The Jungle Room

The Jungle Room is very busy with 10 Pre-K children . We are busy learning about ourselves as we prepare for the exciting world outside of our center. We are a very active group on the go exploring our community. Our classroom is child led, with choices of which museums/ parks or what/where we want to explore for the day. Through choices in the classroom, we have time to build cities, gain friends, make families all while we learn reading, writing and arithmetic. We are learning about ourselves and how to communicate with our peers and our teachers. Our teachers guide us in working with groups so that we will be successful when we go to kindergarten. Our Jungle Room is led by Teacher Cathy who joined us in 2016. She is joined by Teacher Luis who is here 6:45 - 2:45. We also have teacher Mykelle who float between the Jungle room and the Dragonfly room for added support.
