Our Development

 

Language

We encourage the children to use their words in dealing with others during play. We read books and talk about new words. We discuss letters and their sounds and we also incorporate activities in our lesson plans that focus on language development.

Gross Motor

We have outdoor play at least once per day, weather permitting. When indoors, we play games like “Duck, Duck, Goose”, parachute and have relay races.

Fine Motor

We continue to work on hand/ eye coordination and finger dexterity by stringing beads, painting with small brushes and cutting paper with safety scissors.

Social

We focus on teaching the value of “respect”, such as listening to each other speak during Circle Time. Also, we practice problem solving by approaching an issue with our minds versus crying. We also encourage the children to show empathy when someone is sad and to help each other out when help is needed.
