Introductory Paragraph: Hello and welcome. My name is Quialetta Harris. I’m from Tulsa, Oklahoma. First off let me thank you for coming out today to hear my presentation on Youth and Family Discoveries Recreation Center. And at the end of this presentation I would like to invite you to share any of your questions, thoughts, or concerns you may have on this new proposal.

  1. ROOM #1 – Infant Room

Paragraph 1. Bright Beginnings Program (Early Childhood Development)

  • Research has shown, “that early learning programs, such as child development centers, help children’s earliest teachers-their parents-better prepare the children for school success” (Moodie, Shannon; Ramos, Manica. (2014)).
  • The Youth and Family Discoveries Recreation Center’s Early Learning Programs will help boosts the development of infants by offering early learning readiness of all aspects and elements of an infant’s development.
  • The Bright Beginnings program addresses the comprehension development of infants by supporting their brain development.

Paragraph 2. Creative Genesis Class

  • Research has shown, “that learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it stimulates active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world around them” (Moodie, Shannon; Ramos Manica. (2014)).
  • This activity encourages infants to explore the world around them. Such as touch, taste, hearing, smell, and sight. And using different objects will help infants learn about size, shapes, colors, and gross motor skills.
  • This activity addresses exploring objects through the five senses.

Paragraph 3. In this room, I would like to draw your attention to the Foam Tabletop Unit Blocks.

  • Research suggests that, “different objects that have different shapes, colors, and sizes helps develop an infant’s fine motor skills” (The Cleveland Children’s Museum of Cleveland).

  1. ROOM #2 – Toddler Room

Paragraph 1. Doodle Bugs Visual Arts Program

  • Research has shown, “toddlers learn fine motor skills and develop in other domains of development. For example, using crayons, markers, and paintbrushes” (Creative Art Helps Children Develop Across Many Domains, (2013, July 11).
  • This program enhances toddler’s ability to experiment with different painting techniques, textures, and experience the fun of creating the changing seasons and holiday arts and crafts.
  • This program addresses, “the all the domains of a toddler’s development. For example, social, cognitive, emotional, and physical. And also helps toddler’s tap into their active imaginations. And learn experimenting with color and texture” (Creative Art Helps Children Develop Across Many Domains, (2013, July 11).

Paragraph 2. Friendship Discovery Class

  • “Social Development suggests children learn to work together and interact with others. And emotional development children are able to represent experiences that they cannot verbalize” (Creative Art Helps Children Develop across Many Domains, (2013, July 11).
  • This activity will encourage toddlers to adapt emotionally and socially to a classroom. It also teaches your toddler sharing, listening and following directions. And it will help with those transitions between activities. For example, going from art to story time to free play.
  • This activity addresses the importance of social and emotional learning, and consistent routines. Addresses several domains of development in toddlers.

Paragraph 3. In this room, I would like to draw your attention to the set of 12 Bingo Bottle

                     Refillable Markers with Caps and Tips.

  • “Toddlers learn to express themselves creatively through their art” (Creative Art Helps Children Develop across Many Domains, (2013, July 11). I believe that this allows children learn about the color palette, discover the artists within them, and tap into their imaginations.

  1. ROOM #3 – Early Childhood Room

Paragraph 1. Let’s Play Music! Program

  •  “Music in early childhood serves as an expressive, emotional, intellectual, social, and creative needs of all children. Music curriculum for young children gives them the opportunity to explore sound through singing, moving, listening, and playing instruments” (National Association for Music Education).
  • This program will expose your child to a rich music instruction. For example, singing, rhythms, movement, and props.
  • This program addresses “the music literature included in the curriculum should be high quality and lasting value, including traditional children’s songs, folk songs, classical music, and music from a variety of cultures, styles, and time periods” (National Association for Music Education).
