PARENT EDUCATOR Kylene Ushimaru
Our Just Walkers are moving from baby to toddler--how they change from September to May!
Our class gives children lots of opportunities to explore on their own, learn to manage their emotions, and begin to learn to share with friends.
9:00 Welcome from Teacher Sara
9:00 Choice Time to explore Sensory (water or oats or cotton balls or...), Art (messy--yet safe--things you don't want to do at home), Dramatic Play (this is the birth of pretending), Blocks (build high and knock them down), Table Toys (puzzles, pegs, doll house)
10:15 Put Away Time (children begin to learn to take care of their things)
10:20 Snack (sitting together at pint sized tables)
10:40 Music (singing, dancing, shaking noisemakers)
11:00 Time to say Good Bye
With blossoming independence come parenting challenges
How to respond to the frustrated tantrums on the floor? How to get an active toddler to sit at mealtime? How to settle them down to nap?
Parent Education is an important part of Just Walkers Preschool:
= A Parenting Educator attends class each week ready to offer tips that will help at home and at school.
= As parents and children get comfortable, parents take part in a Parenting Discussion Group every other week during the children's Choice Time (close by--no worries!).
= The class chooses one night a month for Parent Meeting--time to learn about guidance and discipline AND as an adult night out together (example: first Tuesday of each month 7-9:00)
Parents get to:
"I never thought about 'preschool' for my toddler but it's been the perfect place to let him explore and learn--especially on a rainy day when I need to talk to other adults!"
