Preschoolers have gained a lot of confidence, agility, co-ordination and understanding. Now they need time and experiences to further establish friendships, knowledge, language and skills. How can we help? We can provide:

Physical

– sensory materials such as play dough, finger paints, sand and water

– large, open space for running, jumping, dancing and climbing

– team building games, i.e. “Mother, may I?” or “What Time is it Mr. Wolf?”

– allowing time for children to dress themselves (buttons, zippers, snaps and shoes)

– small and large wooden or plastic blocks

Cognitive/Intellectual

– learning through play about letters, words, colors, numbers, shapes, sorting and sizes

– reading and encouraging children to get involved with the story (“what happens next”)

– time for exploration and problem solving

– Mandarin, Spanish, French and Sign language learning

– mental mathematics (abacus)

– financial literacy (saving and spending money, etc.)

– introduction to robotics

Emotional

– listening to, naming and modeling feelings and discussing how to express them in a safe manner

– opportunities for children to express their opinions about likes/dislikes, activities to choose, what to eat or what to wear
