Learning should be fun. We teach through play and group events. Engaging children in activities that promote fine and gross motor skills, critical thinking, imagination, and creativity lay the groundwork for independent thinking, rigor, and problem-solving ability. We provide many resources and manipulatives that support this type of hands-on learning. We carefully and strategically select each item in our classroom. It is our job as teachers to use these materials to introduce new ideas, encourage different concepts and perspectives that expand the thought processes and development of neural pathways.
