General Curriculum Areas
We use a variety of materials so the child may experience the joy of creating by cutting, gluing, coloring and painting.
Art may also be used for instructive purposes such as identification of shapes, learning to follow oral instructions, sequencing steps and learning various skills, such as cutting and pasting. Activities are geared to the child’s level, and are concerned with the process of creating instead of the final product.
A variety of science materials will be out for exploration by the child in learning centers and books.
Science study increases vocabulary and general knowledge, encourages curiosity, helps the child discover natural laws, and helps the child become more aware of his/her surrounding world.
Music is used to express emotions, reinforce subject material, and as a source of joy.
We use tapes, CD’s, records, rhythm instruments, scarves, ribbon sticks, singing, clapping, and body movement.
Through manipulative table toys, games, and other activities, small muscle coordination grows.
A variety of small motor toys are offered and changed weekly to coordinate with the weekly theme.
Children received large muscle coordination through outside play, going for walks, or indoor play in the room.
Depending on the weather children are offered large muscle play two times a day.
