Children deserve to be in a stimulating yet comfortable environment. We believe that a combination of child directed and teacher directed activities best support children’s development. Children learn through play and exploration. Our program therefore includes free choice as an important part of our daily routine. During large and small group activities teachers implement developmentally appropriate practices to support each child’s social/emotional, cognitive, and physical development. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development of young children.
We believe that children learn through active exploration of their environment: the richer the environment, the more concrete opportunities there are for children to learn by interacting with people and materials. Our role is to create an environment that invites children to observe, be active, make choices, and experiment. Our intent is to enable children to interact in a positive manner with others, accepting diversity and differences, thereby building self-esteem.
While children play, they put their ideas into action. They learn to communicate effectively. They discover how to get along with other children. They make things happen and enjoy a sense of mastery. Play allows children to experiment and try things out. It fosters the ability to focus attention and to concentrate for long periods of time. Play provides opportunities for children to express their feelings. It fosters imagination and encourages them to generate creative ideas. Learning experiences are developmentally appropriate and are matched with the age of the child, their individual interests, their abilities, and their temperament. Workbooks, coloring books, and pre-cut art materials are ready-made adult models for children that provide little or no opportunity for individuality and creativity. Our preschool classrooms display a rich array of open-ended materials and authentic experiences that enable the child’s involvement in the learning process.
Learning experiences are a balance of child-directed and teacher-directed activities. Children are presented with many opportunities for selecting materials, initiating activities themselves, participating in activities others have chosen, and following through to satisfactory mastery. Children have the opportunity to choose from different areas of the classroom. We focus on the process, not the product in all areas. A more “structured” environment will occur in kindergarten.
Children are given ample opportunity and time to explore, discover, invent, create, feel, taste, touch, relax, and enjoy a full range of activities within the preschool classroom.
