The process of choosing just one teacher each month is beyond difficult, but we are pleased to announce that our 2020 August National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Stephanie of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Chesterfield.
While many factors will influence how children perform in school during this fall, one of the most important factors is parental support. Showing your children that you’re excited about and supportive of their educational journeys, despite the added stress of COVID-19, will greatly influence how they react to their altered schooling this fall.
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?
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.”
