Children’s language skills are nurtured in a “language-rich” environment. In a conversational manner, teachers help children stretch their language skills by asking thought-provoking questions and introducing new vocabulary during science, art, snack time and other activities viz., creative talk/narration, role play, etc. Children have many opportunities to sing, talk about favorite read-aloud books, and act out stories.
Teachers observe, ask questions and listen to children’s ideas during these activities; “correct” answers are not the goal. To nurture their curiosity and motivation to learn, teachers use children’s interests and ideas to create activities.
Children have several choices of activities; a child who is wandering aimlessly is encouraged to choose one that interests him. Teachers are alert to a child who can’t figure out how to enter other children’s play and may offer him suggestions on ways to join the group.
Throughout their school years, children’s learning will take place in the company of their peers. They are introduced to the behaviors required to function successfully in a kindergarten classroom. For example, during group activities such as “circle time,” children learn to focus attention on the teacher, listen while others are speaking, and wait their turn to talk.
In THE LITTLE WINGS PRE-SCHOOL, our teachers value parents as the experts on their children. Parents get reports on their child’s activities and regular meetings are scheduled.
When you choose a high-quality program that suits your child and family, you can feel assured that your child is well cared for, in THE LITTLE WINGS PRE-SCHOOL. The child will enjoy activities; build knowledge, skill and confidence.
