The Green Room children 3-year-olds are constantly learning throughout the day by continuing to develop their self-help skills, strengthening their creativity, learning how to be more independent, being challenged in their thinking, and developing their community skills.
Every morning the children are brought together for morning meeting in which we go over the day’s schedule, weather, and events the children feel like sharing.
Songs and stories are shared not only in the morning, but several times a day. In the Green Room, there are many areas of interest for the children to play and learn. These areas are: Discovery, Art, Sensory Table, Dramatic Play/Kitchen, Manipulative, Blocks, Dollhouse, Library, and Computer.
The children have many opportunities every day to choose their own activities during free choice time, as well as time to engage in outdoor play in both the morning and afternoon. The children’s gross motor skills are not only developing during outdoor play, but also during dancing, movement, yoga, & Zumba.
Not only do the children get to experience a rich indoor environment, they also have opportunities to experience the nearby outdoor environment. We occasionally take walks around the Tribeca area, visiting Washington Square Park, the Hudson River, and talking about what we see and hear in our environment. The Green Room children are provided with many opportunities to explore their imagination and creativity, and gain new knowledge and skills, as well as further developing skills previously learned.
