The 3-6 Environments
The 3-6 class
Both classes welcome children aged 3 to 6 years old and are guided by a French speaking and an English speaking teacher, as well as an English or French speaking assistant. Because it is a time when the children are in the absorbent stage, they are free to choose, experiment and observe the available activities and materials either alone, or with an adult or another child.
Each day, emphasis is given on the learning of self respect, respect of others and of the environment. Our team takes great care of enabling children to express freely their emotions and having the appropriate tools to support them.
Upon arrival in the morning the children usually start their day by choosing a practical life, sensorial, mathematics or language activity, settling on a mat or table to work independently and at their own pace.
Before a child works on a new activity it is shown to the child by one of the teachers. This presentation is done individually upon the child’s request, or when it is the right learning cycle for the child.
Each day the children gather to share their feelings and discuss on a variety of subjects such as the date, the weather and season, and share a poem or sing a song.
The afternoon is often dedicated to workshops such as music, chess, motricity, biodanza, philosophy for children or arts and crafts.
At the end of the day the children are encouraged to do a presentation: they are able to set forth and describe an activity they particularly enjoyed during the day. This ends with the gratitude tree time, a paper tree upon which the children, as well as the teachers and assistants, may glue gratitude notes all throughout the day.
