I LOVE this picture we took this morning. The children were all a chatter about building their roads, bridges, ramps, train tracks, and towers. They were excitedly working with us and together. We counted how many "blocks tall" the towers were. We counted how many "blocks long" the roads were. We practiced proactive noticing of one another's accomplishments and how challenging their work was they they "DID IT!" with high fives all around.
The following article confirmed what I already knew; why meaningful play and conversations with the emotionally present and well trained early education professionals in their lives DRAMACTICALLY enhances learning.
Please take a moment to read the link posted. If you child is enrolled with us, it will help explain the term "rigorous cirriculum" and show you real indicators of how we meet that each day.

Thanks for attaching the link. Great article! I think back to Logan's first week when she didn't know what to do with the glob of playdough. Thank goodness for your rigorous preschool curriculum - it has made all the difference in the world in her interactions, vocabulary - her overall learning!!
