Technology is a critical part of your child’s early education. While you may be working to limit purely recreational screen time, there’s still a place for the mindful use of computers, particularly in the classroom. Our curriculum at Crème de la Crème is designed to provide all the key benefits of technology for children.
Digital literacy is the ability to comfortably and effectively communicate, work, and learn using digital technologies such as the internet, computers, and mobile devices. It’s increasingly important for children to be digitally literate so they can effectively navigate the modern world. Most jobs, both now and in the future, will require employees to have some form of digital literacy. The proper use of technology in the classroom will equip children to effectively use these same technologies throughout their continuing education and future careers.
Though children today are considered digital natives, a surprising number aren’t digitally literate. One international assessment of eighth-grade students found that just 2% scored at the highest level of digital literacy, and only 19% could independently use computers to gather and manage information. Through our Digital Tech Lab and organized computer education, our staff at Crème de la Crème is well equipped to ensure our students achieve high levels of digital literacy at an early age.
Today’s technology offers unparalleled opportunities for children to explore beyond their physical horizons. They can use the internet and other digital tools to virtually tour far-away countries and distant museums. Children can also watch live webcams of exotic creatures in zoos worldwide. In a few clicks, it’s possible to travel thousands of miles and experience things that would otherwise be entirely inaccessible from one’s physical location. Technology can empower children to explore far more than we would’ve dreamed possible a few decades ago.
The internet puts a wealth of information at your fingertips. With access to the right technology, children can check out digital books, watch documentaries, access research papers, and more. Interactive modules and assessments can make entire classes available online. In our classrooms, we also provide access to educational games and digital tools that help support learning in a variety of areas.
Tech tools are critical to teaching children about programming and robotics. At Crème de la Crème, we offer a kid-friendly coding curriculum that teaches young children how to manipulate the building blocks of computer programs and games. Coding helps children build their math, communication, and creative thinking skills. They can practice hands-on coding activities alongside their peers in an interactive environment that turns theoretical knowledge into real-world skills.
At Crème de la Crème, we have a dedicated Digital Tech Lab equipped with everything your child needs to hone their digital literacy skills. Our educational programs promote math, reading, and writing skills in an immersive and highly engaging manner.
In the Digital Tech Lab, your child will find computers, tablets, smartboards, and other types of digital technology. This helps them learn how to manipulate a variety of electronics, such as a computer mouse, stylus, or touch screen. Children absorb information quickly at a young age, and working in the Digital Tech Lab ensures that your child will be comfortable with a wide range of devices now and throughout their life.
Our technology tools and programs foster hands-on experiences that engage children’s creativity. Through coding and robotics, they’ll discover their ability to both use technology and create new technologies of their own.
At Crème de la Crème, we believe in whole-child development. Technology can help facilitate this in several ways. Computer apps and programs offer personalized learning paths that are easily customized for each child. In our Digital Tech Lab, children can learn at their own pace and use a variety of games and tools to master essential skills. This allows the child to pursue information in the way that suits them best.
Technology can also foster teamwork and collaboration. Children can work on social and interpersonal skills when approaching tech lab projects as a group. This helps incorporate multiple skill sets at once while preparing kids for a future where they’ll likely need to work collaboratively with others using computers, tablets, and other types of technology.
The Digital Tech Lab is just one part of our curriculum rotation, so it’s designed to complement the other activities your child will engage in throughout the day. Outside of the tech lab, kids will engage in a variety of other programs, including the STEAM Lab, Art Studio, Coconut Theater, Creative Movement Studio, Music Studio, and more.
