The development of reading, writing and speaking are strongly encouraged. For reading the child develops the association of letters and sounds with materials such as sandpaper letters and sound jars, eventually moving toward blending sounds with the moveable alphabet.
For writing the child learns fine motor skills and outlining with work such as tracing insets and the sandpaper letters. Each child has his/her own name card that they can use to help guide their writing until they can do it on their own. The child eventually works toward parts of speech and building sentences.
Basic science concepts are available through naming, organizing and classifying plants, animals & land forms.
