We have a fantastic group of 20 students that I teach in the Pittsburgh community. They all receive reduced-price or free meals. Their ages are 3, 4, and 5 years old. They are an energetic, inquisitive, and delightful group. They learn through play and enjoy exploring their environment to make new discoveries. Our goal is to equip children with the educational tools and social skills necessary for a seamless transition to kindergarten and beyond. We provide children, age birth to five, with comprehensive programming designed to reinforce and respond to the unique strengths of each child individually.
Supportive learning environments help stimulate social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth in children.
We cultivate relationships with families to build bonds and encourage and support parent engagement and participation in program activities to help strengthen the family unit. Community partnerships are formed to establish a core network of support services and resources to children and families.
Young children learn by imagining and doing. The process of pretending builds skills in many essential developmental areas such as social emotional skills, thinking skills, language skills, nurturing and imagination.
Our students love to pretend to be a Mommy and Daddy and help out with the babies.
Unfortunately our babies are very old, do not have clothes and they do not have a place to put them such as a changing table, or a high chair. Our students would love the chance to play with their babies putting them on a changing table, feeding them at the highchair or even just sitting and giving them a bottle.
