Upon arrival your preschooler will hang up his/her backpack and jacket downstairs. Students will later take part in our opening activities, which include: calendar, songs, weather, schedule, etc.
Large and small group activities will take place throughout the day, focusing on a variety of skills: cooperation, songs and prayer, making friends, independence, sharing, counting, letters, cutting, writing names, colors, shapes, etc. Science, social studies, music, dance/movement, and more will also enhance children's growth and learning. We will read many books to introduce new topics and provide new opportunities.
During the day, a portion will be devoted to playing: our job as kids. There is so much that we can learn through play and the different interest areas of our classroom. Children will explore at blocks, art, toys and games, library, outside, and more. Center choices are specifically made to encourage growth and development and aid to our areas of study.
Students will take turns bringing snacks throughout the year. A schedule will be provided along with suggestions deemed appropriate and nutritious by DHS. This is a time for language development, conversations, practicing polite manners, and learning about the many foods we eat.
Towards the end of the day we gather to recap the day's events and share what to anticipate the next time we meet.
