SKILLS /INFANTS – Everyday is an experience in teaching
Cause and Effect through mirrors, rattles, mobiles, and Wire
Bead mazes. Infants begin to learn about their environment
through movement and exploration, which they are given every
opportunity to do so, inside and outside.
KNOWLEDGE/TODDLERS - My garden is sensory experience with
the sounds of wind chimes and birds, the sights of flowers,
dirt and a rock herb garden, a cool place to explore. What's
in the sky, is a game we play looking for planes and birds,
the moon or sun and cloud games to find the shapes.
We are hands on with Science and Nature. We take Nature
Walks. We work with Time, Distance, Weights and Measures.
What sinks and floats in water? We organize and sort, group
and classify, compare and count. We find bugs and
butterflies, crickets and caterpillars. We explore and dig,
collect and collage.
Inside we have awesome interactive games like Dr. Brain and
Thinkin' Things Science, which help the kids create science
labs and perform experiments with marbles and mazes on the
computer. The kids can feed the cats and make butterflies.
We watch birds and bunnies from our lunch seats. We
visualize how things work with Marble Works and Safari
Gears. We create Homemade Goop to play with, make Origami.
We talk about the weather and change the weather chart.
