What makes the Bach room unique from other programs?
Our classroom operates on a reduced ratio for the majority of the day. State licensing requires us to maintain a ratio of 1 teacher per 8 students. We reduce ratios for the majority of the day by adding an additional teacher . Lower ratios allow our teachers more time to get down on floor and play with the children and have conversations with them.
We guide their learning through play and lots of conversations with the children. Lesson plans are created by the lead teacher utilizing a specific theme each week. Children’s needs are taken into consideration when creating lesson plans for the children in our care. We want them to grow intellectually as well as emotionally.
Children participate in 30 minutes of Creative Movement program each day. Plus, children get an additional 45 minutes of gross motor play outside or in our indoor gym both in the morning and afternoon.
Children go on field trips outside of the center at least once a month. Often, they go twice a month.
Our classroom has lots of large windows that are equipped with window guards to prevent injury from window falls.
Children in this classroom are working on name recognition, letter recognition, number recognition, colors and shapes.
Children in this classroom are also learning to play with other children in cooperative play. With that, we are working on building a lot of social and emotional skills.
