Ms. Jane's NeighborSchool
173 Pine Street,
We mix structured activities with free play and pretend. When the weather is nice, we spend time outside in the morning and in the afternoon. I see opportunities for learning through all of this. When we're playing, that's an opportunity to teach social skills. When we're outside, that's an opportunity to ask questions about blowing bubbles and to observe the nature. When we're doing puzzles, that's an opportunity to develop fine motor skills. When we're eating, that's an opportunity to learn about having a healthy diet.
I also include developmentally appropriate structured learning that accounts for individual kids' needs. I use the Massachusetts infant and toddler guidelines to make a plan, and then I tailor that plan to the children in my program. They learn their numbers, letters, shapes, and colors among other things. Parents always tell me that their kids are well prepared for school.
