OUR LEARNING PROCESS
Throughout the day, children are engaged in the following activities:
The children gather together at circle time as we greet all our classmates. Our goal is to become a school family as we "check in" with one another. The children are encouraged to share about their day or bring a share time item. Through sharing the children acquire expanded language skills and the class, as a whole, gains valuable listening skills as well.
Play is a vehicle of growth for the young child. During play explorations, children learn to interact with each other and play cooperatively. Playtime affords a child the opportunity to share, think and to problem solve. Play is hard work for young children! A variety of materials in the classroom encourages children to use their wonderful imaginations and build upon their creative, dramatic play while developing their gross and fine motor skills.
The children will have an opportunity to explore their creativity using a variety of art media. Paints, markers, crayons, colored pencils, tape, glue, scissors, and felt are a few of the myriad of materials the children will experiment with in the classroom. It is important to remember that it is the process, not the finished product that matters! We want your children to feel proud of their creations!
