Our three year and four year old program focuses on social and emotional skills along with gross and fine motor development. Language arts and literacy, mathematics, and science activities are also included, often disguised in various forms of play and free choice.
Activities in the Little Barn include:
Dramatic play; practice counting beads or blocks; learning about people, plants and animals; participating in shared activities with peers; practicing balance, jumping and throwing; participating in family style dining during snack and lunch; and learning about patience and manners. Children begin to recognize print through identifying their names on their coat hook, participating in question of the day, using the job chart, graphing the weather, using the light switches, identifying faucet temperatures, "reading" books, being read to and recognizing the labeled play areas and bins.
