We believe in learning through play in an environment that is full of love and respect. By providing a place that is both stimulating and secure, children gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences with new friends. They explore and experiment to make sense of the world around them. Playing with peers develops social and cognitive skills and helps children to mature emotionally.
Our outdoor area is designed to encourage children to socialize while learning through self-directed play. This space offers an array of STEAM and dramatic play options, as well as plenty of space to run around. Daily activities include art, music and science.
Research shows that physical activity builds neural pathways, the connections by which information travels through the brain. A child whose brain has developed more neural pathways will be able to learn more easily. Gymnastics is the perfect activity for "crossing the mid-line" of the brain. By practicing movements that connect the left and right hemispheres of the brain, children develop a greater balance of creativity and logical thinking.
Whether we are learning shapes, colors, letters or numbers, we have “seat time” to introduce or familiarize students with academic concepts and build school readiness skills. Then, we use play time (developmental learning) to allow children to explore the concept hands on and become confident in their knowledge through experience.
