Added Values of Room 108

Developmental screenings are conducted twice yearly, once in the beginning of the school year and once in the late Spring, to assess student progress and growth.  This allows teachers to assess skill levels and target specific developmental deficits for each child.  Daily communication is sent home on each child regarding activities, behavior, sleep routines, etc.

Curriculum:

Our curriculum is literacy-based and focused on language development and social/emotional growth. Books and thematic activities along with enrichment materials continue to provide three-year olds with a rich awareness of the world around them and establish a foundation for reading, science, and math. Increased opportunities to explore themes and individual interests through hands-on activities and science experiments.Focus on academics happens in large and small group settings as well as in one-on-one instruction.

The purpose of discipline in the classroom is to teach children self-discipline. Positive reinforcement is used to foster good behavior in the classroom.  Redirection is also used consistently to help children focus on options and activities that are available.  If behavior issues persist, the teachers work closely with the parents and our therapy staff to develop strategies to help modify behavior.
