ABOUT THE 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

My favorite thing about teaching is observing children’s innate curiosity and questioning about EVERYTHING! I love exploring with children and asking them questions to deepen their sense of wonderment! My goal is to create as many multisensory experiences for my learners as possible to learn more about the world around them! At any point in our day, you will see us singing, playing, reading, or exploring something new. I am honored to be one of your child’s first experiences with school, and will strive to make every day a great day to be a Blue Room friend!
