Children learn best by challenging positive play. While they are playing, they are learning and building upon their developmental skills (physical, social emotional, intellectual). They need to explore materials that demonstrate and utilize concepts and ideas.
Classroom space is divided into interest and learning areas - modified to meet the changing needs of children. Manipulative activities are available for small motor development (for example: play dough, puzzles, painting, printing, table games, etc.). Academic skills are emphasized through activities centered around recognizing symbols, sounds, sizes, shapes, colors, sorting, counting sequencing, following directions, noting differences, etc. Appropriate activities are planned to provide interest and challenges for each child.
