Characteristics of the Classroom
Teacher Training/Certifications Required
24 hours of annual Early childcare training
CPR/1st Aid Required
In this classroom, the students thrive off of educational activities that are incorporated in their small groups and center play. Each child is growing in their communication and language development every day and they need more and more socialization to reach their full potential! These little ones grow from their center play (blocks/cars, homeliving, library, puzzles/games) because it is a picture of the real world in a classroom. The children have to solve problems that come up (and ask the teacher for help with these problems), they have to deal with conflict resolution (as their friend that are playing parallel or with them may have a different idea about what they want to do), and how to properly handle items/people (from books and toys to their friends feelings). Our friends in the classroom are mastering basic self help skills as well as being introduced to more advanced elements of the curriculum. The students will work on their gross motor skills by drawing and painting, will learn their beginning numbers and ABC's through small and large group activities, and will actively work throughout the year on going to the bathroom independently!
Cleanliness & Sanitation
∗Toys are rotated out throughout the day. Any soiled/dirty toys are placed in a separate bin for cleaning and new toys are placed out for the children to play with.
∗All surfaces such as centers, tables and learning stations are sanitized routinely throughout the day and before closing to ensure fresh for the following day.
