Got to visit yet another school today. I was able to go to CREATE and Learning Paths School in Merville and got to observe a class being run by their school head/directress Teacher Tin Canon.
Thanks to Randy and Ting Bello who set up this visit for me :).
In front of the school.
Sandbox with lots of sand toys.
Cubbies with boxes with their belongings.
I have never seen a mat like this before. It rolls out and the kids can crawl or walk on it. Sounds fun for sensory integration activities.
Garage converted into an outdoor play area.
The objective is to match a little figure/toy to the corresponding label and learning to walk on the balance beam at the same time.
From a better angle.
In the classroom.
Circle area and materials on the side.
Pictures on the bathroom door.
Indoor play area
Outdoor easels behind the school
A mixture of flour, water and paint = fun! What I've learned as a preschool teacher is that some of the best activities are the simplest and ones involving the cheapest materials around :).
CREATE has classes for Toddlers (1.6 - 2.5) up to Prep (5.6 to 6.1), as well as Tutorial, intervention and homeschool programs for preschool up to high school students.
