Classroom structure is specifically organized to allow for a balance of active and quiet times. This balance allows children to have the focus and energy they need to participate fully at all times. Throughout the day, children have the chance to take part in large-group, small-group and individual activities.
The daily schedule, structure and routine are extremely important for young children. This structure allows them to feel safe and secure when they can predict the sequence of the day.
During open time, students choose from a variety of toys and materials that can be used individually or in a group. These activities and materials are easily accessible, open-ended and regularly changed to appeal to a variety of interests and developmental levels. This time is important because it allows children opportunities to make independent decisions about what they want to do. This allows them to experiment and take turns, which in turn builds confidence in children's ability to make choices in the future!
A variety of snacks are distributed such as fresh fruit, crackers, cheese and veggies. Occasionally, snacks are prepared by the children as a math or science activity.
Center time provides a balanced time between child-initiated play and teacher-directed activities. Our teachers create individualized projects and activities based upon their class. Some activities are outlined below.
