Week of September 10, 2018

The teachers have observed some of our friends interests: stacking, building, dramatic play and classifying objects. We have added materials to our learning environment to encourage and extend these interests. A classroom goal is to support children in entering play, interacting with friends and developing social skills. The teachers model and use language to express this goal-Oh it looks like you want to play with____, let’s ask if we can join? or It looks like you want to play with, it looks like she playing with babies, would you like a baby as well?

First Week of School

The toddlers have been busy exploring the various areas and materials in the classroom. 

First Day of 2018-2019 School Year

Today we spent the day exploring our new classroom set up, meeting new friends and teachers and beginning to learn our classroom norms.  We are excited to begin our new school year together.

In the toddler class, creative play is always an interest. On this day the children spent time filling the picnic basket with food, creating buses using chairs to travel to the beach, and our trusty fire fighters helped in keeping all pretend fires under control.

The toddlers are voting for the songs they want to sing at the end of the celebration.  The first step was brainstorming songs.  Then each child chose the songs they wanted to sing by writing their name on the survey.  We counted how many voted for each song and chose the two songs with the most votes.
