My Students

Our students come to school eager to learn and get their day started. They enjoy the various activities and learning experiences throughout the day. They come to school each day with their minds set on learning new tasks!

Our children are curious learners and want to experience everything.

Our Pre-K students are curious, creative, and enthusiastic learners. The class community that we have built with our students gives them the confidence that they need to explore and want to learn new things.

My Project

Exploring with balance is beneficial to children because it helps them develop body control. When our Pre-K students learn to balance they are learning how to do a task fluidly. They practice how to center their bodies so that they can sit upright, walk without stumbling, and participate in daily activities. The balance builder activity set and a balance beam assist our students in learning how to react to sudden changes of direction and assist with other skills they are building.

When children have good balance and coordination, they limit the risk of injuries due to falling and improper balance.

Balancing will help children with body awareness, self regulation, muscular strength, attention and concentration, and sensory processing.
