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

I love teaching preschool because the children are full of energy and eager to learn. Everything is so new and exciting to the children that they don’t realize how much they are learning through play and the everyday activities that we do. Children learn in many different ways which makes it fun to plan activities that deal with different areas, but deal with the same concept.

As a teacher, it is my goal to get children started on being lifelong learners. I want them to think of learning as fun and for them to enjoy school so they look forward to the next step in their learning journey.
