Sensory Fun!

A bit of messy sensory today with our toddlers! Using shaving cream on the table and letting the toddlers use their creativity to move it around and feel it is a great sensory activity. It allows them to feel and create at the same time. Using these two senses at the same time does wonders for their development. This is also an easy activity for at home too!

Snowy Monday!

It's a snowy wonderful Monday here at AOSL! We have lots of kids who stayed home to enjoy the snow day today, however, many came to school ready to enjoy it here as well. Preschool 2 went out this morning to check it out and have a little snow ball fight. It is important for the kids to experience all types of weather and get creative with what they think of it!

Loving this Sunshine!

Children need to play outside every day, even in winter. Going outside to run, jump, yell, and wiggle allows children to use their large muscles and work off extra energy. Moving out into the fresh air is also healthier for children than keeping them inside a closed building where germs can easily spread. What a fun day!

Enrichment Time

We love enrichment time! This week we are working on hand & eye coordination as the children use their fine motor skills to grasp a fishing pole, pick up a fish & drop it in a bucket. The kids had a blast with Ms. Shellie with this one! 

Painting with Toddlers

Painting aids children acquire hand-eye coordination, an important skill in their age. Painting can help children learn sizes, shapes, patterns and designs. These are all critical aspects of their curriculum during pre-school years. Painting helps children develop their decision-making skills as well. It's wonderful to see the imaginations soar with kids as they get creative!
