Exploring Feelings and Emotions

Children begin developing emotional skills from birth. Emotional skills include being able to recognize, express, understand and manage a wide range of feelings. These skills are important for children’s developing ability to interact successfully with others and their physical world. Children who can understand and manage their feelings, stay calm and enjoy their experiences, are more likely to develop a positive sense of self and be confident and curious learners. Our Preschool 4 and Pre K friends have been exploring their emotions this week. Take a look!

Toddlers and Chalk!

Playing with chalk not only helps develop fine-motor skills such as grasping and holding, but also improves visual judgment and stimulates imagination. It's a good activity for our teachers to  encourage.

During Open House, parents have the opportunity to:

Outside Voices

Our friends in Toddler 4 are learning the classroom rules for the new school year. They talked about using softer inside voices while in the classroom and using big outside voices while outside. Take a look at their big, outside-voice faces! Hilarious!

A grandparent's love is strong and deep, filled with memories to cherish and keep!

My School Family

Our friends in Pre K 2 were so excited today to learn all the names of the kids in their class. Their teachers put together a neat table top activity, in which they had to guess the first letter of their friends' names. What a cool way to combine beginning letter sounds and learn your friends name!
