Today, we added the magnifying glasses as a new element to a familiar provocation. This allowed the children to explore the natural materials in a way we had yet to experience. We were very interested in how the sizes of the rocks, shells, etc. changed as we moved closer or further away while looking through the magnifiers.
In support of our ever growing interest in music, we added the drums as a provocation choice & practiced a new song with a “shaker egg!”
St. Mary’s believes that all children have the right to the highest quality early childhood education. The benefits of the child’s involvement in a high quality program are proven. It is our intention that all children and families who walk through our doors experience the best educational experience possible.
