During Work Time in the Shady Spot classroom, the children engage in a variety of activities.  Throughout the activities, the children interact with each other and their teachers, and sometimes work on solving problems when a conflict arises.  In these pictures, you can see the following Key Developmental Indicators represented: Listening and Responding, Initiative, Taking Apart and Putting Together, Exploring Print, and Moving With Objects.  That’s a lot of learning!

The new swings on the toddler playground.

June 20, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Hello families,

Some of you may have noticed we have two new swings on the toddler playground! We have removed two baby swings to allow for us to have two swings that are the same ones you find on the preschool playground. This has allowed the older toddlers to have practice with the bigger swings for when they transition to the preschool playground. Below are a few of our older toddlers trying out the swings.

The children seem to really enjoy our new additions to the playground!
