Our Red Butterfly classroom is our preschool program for beginners. This class is for our toddlers transitioning into the big Preschool. They will have many new and exciting experiences. Learning some beginning school skills sitting for circle time and table activities and expanding their vocabulary and communication skills. We will be working on our cooperative behaviors, Emotional supports, and social interactions. Of course our big goal in this classroom is building on our independent skills and Potty Training! 

Nursery Play

Curriculum:

During the school year we share the same curriculum as the Orange Butterfly Classroom slightly altered to meet age appropriate goals. The curriculum uses weekly thematic units; covering the alphabet and holidays/seasons. Children are exposed to multiple areas of learning as we follow through the curriculum; including art, math, literacy, and science. We incorporate books, songs, dramatic play, and activities to align with the weekly letter or holiday; bridging learning with play.
