As a Reggio Emilia-inspired school, Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool provides an emergent curriculum to children every day, but what is Reggio Emilia? Who does it benefit? When, where, why, and how is it implemented?
Sending a child to school knowing they are vulnerable to dangers like allergic reactions can be nerve-racking, especially with young children that may not be completely capable of regulating what they’re eating and touching.
Toddlers can be tough—kids can be tough, teenagers too, but establishing rules for your toddler early promotes better behavior moving forward. Rules make doing the things parents like to do with their children fun and safe, whether that’s playing at a park, visiting toy stores, or even just having a nice breakfast at home.
Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine™, consists of fun, engaging monthly themes like “Music and Movement” and “Heart Healthy Lifestyle.” The theme for May is “Gardening and Horticulture.”
The process of choosing just one teacher each month is beyond difficult, but we are pleased to announce that our 2020 March National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Kassidy of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of San Antonio at Stone Oak.
The first word most children learn to read is their name. Which is why the letters that make up their name are often the first letters a child learns to identify. This activity is a super fun way to help your child identify certain letters and build their name.
