Work Time, aka Choice Time, is the heart of our preschool program. The children decide what they are going to do, where they are going to work, and whether they are going to work with others or work alone.
While some children enjoy playing collaboratively in a group; making plans, giving roles and directing play; others may choose to play with just one or two friends, or even just by themselves. Children are encouraged to explore materials and ideas and independently solve problems as they carry out their intentions. The children feel ownership of the classroom and confidence to use their imagination and try out new ideas.
