children’s community program
The children’s community fosters self respect, independence, understanding of the world and respect for others and the environment. Children cook, clean, garden, dress oneself, wash hands, set the table, wash the dishes, which helps them gain self esteem and respect for the environment and aids in the refinement of movement by developing gross and fine motor skills.
Through simple, imitative tasks, young children will gain a sense of independence as their brains become increasingly adept. Between a child’s first and second birthdays, vocabulary quadruples. This period of language development is called a “sensitive period,” where learning verbal skills are paramount in a child’s life.
