Little Monkeys   Early Preschool  (2 - 3 years)

240_F_237102426_mv7sbqxArBUpKT9sSYPhWOlA

In the dynamic environment of our Little Monkeys classroom children begin to acclimate to a schedule within a whole group setting. Our child care approach for two and three year-olds is based upon their natural curiosity and willingness to try new things. Hands-on learning and play keeps children actively engaged and continuously interested in understanding more about themselves, their friends and family, and the world around them.

 

As Little Monkeys grow, they gain a more profound sense of independence and confidence in their abilities. New skills may include hand-washing, self-feeding, fine motor coordination, and toilet training. In addition to basic skills, your child learns about self-direction, self-reliance and self-esteem.

The teacher-to-child ratio for this classroom is 1:10 with a maximum group size of 17. An additional teacher is scheduled to assist during the busiest part of the day. This helps circle time, small groups, toilet training/diaper changes, meals and outdoor play go a little smoother.

 

Quiet Reading Areas ~ Listening Center ~ Writing Center

Creating an active and engaging learning environment is all about thoughtful design. A classroom should feel warm and welcoming when children and parents enter and should invite children to immediately begin exploring with their bodies and minds.

But what about those times when you just need

a quiet place to get away from it all?

Don't worry, we got you covered. Our new cozy learning areas were designed with this in mind!  Carved out within the classroom are intimate areas for one or two. These spaces may be filled with soft furnishings such as warm blankets, soft pillows, colorful books and furry friends or designed to allow one or two children to focus on more complex skills or materials without interruption.

We are constantly striving to improve our classroom learning environments!

Expanded Dramatic Play Area

Our dramatic play area lets your child’s creativity soar! The canopy turns our dramatic play space into a farmer’s market, doctor's office, grocery store, post office or anything else your child's imagination can envision. While our home-like furnishings allow children to re-enact everyday life by "cooking" dinner for their friends or taking care of their very own "baby".
