What’s Happening This Week

Have an amazing summer!

My Teaching Philosophy

Children learn through play, observations, music, parents, group work, reward systems, games, friends, watching others.  They learn through running, jumping, skipping, painting, coloring and reading.

Families are the children's first teacher.  The families are the ones who continue education at home and know the children best. Families are role models for children; what children do is influenced by what others have done around them. Children learn processes through social interactions and by seeing and doing. 

Educators' most important job is to understand and help children, whether it is through getting to know the families, assessing individual developmental levels of the children, providing different or new ways of learning and understanding with the curriculum, and knowing the development of children and how children learn.
