Children by nature are kinesthetic learners; this program gives them hands-on opportunities to learn and explore in an environment that stimulates the mind and body. The children in this class will be developing empathy through teamwork, confidence, and self-esteem as they work together solving problems and exploring their environment.
What to Expect
We value taking the students’ lead and use their interests as ‘teachable moments;’ having choice keeps students engaged and focused.
We will maintain a flexible schedule, with a predictable flow of daily activities to ensure a trusting learning environment is offered.
Arrival: Your child will be greeted by a teacher and guided to an area where small activities are available for exploration.
Large Group Activity: Movement, stories, songs, team games, collaborative art projects
Discovery Time: Exploring and using the senses to connect with the physical world around us. Literacy, math, and science will be incorporated through classifying, sorting, counting, problem-solving, investigating, measuring, answering open-ended questions, observing, and hypothesizing.
