We can play all day! We have plenty of different toys with which to play and we have 8 different "play centers" in each classroom.
Teachers instruct us as a group and also assist us kids individually while working on projects. We do worksheets regularly. We learn how to learn, not just academics. We develop manners, problem-solving, and self-control.
We have small reading clubs (5 or less) in the 4-year-old room. We love our daily reading time when a teacher reads an amazing story to us.
Whether drawing or coloring or another project, our teachers help us do an art project at least once a week.
We get two healthy snacks provided for us each day at 9:30am and 3:00pm. And we eat lunch at noon that we bring from home.
We Go Outside!
We get outside as often and as much as we can. If the weather is bad, we try to at least take short walks around the covered part of the outside of the building.
We Don't Run the Show!
Tantrums are not allowed, and we don't get to do whatever we want. We learn that pleasing Jesus and being kind to others is always more important than getting our own way.
We Have Fun!
We learn new songs and poems weekly that we love to sing and recite at home. When we learn through music and poetry, we usually don't even realize we're learning. It's like we get to play all day!
