In our schedule the children get to create, move, discuss, observe, sing, and discover. We have open-ended toys which allow for imaginative play, exploration, and discovery. There are activities which allow for use of both fine motor and large motor skills. Students are free to choose what interests them. Teachers create their own curriculum based on the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress (Minnesota Early Learning Standards) and based on the interests and abilities of the children in their classes.
We encourage parent involvement. Parents may stop in to read a story or help with a project. Many times we have parents who are firefighters, police officers, doctors, dentists, etc. in our community who come and share their time with us telling us about their jobs.
Come see how play-based learning works. Teachers are always open to questions.
