Welcome to the Early Childhood 2 Room!
About the Early Childhood 2 Room Directress:
Karen Hopkins - Lead Directress
Welcome to the Early Childhood 2 classroom! We strive for children to have an academically enriched atmosphere that takes place in a well-ordered environment. The wisely selected materials are carefully prepared and are intended to help the children develop their sense of independence, identity, concentration, self-motivation, and a genuine love of learning. The children during these years will hone in on refining their social skills and one example of how we teach them empathy and compassion is through the use of the “peace rose” that is used as a problem-solving technique among peers during disagreements. This example, along with many other approaches, model for the children ways to assert themselves socially and establish ties with peers while problem solving effectively through communication. True to Montessori philosophy and the “cosmic approach” (teaching the children about the whole concept and working towards the smaller parts), the children will learn everything about the world around them down to the street they live on. Other lessons and activities that are given are skills in reading, writing, language expression through drawing, writing, mathematics, geography, nature studies, science, practical life, sensorial, social skills, art, music, fitness, and Spanish.
