Preschool Day 1

Filed under: Adventure,Kids,Learning — by Alison @ 6:20 pm

H had his first day of preschool today.

Ready to go.

He’s registered in a co-op preschool for 2-3 year olds. It meets twice a week and as a co-op parent I’m there with him one of those days. On a normal day, I would be assigned a station and not just follow H around. Today was our slow start day, so only half the class was there. It was a good chance for H to explore the classroom and the amazing outdoor play yard.

First look at the outdoor area.

It seems the pre-school has a very general schedule: indoor station play, snack, outdoor play, and closing circle. The teacher (Teacher Tom) is a strong advocate for free play and learning through exploration. One of the first things he said at the parent’s meeting is that “kids aren’t just mini-adults, they are fully formed children”. I like his approach and the way he interacts with the kids. I’m looking forward to the year.

Next week, I’ll leave H there by himself. This will be very new for us, but based on how much fun he had today, I think it’ll work out.

Indoor water play. Sensory table doubles as paint rinsing station.

Outdoor play. Note change of clothes as a result of indoor water table.
