Play is the work of a child. Children learn about the world around them, by playing. So how do you as your child’s first teacher help them learn the most through their play? Our programs are designed specifically for the parent/caregiver and child to learn and grow together through various types of play and explorations!
Early Explorer’s is designed for your child to start gaining independence and experiencing a structured classroom environment without their grownup. Children will start class at their table exploring a tabletop activity. From there, we will move onto circle time where classroom expectations are established, we sing a greeting song, and read a story to introduce the day’s topic. Then we will work through two structured activities back at our table with a music and movement break in between to get our bodies moving. Class will end with another circle time to review our morning and sing a good-bye song.
