Blue Room


Age Group: 2-3 Years

In the Blue Room, learning continues through hands-on activities and through play.  Themes will be chosen every two to three weeks to allow children to learn about different people, places, and things. The areas of the room are divided so that children can choose different forms of play including: art (paint, color, draw, create), blocks, reading, and dramatic play (dress-up). There are many opportunities for the children to play, interact, and learn with their friends. The activities and projects planned are developed to help the children become more independent with their self-help skills as well as their small and large motor skills. The children also learn how to socially act with their friends and teachers. This will ultimately lead to their future success in school and in life. The Blue Room is a nurturing environment scaled to the size and ability of a two-year-old. Opportunities for independence and mastery of self-care tasks such as eating, dressing, and toileting are provided. Each child is respected as an individual with a limitless capacity to develop and learn.

Why I Love Teaching

Ever since I was a young girl, I have had a strong passion to be a teacher. Between my love for children and my love to help others and show them the world, I know I am exactly in the career meant for me. My favorite part about teaching is when children finally come to a realization of what they have just learned or finally grasped. Seeing the excitement and sharing that passion to find the answer and learn more, growing with each step, is the best perk of my job. I hope to inspire in children, the same passions I feel toward learning and discovering. I hope to help children explore their interests, form opinions and preferences, and create friendships with peers around them, all while learning to be a confident young mind!
