Our Maples classroom is located in our Main Building and caters to ages two to three years old. The Maples classroom introduces a more structured classroom and begins following daily classroom routines like morning meeting. Through cooperative play, each activity begins to develop their attention span that is used in the older classrooms. Teachers introduce and practice recognizing each child's own emotional and physical needs along with beginning to identify their own emotions and their friends emotions. Language to express their own needs, develop manners, and understand the proper use of materials is initiated and practiced. More complex gross motor skills and methods to become more independent, like potty training, are introduced.
Ms. Mellisa and Ms. Tristan love helping our Maples students gain independence!
