Join our community of friends each week for play and exploration! Together, we will wonder about the world, ask questions, make predictions, use our senses to gather information, and learn new things each time. Your children will paint, draw, sand play, water play, get creative with nature, explore art supplies and construction materials as they stretch and strengthen their minds and bodies. Each week we will have new items and creative opportunities to explore. At the Wonder Room, we strive to build a learning environment and community of friends where each individual is allowed to develop at their own pace - socially, physically, and intellectually.
Our small group size allows for the time and space needed for each child to feel part of a community. As educators, it allows us the chance to "know" the children, and their abilities, learning styles and interests. This multi-aged group is a natural and authentic way to engage with things, people, and the environment without the '"safety net" of parents. It also encourages the building of relationships as children learn to understand themselves, how they fit in as a contributor, and how they are as individuals (with their own temperaments and personalities). This program helps nurture:
Concentration and focus
Listening and communication
Accepting and respecting our own work and the ideas and work of others
Flexibility and adaptability
Confidence in ones own abilities
Creativity and imagination
Each week the children will have an opportunity to bring home a bag of books to explore at their leisure that they return the following class for a new series.
