Children at this age are very social beings and seek to find their place in the group. As children seek acceptance by their peers and needing a positive self-image. With this in mind, we provide an environment that nurtures social skills and encourage confidence and positive self-esteem. We use a hands on approach to learning where the children are active participants in small-group discussions and learn to use materials and activities where they experience success. Through active participation, children learn to work in groups and develop a sense of belonging where they share excitement about learning. In the Bluebird room, the children learn letter recognition, letter sounds, 1:1 correspondence, simple addition and subtraction using manipulatives, and experience process vs product art.
