A Glimpse of What We Offer
In our program, you will most often see children building, creating, manipulating, and experimenting with loose parts in addition to practicing grace and courtesy. Some children choose to participate in teacher led activities such as crafts and group games while others engage in spontaneous play with peers.
We provide a multi-aged program which encourages children to build relationships based on common interests regardless of grade level. However, most early childhood and lower elementary children tend to engage in sensorial experiences and transition from associative to cooperative play. Upper elementary children often take on leadership roles by organizing activities, inventing materials, and making accommodations in order to include younger peers. They also give practical life lessons, contribute ideas for programming purposes, and problem solve when presented with a challenge.
Some of the other activities are:
- opened-ended art
- board games
- outside play
- pet care
- care of environment
We are continuously working to enhance our program and serve the CMP-OR community. We appreciate all of the support and feedback we receive because it helps us reach higher standards. We hope the program we offer suits your child’s individuality and your family’s needs.
