Our preschoolers are in an environment that encourages them to choose the type of play that interests them. By doing this, each child is discovering his/her own learning style. As each child discovers and participates in each area of purposeful play, teachers observe and document each child and the classroom dynamic. The teachers are then able to determine individual and group lessons according to each child’s stage of development and interest. Because the children are involved in purposeful play that they enjoy, they aren’t aware that they are developing skills in communication, reading (connecting letters and sounds) and math.
Our classroom environment is also designed to inspire each child to determine his role in a nurturing environment. Children continue to learn about social cooperation through group projects, especially how to resolve conflict, solve problems, and exhibit basic manners.
