What We Offer | Dallas daycare services

Curriculum and Activities

Our daycare center primarily follows the HighReach Learning early childhood curriculum while incorporating some other curricula and professional ideas into our daily activities to meet the needs of children at different ages and learning levels.

Spanish lessons are included in our daily curriculum.

Daily Report

At the end of each day, parents are provided with a written report of each child's activities, including what was eaten, if/when the child slept, number of wet and dirty diapers or potty visits, what kind of day the child had in general, what outdoor and/or indoor activities the child participated in, and general comments or questions for the parent from the child's teacher.

We understand that parents rely on good communication for a clear understanding of their child's day while in our care. We welcome conversations between parents and teachers any time, but we also value each parent's time and understand that busy schedules don't always permit inquiries on a daily basis. Our daily reports provide basic information that can be communicated quickly and easily without requiring the parent to ask.

CLASS SIZE

The child-to-teacher ratio varies according to age group at all daycare facilities. Munger Square Child Care's ratio tends to be smaller due to classroom sizes, providing more individualized attention and a more controlled, comfortable, family-friendly environment than what is typically found at larger daycare centers.

MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE RATIOS:

0-11 months                4:1     
12-17 months              5:1     
18-23 months              9:1     
2 years                      11:1 
3 years                      15:1 


Due to the smaller-than-average class sizes, spaces are more limited at Munger Square Child Care than at larger daycare centers. We maintain a waiting list for each class, accommodating families to the best of our abilities whenever there is an opening in a classroom.

Parent Advisory Board
All mothers and fathers are welcome to participate in our daycare center’s Parent Advisory Board. For more information, please see our PARENTS page.

   

Programs by Age Group

Infants 8 weeks - 12 months

At this age infants require a clean, safe and nurturing environment. They need attention, are eager to communicate, and are aware of the world around them. It is important to meet their needs by:

  • Responding when they cry
  • Providing continuous physical interaction
  • Talking, reading, and singing
  • Using puppet shows as teaching tools
  • Playing appropriate music for their age
  • Promoting tummy time
  • Providing floor time for development of gross motor skills
  • Introducing toys suitable for fine motor skills and sensory stimulation
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Preparing appropriate sleeping areas designed for babies

Toddlers 1-2 years

At this stage toddlers are mostly about exploring the environment around them and testing their own physical abilities and limitations. Curious toddlers need a safe environment with plenty of space to explore and make discoveries. We provide the right furniture, toys, and most importantly supervision to make sure this experience is safe and fun. Daily activities include:

  • Finger play and singing
  • Circle time
  • Large and small muscle activities (indoor and outdoor )

  • Language development
  • Cognitive development
  • Directed activities and play

Preschoolers 3-4 years

At this age children have achieved important verbal and nonverbal communication milestones. They are able to communicate well and engage with the world around them. They understand their own unique identity and value their individuality. We provide the support and tools these young children need to learn and grow while feeling good about being who they are and having fun being themselves. We will aid in teaching:

  • Self-discipline
  • The meaning of sharing
  • Expressing their feelings openly
  • Self-confidence
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-worth
  • How to dress themselves
  • Potty training (if needed)

Preschoolers 4-5 years

At this age confidence and self-esteem plays a major role in preparing for the transition to kindergarten. By now they have reached significant social and emotional development. The emphasis at this stage is on cognitive and intellectual areas of development. We will aid in teaching:

  • Counting skills
