My Students

We are a new school family at Chillicothe Early Learning Center consolidating district preschool and daycare into one building. Our family includes three half-day three-year-old blended preschool classrooms; early intervention with peer models, student-led, constructive play, preschool classrooms. Five half-day preK classrooms, all inclusive with many social-emotional needs to be met before moving on to Kindergarten. An infant toddler room with capacity of four students, ages 0-35 months who are usually children of teenage mothers.

My Early Childhood Professions classes from the Grand River Technical are also a big part of this family and use all classrooms as "lab".

Our students share space in a common area, which we call, "The Forest". During arrival and departure times, students and teachers use this area to allow children to continue to play rather than sit in waiting lines. The area is also used as a "break out" space to take the class for a learning experience. The Early Childhood Professions class take care of the area by cleaning, planning open-ended play experiences, and work with children during play in small groups.

My Project

Building blocks for the brain is exactly that. Our team inspires students to learn through play and blocks allow endless opportunities to promote numerous skills. We plan to share these blocks in "The Forest" to stimulate students at transition times.

Block play requires fine and gross motor skills.

Blocks enhance children’s problem-solving abilities, mathematics skills, and language and literacy abilities. And constructing “creations” builds self-esteem and feelings of success. Blocks help children learn to take turns and share materials, develop new friendships, become self-reliant, increase attention span, cooperate with others, and develop self-esteem.Blocks offer many ways for young dual language learners to explore, express themselves, and demonstrate what they are learning across languages.
