Dressed in my rain suit, and with a backpack full of goodies, I am ready for the day.
I say goodbye to my mom and sister and I am off to play.
Here’s a glimpse of my day.
Editor’s note: Brain science has show us that children learn best through play, and by choosing their own adventure. We also know that children thrive when they have a dependable routine. Each Tiny Trees classroom follows the HighScope curriculum, which provides a child with the freedom to choose their own adventure while providing a structure for the days activities.
I follow my friend along the balance log.
Where we can see our class at play.
I check out the musical instruments.
But decide I would rather draw a map.
This is my school. Full of wonder, opportunity, and adventure.
