The children are encouraged to learn through play working toward their individual milestones or age-specific tasks that most children do by a certain age. This is done in a variety of ways such as themes, developmentally appropriate activities, and field trips just to name a few. These activities are provided in a child-centered environment and our small mixed age group gives more one-on-one time with each child. In addition, each child will learn about their world through observing, comparing, classifying, reasoning-through, and self-correcting. The children are encouraged and are happy to explore their world inside and outside; therefore, they don't miss the television because I don't use one.
