Activities include finger plays and stories, songs, poems, calendar- and theme-related discussions. Show & Tell times provide opportunities for sharing personal stories and experiences. Letter and number recognition, which includes phonemic awareness, is also included.
Craft activities help children learn to listen and follow multi-step directions while completing a fun project to take home. They are able to practice fine motor skills using scissors, glue, markers, and crayons. Children paint each week, and a variety of techniques are presented.
Each of our days has a “Free Choice” time. We have play equipment and do go outside to play when the weather permits. All classrooms contain climbers and other large play equipment as well as table games, blocks, housekeeping areas, and sand tables.
A snack is provided daily. Parents are encouraged to provide snacks for birthday celebrations or other occasions.
Singing, musical instruments and CDs for motor movements and dance are used on a daily basis.
Reading a story is a wonderful conclusion to our school day. We use a variety of literature appropriate for each age group.
Our 4-year-old students and Pre-K walk to the Batavia Public Library each month for story time. Other field trips may include visits to a pumpkin farm, Funway for bowling, a firehouse and a local play production.
