Ms. Viry's NeighborSchool
122 Durfee Street,
New Bedford, MA
I follow a routine that is appropriate for a mixed-age group. My curriculum includes lots of activities to stimulate kids of different ages. Every day brings something new and unexpected, but I use a schedule and routine to help structure our days while being flexible when necessary. I believe that learning comes from play, so I provide kids with lots of opportunities to discover, imagine, and be creative throughout the daily schedule. When we're outside, we look at the birds, the squirrels, and even the worms.
Circle time, reading time, music and dancing, and meals are also important parts of our day. Circle time includes singing songs, learning routines, games, previewing the daily schedule, and other community building activities. When I read to children, I also work to instill in them a love of books so that they'll keep wanting to read. When they're older, they'll learn so much from reading!
