The Red Barn’s Bunnies program recognizes that at this age of development your child’s sense of exploration will lead to increased ability in communication and motor-skills. Due to this, the Bunnies’ teachers create lesson plans aimed to foster this physical and social growth. Children spend a large portion of the day self-selecting activities that will allow them to explore, create and challenge themselves.
However, linguist development remains to be an important component of the program. Teachers read to your child numerous times throughout the day. While doing this they strive to make your child a part of the reading process through questioning, predicting, and other research guided reading strategies. In addition, children spend time every day learning about the letter of the week through art and fun activities.
Circle time is offered daily. Children are encouraged to participate in the fun dancing and learning done at this time. During circle time the letter of the week is introduced through that particular letter’s special puppet and song. At the Red Barn we strive to make learning fun and enjoyable for all our children!
Once again, communication is an important aspect of the Red Barn’s program. There will be time at drop-off and pick-up for communication with your child’s teacher. A “Daily Sheet” will be provided with a detailed report of your child’s sleeping patterns, eating schedule, temperament, and other fun things he or she did throughout the day!
