                  Everything a child does is a learning experience.  We will introduce them to as many different materials and hands-on learning opportunities as possible in order to support their individualized learning and developmental goals.  We will PAINT, SING, DANCE , ROLL AROUND, WRITE, LISTEN TO STORIES, PLAY WITH PLAY DOUGH, BUILD WITH BLOCKS, CREATE MANY BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART, and MUCH, MUCH MORE.  While we are doing all of this, we will be working on the social skills of cooperating in a group, listening, following directions, and solving problems.
