At WPSN we are acutely aware of the importance of a successful beginning at preschool. For this reason we start each school year with a home visit by both co-teachers to allow children to meet us first in a familiar and safe environment. Our gentle separation process allows for school visits, a near-by parent, if needed, and respects individual differences among children.
In the Two's Investigators program children engage in a wide range of investigations and play. With the support of their teachers, children use the materials of the preschool to investigate questions such as:
How does clay behave when you poke it? Wet it? Cut it with a wire?
What can you create using paint?
I wonder what happens when I squeeze, pound, or combine things together?
What can you do with a tube?
By year’s end children have developed relationships with their teachers and the other children. With skilled teachers to assist with negotiations, children begin the process of learning to take a turn, share resources, solve conflicts and help a friend.
The Two's Investigators class is an ideal introduction for both parent and child to WPSN, its Reggio-Emilia inspired curriculum, and the emphasis on play that is fundamental to preschool children.
