We begin each day with circle time which is a group gathering during which the day’s plans, ideas, and observations are shared. Circle time activities are designed to stimulate children’s thinking, enrich their social skills and expand their attention spans.
After circle time, children are then encouraged to explore classroom learning centers. All classroom materials are placed on low shelves, encouraging children to select and use materials on their own. We also label our containers to assist the children in putting the toys away. This helps build their self confidence and independence.
