OUR TEACHERS

 

Structured planning is what sets Dino Drop-In apart from other drop-in centers. You won’t find screens and electronic toys entertaining children here, our preschool programs have been developed to inspire intrinsic motivation to learn and grow. Activities throughout the day have been carefully selected and timed to give the maximum learning opportunity to each child while respecting the shorter attention spans of the youngest in our community. A mixed age group class fosters a community feel and growth mindset in the younger children and empathy in the older children as they learn to navigate activities in an inclusive manner.

There are multiple opportunities in a day for circle time and group activities to inspire and share. Free play and gross motor skill development give plenty of time to burn off energy, build strength, independence, and resilience. Project time allows your child to develop their interests and explore creatively. At Dino Drop-in we have monthly themes to help guide children to learn about the world around them and encourage a lifelong love of learning. Choose Dino Drop-in for services that deliver more than just a helping hand.

All Dino Drop-In teachers are background checked, trained in CPR/1st Aide, and required to do continuing education each year.
