4/5 Year-Old Classroom Description
Each child is viewed as a unique individual with his/her own pattern of growth and development. Free choice time allows the children to initiate their own play experiences with a variety of fine motor activities as well as role-playing areas. Learning about math, science, social studies, and health are integrated through meaningful activities such as those when children play with blocks, measure sand, water or cooking ingredients, observe changes in the environment, work with tools, sort objects, explore plants, animals, water, draw, paint, and work with clay. This allows a lot of individual interaction between children and the teacher.
The children are given experiences to develop basic reading skills. They experiment with writing and reading by drawing and copying, listening to and reading stories and poems, taking field trips or listening to speakers, dictating stories and seeing classroom charts and print.
Children are given time each day for large muscle development through climbing, running, dancing, and playing outside. All our activities help develop positive feelings toward learning.
The all day programs will be served lunch. We will be serving lunches that the school offers but through family style. Lunch will take place from 11:30 - 12:00. The lunch account will be a separate account from your monthly tuition or state funding.
MONTHLY PAYMENTS MUST BE MADE BY THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH. IF PAYMENT IS NOT PAID, YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND UNTIL PAYMENT IS MADE.
If financial assistance is needed, it is the responsibility of the parent to make contact with HEADSTART and Child Care Resource and Referral. Both of these organizations are great support systems for our families.
