Crayola Room - 18 months to 2 years old
The curriculum in the Crayola Room is based on monthly thematic units as well as center based. Repetition is a key factor in learning, so the concepts are continually reinforced throughout the month and school year. The curriculum introduces the children to colors, shapes body parts and new vocabulary. New concepts are introduced and then built on through child-initiated center play. The alphabet is started in this room through song and play connections.
The development of fine motor skills is encouraged through play such as puzzles, maneuvering materials, play dough and glue stick. The development of gross motor skills is encouraged through walking, running and climbing.
