Green Room IB
Green room IB provides a traditional preschool setting for children ages 3 to 5 years. The program runs from 8:15am – 11:15am. We provide a five morning (M-F), three morning (M,W,F), or two morning (T/TH) option to meet the needs of families. 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.
We believe that children learn through play. Child –centered activities are available for a long period of the day. A literacy program is done daily which focuses on a wide variety of the learning areas of literacy: oral language, phonological awareness, letter recognition, and print awareness. Many learning concepts such as sorting, patterning, rhyming, and counting, are explored. The literacy program also allows the children to understand letters, numbers, syllables, opposites, and colors.
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.
The children are able to explore several fieldtrips throughout the year. We believe that the children’s learning takes place not only in the classroom, but outside the classroom as well. Green IB provides an enriched environment both inside and outside the classroom to provide the most learning experiences possible for your child.
