No longer a toddler and not quite a preschooler this group goes through a lot of development in a short amount of time. Educators are building on their interests and providing ample opportunity for singing, reading books, and creative play. This group is exploring their individuality and noticing how they fit into the world around them - they are not just capable of looking after themselves, they are seeing the impact they make to the community as citizens of the world.
Learning through play is supported outside, using natural, open ended materials that lets the children decide how to play rather than being used for a single purpose. The children have 2 hours of outside play each day -once in the morning and again in the afternoon.
With a tire mountain to jump from, a bike path to race on, a giant sandbox for digging and pouring this yard allows for creative ways to burn energy and develop their coordination. Added are gardens the children plant in the spring and harvest in the fall to feed our pets and include in our kitchen it shows children where food comes from and the process it takes to grow. Outside play is a favourite time of day to let loose and have fun
