The work Cycle 9:05-10:30
The feeling of belonging is a fundamental part of every student's success and wellbeing. Every lesson encourages the connection between children, peers, and teachers. While laying the foundation for learning, students master their environment, work independently, collaborate in small groups, and work together as a classroom. At times, the process can be very hands-on, requiring communication and movement, and other times the work requires staying quiet, being fully focused, and attentive.
Every moment invites new language experiences as children learn to interact with one another as they freely make their way through the classroom. Teachers are gently guiding children's social and academic experiences, building a foundation of trust, getting to know each child's interests, strengths, and how to guide their learning.
The curriculum for toddlers is designed to support children's independence giving them the tools to be successful. Children build their coordination and focus on carrying out daily living tasks. Students have individualized curriculums that are tracked by teachers as they are presented with new materials or concepts. As students work with these activities, teachers use their observations and data to plan each student individually or within small paired groups.
