Rogers, MN Preschool: Enrichment Programs

Lil’ Movers is our program that enhances your child’s large motor development. We will use aspects and activities promoted by CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), as well as developmentally appropriate Large Motor skills, sportsmanship, and taking turns. Combining these programs promotes physical activity and coordinated play for young children. Our program encourages and motivates children to walk, run, jump, dance, and move their whole body while playing and having fun!

Lil’ Farmers is our nutrition program that focuses on health, nutrition, and community involvement. We incorporate aspects of the “Farm to Childcare” initiative by partnering with local farmers for fresh and local products. We feature a new fruit or vegetable each month from a list of the farmer’s seasonal crops. Our students will explore the food through taste, texture, and smell, while learning about where the food was grown in Rogers, MN. Lil’ Farmers program will help children build lifelong healthy eating habits, so they can become real life farmers too!

Kindermusik is a music and movement program that is cultivated for each stage of a child’s development. Lil’ Explorers offers three Kindermusik levels that are geared to accommodate toddler and preschool classroom developmental needs. Kindermusik provides activities that stimulate children’s minds, bodies, and sense of play while incorporating early literacy and language into music. The music program integrates songs, instruments, stories, activities, and music from all around the world to nurture kids’ budding creativity!

Beginning in preschool, children are introduced to basic words in the Spanish language. Each month the Spanish program is based around a theme (i.e. numbers, colors, greetings, body parts, etc.). New words are introduced using fun picture cards, games, songs, and books. We highly encourage everyone to attempt to pronounce the Spanish words although many children (especially under 3 years old) may not be able to pronounce the words easily or at all. However, exposure to a foreign language can have many cognitive and academic benefits.

It was challenging to find care that meets our standards, as any parent has for their child and Lil’ Explorers in Rogers checks all of the boxes! The communication from the Directors (Emily and Allison - love them!), and from the teachers, is thorough and consistent, the teachers are responsible, caring and creative, and the children are always having a blast! The day is structured thoughtfully, the facility is clean, modern, organized and safe! From the moment you walk in the door the staff are welcoming, helpful, smiley and upbeat. We couldn’t be more grateful for the love and support our son receives daily and are extremely fortunate for the progression our child has made in such a short period of time. The curriculum, phone application for updates/pictures, indoor/outdoor activities, spirit week(s), camps, healthy snacks/lunches etc. I could go on and on and on 😊 Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such exceptional care of our son 💙

We had a great experience in the infant room with our daughter. Great teachers and I loved getting the photos of her throughout the day! You can tell the teachers love their kiddos! She just moved up to the toddler room and she loves it! Our son loves going to school. He asks every day are we going to school tomorrow?! He loves his friends and teachers!

I highly recommend this center! It is the best priced center out there and their level of curriculum is above what they charge for. You really can't go wrong! Great staff and teachers. They are always available when you have questions. My daughter loves it there and has learned so much! She'll be going into Pre-K this fall and I don't have any concerns that she'll be well equipped for Kindergarten.
