In our preschool:
Our Circle Room is where children can play with games, blocks and ramps with cars and trucks. They may also dress up, act on our stage, fill containers with sand or wood chips at one of our sensory tables, pound a nail into a piece of wood at our carpentry table, and/or visit our class pet Zebra finches, Pip and Dragon. Our Circle Room is also where our arts and crafts table is located. The children can paint on an easel, fingerpaint or create their own art or work on a craft that relates to the theme. Our math center is here as well with puzzles, games, and a light table.
Our Snack Room is where children can play in our pretend house and grocery store, read in the library, climb in our loft or sit down to make and have a nutritious snack. Our science counter is located here where they can check on our newly hatched chicks in the Spring, besides investigating bones, leaves, rocks or magnets.
Our Climbing Room is a place where children can climb and slide on our play structures and pretend to be a firefighter in our fire truck. There are hoses to put out fires besides a jet plane to go on many adventures. There are blocks in this room too along with a magnetic board for more math in the form of marble tracks and gears. This is one of our most popular rooms!
For Outside or Gym Time the children can climb on our beautiful outdoor play structure or go to the gym on rainy days where they’ll find balls, scooters and hoops. During this time, half of the working parents will meet with the Teacher for a discussion about parenting.
At Circle Time we sing songs, have felt-board stories, do movement activities and sharing related to the letter of the alphabet or topic that we are studying that particular week. Then, just as we greeted each other at the beginning of the school day, we sing the goodbye song and say farewell until we meet again.
