As a premier Nursery Preschool in Riverdale NY, Renanim Preschool and Summer Camp strives to deliver comprehensive, child-centered, and holistic services that can cater to all of your child’s needs – physically, emotionally, intellectually, mentally, and socially. This is why aside from our preschool and academic programs, we are also proud to deliver our Special Programs that provide your child with the opportunity to grow and learn through art, music, and movement.
Here are some of the developmental benefits of our Special Programs:
Motor Skills Development.
Several gestures involved in making art (e.g. coloring, holding a paintbrush) are essential for the development of your child’s motor skills. As they create art projects, they become more practiced in holding their art materials and controlling them so that they can achieve their desired outputs.
Activities such as threading beads on a string, clay sculpting, and drawing are all useful in the development of visual-spatial skills. Visual-spatial processing skills can also help your children follow dance moves, solve some math problems, and they can use these skills to make sense of numbers and letters.
Through art, your children will have the opportunity to learn the words for shapes, actions, and colors. For example, if they want to use a specific shade of crayon, children will have to learn the name of its color. Moreover, singing simple nursery rhymes such as The Alphabet Song, Humpty Dumpty, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and etc. can definitely help improve their language skills.
The simple act of choosing a color or choosing their favorite nursery rhyme can teach your child about the value of decision making. It can also strengthen their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
Through our art activities, we encourage your child to think, experiment, and try new ideas – we allow their creativity to blossom and develop. Additionally, we believe that the more we encourage them to express themselves, the more they develop their sense of innovation – something they can benefit from in their adult lives.
These are just five of the many benefits of our Special Programs. Are you interested? Our Upper East Side Daycare in New York is open to male and female students between the ages of 2 – 5 years old, so make sure to give us a call now! You can reach us at 212-750-2266.
