherent sense of what is interesting in their environment. Experiential learning begins from early childhood years and contributes throughout their lifelong journey. Expressive Minds Early Childhood Center intends to nurture their nascent inquisitive ability and teach them how to apply it to the world around them. Expressive Minds' mission is to provide an individualized preschool curriculum that emphasizes on social and environmental awareness as a nurturing aid for learners. EMECC emphasizes the development of the whole child through active learning situations. We strive for a balanced, nurturing, caring, developmental approach to education for children 1 to 5 years old.

 

Our program provides freedom for children to have experiential learning through spontaneous play and interaction, where they make discoveries, explore, solve problems and develop critical thinking skills essential for both cognitive and social skills. A progressive approach to learning to match every child’s varying needs and goals. Programs and teaching styles are tailored as appropriate for each child, just as each child is unique. EMECC has developed ways to nurture each child’s learning ability while striking a balance between the progressive and traditional approach. This builds a foundation for children entering the big schools in the country.

TYPICAL DAY

DENS1079.JPG

Structured Play Time / Open Exploration

Self-direction, choice, imagination, problem solving

We believe that children learn through play. During this time, children choose from a variety of activities, including dramatic play, science and nature, puzzles, play dough, blocks, books, creative art, and other manipulative materials.  It is also during this time that the teacher-in-charge sits down with the child to accomplish one-on-one table top activities. Individual work time caters to the specific needs of the child in terms of addressing specific skill areas such as Language, Math, Writing and other fine motor skills.

Circle Time

Unity, movement, memory, expression

During Circle Time, children gather together to greet each other, check on the attendance and share songs, rhymes, poems. During this time, children are engaged in language opportunities such as talking about the calendar, weather, and / or sharing thoughts and ideas with classmates. It helps in developing attention span, good listening skills and oral communication.Different experiences during this fun time include active and quiet songs, finger-plays and instruments.

As children enjoy snacks that were sent from home, they practice table manners, how eat independently, use the dining utensils appropriately while developing social skills as they communicate with their peers.

We believed that sending him to school at a very young age would help him increase his exposure to children his age. But in order to achieve that, we need to get him to school where the structure is child-centered and play-based. He’s a very playful boy so we think that his way of expressing his creativity and love for learning is through play. We’re very thankful that Expressive Minds offers both. The low student to teacher ratio also ensured that our son’s emotional and academic needs, in coordination with us, his parents, were properly addressed and closely monitored. So far, his two years in this school transformed Elgin from being a reserved, quiet and not sociable child to a self-confident, sensible and interactive person. It took a while for him to adjust but the journey was well worth it. We are happy with the overall experience, Thanks a lot and more power!

I still remember the very 1st day of classes for my little girl. I was terrified on what might happen. I kept on thinking if she was going to cry or would not let go but it went really well. The teacher talked to each and every one of them, saying hi's and hello's and asking about their morning. My little girl went inside, said 'see you later' to us, and had a great day.

3 years later and my little girl wouldn't stop talking about Expressive Minds, teachers, staff, classmates, and friends. She had so much fun and learned a lot in her 2nd home. She learned not just her A to Z, 1-100, reading and writing, but also how to be a good kid and a friend. Seeing our little girl happy and to develop into such a good student, we knew we made the best decision. We will forever treasure our 3 years with Expressive Minds. Thank you to all teachers and staff.

One may say it was love at first sight when she first stepped inside Expressive Minds. 

Before Expressive Minds, we had a hard time having conversations with her. It was alarming on our part since her older brother, who has down syndrome, has an expected speech delay and on top of that, we could see our friend’s kids the same age as Xandrene knew how to read, write and converse really well already. Now, after 2 years in EM, she is unstoppable! She learned all the basics in reading, writing and a whole lot more. Not only did she learn the basics, but she was able to learn what we have hoped and prayed for, that is, to develop her love for knowledge, exude confidence not just in facing new challenges and even something as simple as looking forward in going to school everyday.
