In a comfortable setting your child will be one in a small group of children, receiving individualized care and spending quality time with caring adults on a consistent basis.
Our spacious classroom is arranged to make it a safe place for children to play, make friends, explore and to learn. Children's toys and materials are placed on low shelves which makes it easy for them to select the items that they enjoy. It also helps them learn how to make choices and be independent.
There is a daily schedule that we follow which provides a routine to the children. The schedule allows for active and quiet times, large group and small group, outdoor time, child-directed and teacher-directed activities. The children are able to predict what will happen next and this helps them feel secure and prepared, and it facilitates the children’s understanding of the learning environment expectations.
The classroom is divided into Centers- Block, Dramatic Play, Sensory, Construction, Writing, Math and Science, Computer, and a Reading area. To keep learning interesting and fun throughout the school year, we rotate toys and ‘shops’ i.e. ice cream shop, pizza parlor, shoe shop, flower shop which allows for a lot of dramatic play.
We have a safe, secure playground in our backyard that is fenced. It features a climber which sits on a protective rubber surface. We enjoy many activities in our backyard playground including gardening, playing with sand and water and in the sprinklers.
