December Circle

Students are playing as they exercise and develop a crucial neural function.

STEM Challenges

The challenges are undertaken simply for the love of science!

Why Play?

Pretend play develops as the vehicle through which language and cognition are educated

Reader’s Workshop

As we read aloud to the children, we model these seven reading strategies, sharing our thinking aloud. 

Read Aloud

Reading aloud to young children is the most important indicator of success.

Natural Conse-quences

They fit the nature of the offense, attempt to repair any damage to persons or property, and leave the child’s dignity intact. 

Positive Discipline

When educators make personal connections with each child and guide them with love, all children can succeed.  

Block Play

Children are invited to play creatively and as they build they are learning about engineering, symmetry, balance, and design.

Reader’s Theatre

As they bring the story to life, the plot, characters, action, and dialog become more meaningful to them.


The use of puppets brings a story to life.

Story Telling

Oral story telling is especially important in a class of students learning English as a second language.
