At A Child’s Garden preschool, we know that a child’s work is play. Each day, our students are given ample time to play, pretend, and enjoy the fresh air of our beautiful natural surroundings. We know that through play, children learn to create and interact with the world around them. Given encouragement, opportunity, and flexibility, they engage completely, learning how to explore, work in groups, and share and discover, at a pace that is uniquely their own. Do they know that undirected play is critical to developing creativity, confidence, and leadership? No, they just know that it’s fun to play outside.
We invite you and your child to experience “Magic in the Garden,” an opportunity to explore A Child’s Garden, on July 10 at 5:30 at our preschool location at New Garden Friends Meeting, 801 New Garden Rd. Nothing takes the place of a visit so come see us, ask questions, and look around. Talk to our experienced teachers and our parents. There will be magic and an icy treat for children to enjoy.
Our program blends the social curriculum of Teaching Children to Care with the active, hands-on learning activities of the Get Set for School kindergarten readiness program. We also teach our children the language to problem solve at a young age, and to have their voices heard by others in a way that is earnest and heartfelt. Our belief in non-violence is intrinsic to the fabric of our community, and gives students, as well as their parents, the peace of mind that school is a safe place to be and to learn.
We’re happy to show you how our lessons offer instruction through multiple learning modalities: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile. And we will also ask you an important question: What makes your child smile?
