    Hello everyone, I am happy to welcome your children back to school. We are excited to start our daily learning and exploring again. The children will continue to learn through hands on activities and purposeful play. In Pre-K we use Tools of the Mind Curriculum. Click the link below to find out more about how we learn and play.

    Things to remember: 
     The Importance of Reading with your Child
    ~ to develop language skills
    ~exercise for the brain
    ~help with concentration
    ~encourages a thirst for knowlwdge
    ~helps teach children about different topics and make connections to the worldaround them
    All remote students received paper based packets to help with at home learning. In the packet is a calendar that has a self regulation activity and a pretend play scenario. This is the heart of our curriculum at school. Pretend play and self regulation can be used at home throughout your daily routine.
