ABOUT THE CLASS:
My philosophy of education is based on the proverb: "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." Children learn best by doing and need to be actively engaged in learning. Therefore, the kindergarten program incorporates active exploration and interaction with adults, other children, and materials. Curriculum goals are met through the use of large and small group instruction, math and literacy stations, and learning centers.
