Curriculum

FirefliesTM is a professionally designed monthly preschool curriculum created by FunShine ExpressTM for children ages 2-5 years. Each kit includes creative art materials for each child, alphabet and language activities, music and movement, hands-on math and science, social activities and games. We believe children learn best through interact­ing with their environment and we strive to present activities with that in mind.

 

Each month, your child will participate in integrated activities related to three educational themes. He or she will also be introduced to three alphabet letters, one color, two to three numbers, and one shape. Watch for related activities to begin arriving home!

 

You will receive a copy of “The Parent Express” Newsletter each month, along with Weekly Family Notes. These resources include a description of each theme’s goals, several of the songs and rhymes your child is learning, a Book List, and more. You may wish to gather some of the suggested book titles to share with your child at home.

 

FirefliesTM Program Goals:

  The curriculum will be based on current research and sound educational theories of early childhood learning and development.

  We will provide a wide range of hands-on, interactive materials allowing children to experiment and explore their surroundings.

  The activity and project suggestions provided in our kits will stimulate creativity and build a positive self-image in each child.

  The program will encourage involvement of family members in each child’s learning.
