Child Care Programs for Ages – 6 weeks to 3 years old
Healthy Start to Life
We believe that teaching children healthy eating habits is the foundation to a healthy start. Our campus prioritizes healthy snacks. Some of our past snacks have included include fresh berries, pineapple, steamed carrots, whole wheat toast with jam, & other traditional snack items with a healthier twist.
One of the hardest things to do as a parent is to drop your child off at daycare & wonder all day how their day is going. Truks-N-Trykes utilizes Brightwheel to keep you up to date with your children. Brightwheel will tell you how often your child’s diaper is changed, what they had for lunch, how much of their bottle they drank, what activities they did, & allows you to message their teachers directly.
At Truks-N-Trykes we put a heavy emphasis on outdoor time for all our ages, yes, even infants. Taking the kids outside has benefits including an increase in immunity, better sleep habits, & an increase in ability to process sensory.
Large Motor Play Area
Our weather isn’t always great in South Dakota. On the days that we aren’t able to head out into the fresh air, our kiddos will be able to head to our town park to play. The park is an interior play area covered in a artificial turf with plenty of large motor toys for the kids to play on.
Lunch time at Truks-N-Trykes won’t look like a line of babies with airplane spoons approaching their mouths but rather a spread of age-appropriate foods cut into strips for the babies to feed themselves. Baby-led weaning supports the development of eye-hand coordination, chewing skills, & healthy eating habits.
Learning Beyond Paper
At Truks-N-Trykes we utilize Learning Beyond Paper Curriculum. Learning Beyond was created by early learning educators, owners, directors, & teachers with over 300 years of combined experience to provide the curriculum solutions to teach in the modern age.
Learning Beyond’s Lesson Plans & Daily Activities are carefully crafted to meet the development needs of each & every child. Learning activities are presented in a meaningful way, & every activity is linked to early childhood standards for each age group.
At Truks-N-Trykes Prep we know parents begin to wonder how their kids are advancing when they start to look at enrolling them in Kindergarten. AT TNTP we take the challenge of creating confident learners head-on. By using the Learning Beyond Paper curriculum we ensure that our students are not only achieving the academic foundation to be successful, but also the social & emotional skills to thrive in their next chapter.
