What is it like to be a Penguin?
Our Penguins class is designed to specifically encourage and foster development during that 3 to 4 stage of being between little and big. The days are filled with plenty of pre-literacy and math skills, along with plenty of hugs and direction. Social and self-help skills are fostered as children develop their sense of self and one another. The Penguins' classroom offers organized small group and individual instruction, as well as discovery and learning through playing and doing. Manipulatives designed to enhance concepts and fine motor skills, block building, role playing, drawing, art, stories and calendar concepts are vibrant in the classroom.
Children participate in hands-on play, stories, songs, finger-plays, art projects, large motor games, and other activities related to the weekly theme for their class. The teacher and assistant work one-on-one and with small groups of children on specific developmental skills. In addition to the enriching daily activities, the children enjoy a Bible Story once a week (optional), Science Wonders and Music and Movement classes.
Classes are either 2 days or
3 days per week
