Jungle Jr Preschool
The Junior Preschool Room focuses on:
- building onto the skills learned in the toddler
- helping the child to achieve more independence
- developing fine motor skills
- sensory experiences
- gross motor skills
- art and music
Licensing states that "preschoolers, 30 months (2.5years) of age until 3 years of age is a 1 staff : 8 children ratio"; however we have found that a lower ratio of 1 staff : 6 children is more beneficial. This class room is a max of 12 children.
We have group time daily going over our theme of the week: reading a story, singing songs, and working on shape/color recognition; as well as the letter of the week. The children enjoy a variety of different toys, games, and activities planned out by their teacher. Center areas in the classroom provide the opportunity to practice cooking, driving cars, and being builders.
