“The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn”.-John Lubbock
This age group is that of small successes, such as being able to listen to a story for longer periods of time, getting your own backpack, or completing a small art project independently. When these small successes are accumulated together they create a confident and focused learner. It is in this age group where the building blocks for later school success are begun. During both group time and play time we work with the needs of each student to help them to develop social skills as well as an understanding of classroom expectations. As the year progresses and students become acclimated to being a part of a cooperative classroom group, teachers are able to begin introducing more complex learning activities. We believe in the power of positive reinforcement. It has an ability to create a confident and independent learner. We strive to ensure that our students’ first school experience is one that creates a love for learning and school
