Little Learner

LITTLE LEARNER PURPLE CLASS
Two years old by September 1st of current year
Registration for the youngest members of the Preschool Program is continuous throughout the school year based on space availability.  Two days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., children socialize, explore the discovery centers in the classroom, participate in “circle time”, chart the weather, share books, sing, experiment with a variety of craft materials, and weather permitting, play outside. Following simple directions, the children learn to clean up their toys, hang up jackets, etc. Parents may expect emails about the activities of the day.  A Memory Book of the year is created for each child. A snack is provided each morning. Parents are asked to propose choices of combinations of days for attendance (for example Mon. & Wed. or Tues. & Fri; etc.). Once the days are scheduled by staff, they are reserved for your child and will remain constant for the school year.

LITTLE LEARNER TEAL CLASS
Turning three after September 1st, during October, November, or December of current year
The Teal Class is a transition class. “Potty training” is encouraged but not required until January. The basic yearly curriculum explores the weather of the changing seasons which includes but not limited to the self-help skills of putting on, taking off, hanging up jackets/coats, hats, boots, and mittens which are all part of the changing seasons. The Teal Class celebrates the holidays of each month through a variety of activities and crafts.  Children use an assortment of paints, doughs, fabrics; learn songs, rhymes; and take nature walks in the beautiful Seyller Park to observe nature and collect samples for indoor projects. Children are introduced to group play indoors and outdoors, circle time, listening to books read, and the classroom routine in general. Teal Class meets twice a week for 2 ½ hours each meeting. Parents will receive emails of the activities of the week. A Memory Book of the year is created for each child. A snack is provided each morning. Day Care is available before and after the Teal Class if space is available.

LITTLE LEARNER YELLOW, SUNFLOWER, RED, PINK & ROSE CLASSES
Three years old by September 1st of current year and “potty trained”
Little People Playtime provides a variety of choices of days and times in order to offer the most age-appropriate opportunities for this year when the children are turning from three to four years old. All classes are 2 ½ hours. The two-day program is planned for young threes if this is their first group experience. The three-day program is beneficial for children closer to four years old as it offers one more day of organized group activities. Both the two day and three day curriculum reinforce the children's understanding of the alphabet, colors, numbers, shapes, and their name in print. Plenty of socialization time is offered both indoors and outdoors to provide time to support new friendships and encourage playing together. Many opportunities are presented to explore the classroom centers; dabble in paint and doughs; create with craft materials; improve spatial relations with puzzles; practice self-expression at circle time, in song, Mother Goose Rhymes, and show and tell. Every day is special in these classrooms! All children must be “potty trained” although some assistance is given in the bathroom. Weekly newsletters and frequent email reminders keep parents well informed of the activities. A Memory Book of the year is created for each child. A snack is provided each class. Day Care is available before and after these classes if space is available.
