We believe your child comes to us with unique experiences, interests, and learning styles. Our goal is to know your child well and use this knowledge to guide, support and motivate him or her. We believe that good teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection, and collaboration. We encourage you to partner with us to give your child the most powerful and joyous learning experience possible.
Child Directed Learning Centers
Our classroom provides your child with a variety of learning environments including: art, science, manipulatives, math, blocks, dramatic play, music, listening center, writing, and reading.
Thematic Units of Study include: Beginning of the Year; Trees; Buildings; Balls; Clothes; and Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Music and Physical Education are embedded in the Units of Study. Each week we introduce a math concept and the letter of the week. You will receive a family letter at the beginning of each unit.
To promote a positive environment for learning, we use three classroom guidelines from Enlightened Discipline:
*Be safe *Be Kind *Be clean
To teach social skills such as: empathy, sharing, dealing with feelings, we use the Second Step program.
