My Students

My classroom is a full day program with a half day PreK curriculum. We meet the needs of Colorado Preschool Program, Special needs, and tuition children. We are in a public school serving needs of our community.

Our core beliefs and values are:

We believe in facilitating learning through play, building relationships, family partnerships, nurturing every child, maintaining safe learning environments, developing character skills, honoring the culture, languages and values of our families, being reflective of the communities in which we live.

My Project

All kids love to play in water, sand or other stimulating substances. Our sensory table has been played with long and hard and finally has seen the end. I am requesting a Full Size Deluxe Sand or Water Play Table with Top.

From birth to early childhood, children use their five senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them.

It’s an important part of early childhood development, and providing opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they explore their world through ‘sensory play’ is crucial to brain development.

Learning through sensory exploration comes naturally to babies and young children, which makes sense when you consider that the skills they’ll come to rely on to build an understanding of objects, spaces, people and interactions are yet to be fully developed.
