Rainy Day Fun

 Ms. Kassidy in Pre-K One got one look at the weather that was expected for Friday & she got a plan together! She made a terrific obstacle course in her classroom for her kids!

Providing an obstacle course is designed to improve gross motor skills and general coordination. This activity will improve hand eye coordination, fine and gross motor skills, balance and manipulative skills.


Puppet Play

 Puppets of any kind are always a hit with children. Puppet play is effective because it helps the parent/teacher enter into the child's imaginary world and allows children to experience the feelings of other characters (early empathy development) and learn important social behaviors and conversation skills.


Fairy Tales

 This week has been all about fairy tales. We have been focusing on using our imaginations to see what we are capable of doing & seeing in our minds.

When children use their imagination in play they are developing crucial psychological and emotional capacities that help them understand the world in which they live and their relation to it; they are learning to solve problems, create new possibilities, even change the world.

Show & Share Skill Building

Show and tell sets the stage for children to become comfortable when speaking in public. ... After all, show and tell helps students with planning their presentation, public speaking, using different types of vocabulary and descriptive language, and fielding questions from their classmates.

Each week many of our classes participate in this coveted event. The kids are so proud of what they brought, how they are able to tell their friends about it,  most importantly their skill of sharing. Thanks to all of our parents who bring in these items, big & small, each week. This activity is so much fun!

So Much More Than Stamping

Fine motor skills are those that involve a refined use of the small muscles which control the hand, fingers and thumb. With the development of these skills, a child is able to complete important tasks such as writing, feeding oneself, buttoning and zippering. ... Little hands need to develop dexterity and strength.

Take a look at our toddlers practicing their fine motor skills with stamp art from Prescholar Enrichments!


Fresh Air & Fun

Outdoor play improves physical development. Physical skills are important for growth, physical coordination and the movement of the body. When children play outdoors they increase their ability to balance, jump, climb, throw, run and skip. Look at these cuties learning as they enjoy this past week's beautiful weather!
