Children’s Village’s nationally accredited Preschool Program serves two hundred and eighteen children. We reach out to children of all backgrounds, including those whose circumstances — such as those living in poverty and those learning English as a second language — can undercut school success. In fact, ninety-one percent of our preschoolers are from low-income families and seventy-five percent are English language learners. Among our families, there are twenty-six different primary languages spoken, including Mandarin, Arabic, Cantonese, Polish Spanish, and Fujianese.
As a supplement to the Second Step curriculum, children will explore self-regulation through books like; "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" by Carol McCloud and "The Little Engine That Could" by Watty Piper.
Building social/emotional skills are a vital part of early learning, and these books will give children a safe place to explore these concepts.
The Second Step curriculum proactively teaches self-regulation by using puppets, games, and books to allow children to develop calming techniques and conflict resolution strategies when they are not in the midst of a crisis. Purchasing these books that are recommended by the Second Step curriculum will enhance their learning a provide another way for them to build these important skills.
