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.  

Play is how we practice new skills, take risks, investigate​ new ideas and add new information with old knowledge.  Playing in a group allows opportunities for social and emotional development that is necessary for the transition to a more formal educational experience.

Learning Centers
Art- Games - Science - Math - Imaginative Play
We will 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 will use the illustrations and concepts presented by each author to inspire our scientific and artist experiences.

Book Talks
Children will come together to talk about familiar and new stories.  We'll read aloud and give plenty of opportunity to discuss the authors and illustrators as well as literary elements in general - nurturing a love of books!
