Merry Moose Childcare and Preschool provides learning experiences for children of all ages that are developmentally appropriate and geared to the MN Early Childhood Indicators of Progress. We strike a balance between teacher lead learning activities and child lead activities. Children will be encouraged to participate in activities that stimulate gross motor (large muscle) and fine motor (small muscle) development. We will provide opportunities for children to explore language, music, art, pretend play, imaginative play and manipulatives. Children will be going outside, weather permitting, on a daily basis for free play and some structured activities. Children learn at different rates and in different ways. At Merry Moose Childcare and Preschool, we encourage the process versus praise the result. Our Professional Childcare Team takes the time to know and understand your child so that we can create unique activities for them.
