All parents know that their little kids lead very rich fantasy lives.
That’s why it takes a little while sometimes to figure out who really knocked over the lamp and where the big pink-and-purple bunny with the polka dots lives in the walls.
The importance of fostering and training holistic imagination from kids’ earliest learning cannot be overstated.
Imagination helps little minds learn what questions to ask and helps them build their own for their rapidly expanding little knowledgebases.
The adults they grow into use imagination to grow better and more food, cure cancers, invent the gadget that makes a million bucks and so on.
Welcome to the Island
Fleming Island’s newest pre-school, Imagination Island, focuses on tying rich, interactive learning tasks to the cognitive stages of early childhood, so that your tiny kids can learn at their own pace.
The fee-based instruction is designed to accommodate of different learning styles that engage all of the senses is essential in early education because little lefties learn in different ways and at different rates than blue-eyed blondes and freckled redheads.
Just as they walk and potty train at their own pact, kids acquire language at very different rates and at sometimes dizzying rates.
Their pre-school education must be flexible enough to accommodate the distinct individuals that little kids already are when they darken the pre-school’s doorway on the first day.
A familiar model of learning
Like o2bKids!, a chain of holistic learning centers with a big local presence, Imagination Island uses whole language acquisition – song, poetry, story hour – and education in motion – structured play, board games, dance – to blend lessons with old-fashioned fun to keep learners engaged and interested.
Imagination Island bills itself as “An Elite School of Early Education” focusing on “all facets of child development with advanced curriculum and cutting-edge technology.”
The center is owned and operated by Richard and Lisa Greene, who both have over 20 years experience in early childhood education, experience with Head Start programs and university degrees education leadership and child psychology.
Curriculum & Facilities
The Greenes have developed a philosophy of building character development as well as intellectual and physical agility.
In addition to their more academic lessons, tiny children learn more about how their tiny persons can help out around the house, how they can do kind things for others and how they can participate in bigger events that help other little persons like Operation Christmas Child, trike-a-thons that benefit children’s causes, etc.
To that end, Imagination Island’s classrooms are designed for little ones to learn about cooking by cooking, learn about about art by making useful things like painted flowerpots and bird feeders, learn about nature, learn about sport, etc.
