Everything that we do is grounded in exploration. We help our students grow their imagination and desire to learn by finding ways for them to participate in a way that is in line with their own development. Regardless of the activity, we are doing we assign different “jobs” to different students. For example, if we are exploring the Native American culture we have the little ones hold the food, and the bigger kids hold the sticks, while the oldest students think about how we are going to build the teepee.
We break our days into “classes” they range from, library time, art, music, health, outside, and lunch. Then at the end of every day, we have circle time where we recap the day and have each student talk about what we did and they enjoyed about the day.
