“Play is the highest form of research.”Albert Einstein
Research shows that play is the most effective way for children to learn.
When we play together at our school, we are learning:
Social Skills to help us empathize, share and build friendships
How to recognize and regulate our emotions
How to work together to solve problems
Gross Motor Skills to help us balance and feel in control of our bodies
Literacy Skills to help us love reading and recognize familiar letters/words
Fine Motor Skills to strengthen our hands and prepare us for writing
Math Skills such as counting and sorting
Creative Expression and feeling proud of our effort
Growth Mindset and that we grow every time we try
How to explore, experiment and construct with curiosity in our world
That God’s love is there for all of us
At FLRB Preschool, we utilize the play-based approach outlined in The Creative Curriculum for Preschool by Dodge, Colker and Heroman and SecondStep: Social-Emotional Skills for Early Learning. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about this and the other curriculum we use.
