ABOUT THE RED ROOM
Age Group: 3-5 Years
Welcome to the Red Room! The Red Room is full of opportunities to grow and learn together throughout the day. Children will learn through a play-based curriculum that focuses on many early literacy skills. Children will be offered choices of play-based centers developed throughout the room according to the monthly theme. Children will be given the chance to develop social skills while working in centers, motor skills with planned arts and crafts, independent skills, and how to be responsible for their own actions. The Red Room is a welcoming place where children learn to respect themselves and others.
In the Red Room, learning continues through hands-on activities and through play as in our other classrooms. There are many opportunities for the children to play and interact with friends while learning. 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 interact with their friends and teachers.
The children are exposed to many early literacy skills. They are encouraged to be independent and responsible for their own actions. The Red Room is a place where children are all “friends” and love and respect is shown to everyone who enters.

Why I Love Teaching
Teaching young children is a passion of mine. I love spending my day with little minds and watching them grow emotionally, physically, and academically. Learning through play with these little people and teaching them how to be the best person they can be is awesome. I love seeing their bright smiling faces on a daily basis and learning all about what is important to them and their world. My favorite aspect of teaching is seeing the children develop connections between what is taught in the classroom and their home life. I love seeing the children’s faces when a new concept has finally clicked with them. They are always SO proud of themselves. Young children are some of the happiest people I know, and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my day than with some of the happiest people I know.
