NOW REGISTERING for SEPTEMBER 2020!
Are you considering an early childhood program that extends social experiences and encourages development?
Did you know that we offer a drop-off program for children 3 -6 years old?
It begins in September!
A unique nursery/preschool experience that offers a gentle transition from home to school.
It is provided in a home-like setting.
It is educator facilitated and child initiated.
We Play and Wonder Together!
Children play. Adults play. It is how we learn! Can you remember getting a new phone, toy or tool, or being introduced to a new food to cook with? Did you read the instructions from front to back or did you "play with it" - manipulate, try different buttons, mix different combinations of foods, and explore it, learning as you went along. Can you imagine trying to teach a baby to walk or talk by only using one prescribed method? Babies try, they make adjustments, we encourage and provide healthy nurturing environments, we babble back at them, and eventually they grasp the tasks and knowledge.
Play is how we practice new skills, take risks, investigate new ideas and add new information to old knowledge. It is natural and memorable. Playing in a mixed - age group allows opportunities for social and emotional development that is necessary for a transition to a more formal educational experience.
Table Time, Learning Centers, and Circle Time
Art - Science - Math - Imaginative Play - Games
We carefully arrange interesting objects, props, representational materials and activities each time in order to actively engage children in learning. This allows children with distinctive styles and strengths to participate in different ways. We use illustrations and concepts presented in books to inspire our scientific and artistic experiences. We spend time listening and talking, showing appreciation and honoring each child.
