Each month, a calendar will be posted where parents may sign up for a day to bring snack. Please bring 100% juice or milk along with fruit and some type of whole grain carbohydrate (i.e. crackers, oatmeal cookies, string cheese, muffins, cheese pizza, sandwiches cut into quarters). We have a student with a severe peanut allergy, do not send anything with peanuts or peanut butter. Please bring enough for 20 students. On birthdays or special occasions cookies or cupcakes are great, however, save the sugary snacks for these special occasions. Due to the high choking hazard, please do not send popcorn, grapes, carrots or whole nuts. Please bring enough for the whole class.
A Day in the Life of a Tiny Tot
Tiny Tots offers morning and afternoon classes for children ages three to five. Students that are three years old will attend class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students that are four or five years old will attend class on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This class will prepare four and five year olds for kindergarten.
Each day will begin with free play. Next is story time, where a book or story will introduce the topics for the day's activities. The children will divide into groups and work on projects. The projects will consist of one art project and another project that will help to develop essential skills (counting, letter recognition, cutting, etc.) Students will also have an opportunity for free play indoors. Free play includes building with blocks, dramatic play, and of course, play dough. After clean-up, another circle time will reiterate the concepts taught and reinforced through the projects. Songs, dancing and calendar take place during this session. Then, the children can enjoy a small snack. Our last activity of the day is outdoor playground time.
Our class will have a weekly music program featuring Mr. Ken Cooper. Mr. Cooper's music program is used in many other preschools as well as kindergartens in the area. Students will enjoy 30 minutes of learning through song. Mr. Cooper's website is www.mistercooper.com.
Throughout the year there are a few field trips that the classes will be going on. Places to be visited include the pumpkin patch, the zoo, and Fairy Tale Town.
