Preschoolers are adept at walking, climbing, hopping, skipping, marching, dancing, and even galloping. That is why it is important that we provide each child ample opportunity to move in a fun fashion to promote their good physical health. Safe games, dancing, and physical activities both indoors and outside allow each child to get a stronger sense of their gross motor abilities.
Each day your child will be practicing hand-eye coordination through building block structures, puzzles, stringing beads, using tools, sensory exploration center, and of course using kids scissors, crayons, and other forms of fine motor attributes.
Through various carefully designed areas in each class children have a chance to explore make-believe and dress-up play. Each child is urged to develop social play and pretend play with peers. Children also have many opportunities to develop emotionally by drawing pictures and engaging in other forms of artistic expression – the results of which are displayed at various family events to which parents are, of course, invited.
It is important to us that all children always feel secure, comfortable, welcomed, and cared for every day at our center. Children will be filling their emotional and social “buckets” daily to have a sense of accomplishment at the end of every month, using How Full Is Your Bucket?
