Firefly Class (Age 2.5 by September 1)
In Firefly room we strive to create a fun and nurturing environment. We work hard to help each child develop a lifelong love of learning. Play is the most important element in all that we do, it is crucial in helping children grow, learn, and explore. We also introduce basic academics such as colors, numbers, and shapes in a variety of fun and engaging ways. The other key piece in our classroom is helping children to develop social skills. Being in a classroom setting with so many other children can lead to social situations that they may not be used to at home, so we do our part in providing them with the tools needed to feel successful. These tools can be everything from turn taking, talking through a conflict, or simply learning to wait patiently. Our classroom also gives children the opportunity to begin to see themselves as capable individuals by offering safe choices and teaching beginning self-help skills.
We look forward to getting to know your families, and providing all Firefly students with a fun, positive, first year of preschool experience!
