To celebrate NAEYC's Week of the Young Child, the Clownfish tried freeze dried strawberries for Tasty Tuesday and voted on whether or not they liked the taste. This activity went hand in hand with their space curriculum this month as they got to try this yummy type of astronaut food!

What is the Pyramid Model? The Pyramid Model is a framework for supporting the social and emotional development of our children. The goal of the Pyramid Model is to create an environment where every child feels good about coming to school. This is accomplished by designing classrooms that promote engagement in learning and by building positive relationships among children, families, and staff. In our use of the Pyramid Model, our classroom staff will work together to ensure that all children understand behavior expectations, receive instruction in social skills, and those who are struggling receive individual support. The Pyramid Model illustrates that the foundation for helping children develop social and emotional skills is nurturing and responsive relationships and high quality environments. The middle of the Pyramid, teaching of social and emotional skills, is provided to all children with some children receiving additional teaching and support. The top of the Pyramid shows that a few children will need the foundation, the middle AND individualized intervention to address challenging behavior. To use the Pyramid Model, our program established a leadership team that will provide ongoing support to our staff and families. Our leadership team looks forward to sharing some of the important work we are doing, including teaching program- wide expectations, partnering with families, training staff in teaching strategies, providing classroom coaching to help teachers implement, and using data for decision-making. Stay tuned for ongoing updates about the Pyramid Model in our program!

Music stimulates various aspects of child development and prepares them for school by enhancing intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy skills. It promotes synergy between the body and mind. Early exposure to music aids children in grasping the sounds and meanings of words. Additionally, dancing to music fosters motor skill development and encourages self-expression. Be sure to join us in the indoor playspace during our Night of the Arts event tomorrow for some music and dancing!

“Every time we teach a child something, we keep him from inventing it himself. On the other hand, that which we allow him to discover for himself will remain with him visible for the rest of his life.” — Jean Piaget

In the prep for our Night of the Arts event coming up next week, many of the children are learning about Vincent Van Goh. Did you know... Despite Vincent van Gogh’s fame today, he never achieved professional success during his lifetime. He sold only one painting while alive, seven months prior to his death, for a mere 400 francs.
