Blue room I provides care for children ranging in age from 2 to 3 years of age. We provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment that encourages young children’s natural growth and development. We strive to foster each child’s individual needs through social, emotional, language, cognitive and motor development.
The teachers provide an inviting environment for the children to learn developmentally appropriate skills. We believe that children learn through play. Child –centered activities are available for a long period of the day.
Not only are the children becoming more independent at this age, but they are also learning how to express themselves in positive ways. Potty training is a large milestone that children work on achieving. Blue I teachers work with parents to help their child achieve potty-training success.
Weekly lesson plans are posted with the activities that will be provided for the children to explore. Many of the ideas on the lesson plans come from the children’s interest, which encompass the following areas: early mathematics, science, early literacy, language development, social studies, music and movement, creative expression, social and emotional development, heath and safety, and physical development.
We believe that the children’s learning takes place not only in the classroom, but outside the classroom as well. Blue I provides an enriched environment both inside and outside the classroom to provide the most learning experiences possible for your child.
