The first five years of life play a critical role in a child’s future health, happiness, development and learning. The sustainability of any society depends on the extent to which it provides opportunities early in life for all children to achieve their full potential. Establishing quality inclusive early learning settings requires thoughtful programming and support in a pre-school environment for all young children. This is the ideal we strive to achieve throughout all our daily activities and routines in Jasper Room. The past week has been filled with the exploration of sensory materials from Finn and Arthur creating sand dunes and caves in the sand table to Clara and Cohen experimenting with paint inside salad spinners to Kenzie and Eva creating a witches brew in the water table. Sensory experiences allows them to be creative with tangible objects and to let their imagination run wild when creating and experimenting on new tactile activities. It helps with fine motor movement through intricate movements when mixing or combining certain materials. Our Jasper friends love creating and immersing themselves in this tactile world.
A reminder that next week we will be moving our classroom to the rec room at the front of the building because we will be installing air conditioning in our room. Also we will be welcoming Marley as your new Jasper educators as Neha will be transitioning into her new role as Primrose team lead, we can’t wait to learn and play alongside Marley.
Hope you all have a fun filled weekend 🙂
