Our Classrooms

Wonder Room

The Wonder Room is our two year old classroom. We limit our two-year old classroom to 12 students.  The Wonder room has a lead teacher, Michelle Lambrecht; an Assistant Teacher, Jodi Hidalgo and a dedicated Floater.  Our ratio of teacher to students for this classroom is 1:4.

Wonder Room Curriculum:

The Wonder Room is organized into centers.  These centers include: Reading, Writing, Science, Math/Manipulatives, Block, Dramatic Play and Open Art.  The materials in the center rotate depending upon the theme the class is talking about.  The materials in the classroom also reflect the children themselves.  The classroom is decorated by their artwork and their creations.

The two-year old class works hard on their social and emotional skills with learning to cooperatively play with one another.  They work on their manners and a lot of self-help skills including toilet training.  They talk a lot about being friends and what it means to be a kind friend.  During this year, we see attention spans and vocabulary increasing.

The preschool classroom is a flurry of activity.  Songs, letters, numbers, shapes and scissors are all a part of this busy year.  Children are challenged where they are at and social skills begin to blossom.  Working together is a theme for this year as they learn to be good citizens in their class.

Imagine Room Schedule:
After Chapel or Silly Stories, the Imagine Room starts their day with Snack.  After Snack, they go outside to the playground.  After outdoor time, they have Circle Time.  Circle time usually consists of a story, songs and large group work on math, literacy and social skills.  Open Centers follow Circle.  During this time, the children rotate through the centers which are based upon the theme they are talking about that week.  The teachers work individually with each student and modify the activity to the level the student is at.  Open Centers last a majority of the student’s morning.  Lunch follows Centers.  Handwashing and Bathroom Breaks are appropriately placed throughout the morning.

Explore Room

The Explore Room is our PreK Classroom.  We limit our PreK classroom to 16 students.  Our lead teacher in the Explore Classroom is Rebecca Morris.  The Assistant is Rebecca Carreras and a floater helps the classroom as well.  That brings the ratio to just over 1 Teacher for every 5 students.

This year we prepare the students for that all-important jump into Kindergarten.  We work on independence in self-help skills, and all the things they will need to make this transition a successful one.  As the oldest children in the school, they develop a leadership role.  It is exciting to see how much knowledge they acquire in just one short year.
