ITODDLER (Age 2 - 3)
Our Toddler are offered a fully balanced day with tons of imaginative activates and play. The children are in a caring atmosphere, with a reassuring routine, and stimulating activities. They learn through a balance of play, teacher-facilitated activities, and repetition. It is the optimum environment for learning at this level of development. We also help children to understand their emotions and develop their relationships with other children through empathy and concern. Teachers in the Toddler class help children become more independent.
Many self help skills are introduced to the children through daily routines and cooperative play. The children are taught to be more vocal resulting in language development. An environment of bright colors and appropriate toys provides optimum stimulation for the toddler’s growth. As the child matures, the learning materials grow more complex. Music is an important element of the curriculum for every toddler, youngest to oldest. Art will be incorporated in all content areas.
IPRESCHOOL (Age 3 - 5)
Our preschoolers will begin to experience the joy of self-expression in the areas of music, arts & crafts, movement, story hour, and games in our supervised play areas. Dramatic play, outside play, music & movement, blocks and science are a big part of their day. Mrs. Elba will support preschoolers’ learning with exciting activities to best meet their cognitive, physical and social-emotional development.
Group play is a big role in an effort to bring community into the classroom. Preschoolers are also allowed blocks of time to explore their environment and to delve into projects that interest them and which might take days, or even weeks to complete. These children are on the move and becoming more independent. We need to develop their manipulative and coordination skills with puzzles and games, their creative skills with drawing, painting, sticking, cutting and free expression, their language skills with books, poetry, songs and individual and group discussion. Climbing frames, soft play, music and dance support their body control, while jumping, kicking a ball or balancing on one leg offer fun and physical challenges. Play is focused on helping children develop self-care skills, as well as encouraging independence.
