Nursery Through Pre-Kindergarten
(ages two through four)
Our students play a lot. One half of their day is spent playing, but that doesn't mean they're not learning. During this time, they are
Meeting friends,
Playing with toys,
Looking at books,
Listening to music,
Sharing,
Pouring and measuring in the sandbox,
Having different experiences in a mostly child group situation vs. a mostly adult situation,
Developing and expanding play experiences,
Learning to share the adults' attention,
Learning social skills needed to play games and make friends,
Building with materials that may not be available at home,
Using messy art materials in a place provided for experimentation,
Trying on different personalities with different clothing,
Becoming independent,
Comparing and contrasting different experiences, and
Learning from others while broadening their horizons.

So you see, what looks like play is really hard work!
