In the classrooms we have reading centers, home living centers, block centers, science, language arts, math and expressive art centers.
Centers give children a chance to interact together and develop friendships. They are developing from parallel play to interactive play. Centers foster imagination, motor skills, and cooperation skills. As you can see, a lot of life living skills happen in center play.
Outside, we climb, jump, hang, dig, slide, ride bikes, run, and basically have fun.
Outside, the children develop large motor skills and coordination. Physical development is just as important as intellectual development.
During circle time the children read stories, sing songs, learn new words, count, learn colors, letters, animals, and lots more.
The children learn to sit together and listen to each other. This is where we start our day and lengthen our attention spans. Circle time is the first experience of regular elementary school days.
