Early childhood education centers have used the month of March to spruce up their programs for the spring. Re-invention is a necessary marketing skill that all directors must have in order to attract parents who are looking for quality childcare. The month of March is the beginning of many parents’ search for quality childcare for the fall. All centers geared up during the month of March for fall registration. Many centers held open house and scheduled tours for parents who will be enrolling young children for the coming fall. Parents like to see new programs in place that demonstrate that a center in which they are interested is innovative in early childhood education.
Forty Carrots Family Center in Sarasota is just one example of how centers in the area used the month of March to implement new programs. Programs that were implemented in March were divided by ages. The infant program, Welcome to our World and Child’s Space, was offered to teach parents with newborns and older infants how to play with their young child. Studio 40 was geared toward children from ages 1-5 years of age. Creativity for young children was in the spotlight. Art, music, and movement were activities for children and their parents to participate in together. Grandparents were also welcome. A Math in Motion program was of special interest. Musical instruments were used to develop early math skills.
These programs that were begun in March will continue for the months of April and May. Interested parents may call 941-365-7716 for registration information. Forty Carrots Family Center is located at 1500 Tuttle Avenue in Sarasota. The Spring Program can also be downloaded by logging onto the website at www.fortycarrots.org.
