SOCIAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT
The Kindergarten Classroom is a social environment where children can be seen playing and learning together. Children play with groups of friends at learning centers and activities. Play is an important part of our Kindergarten program, with children initiating and sustaining play with peers. Each day we introduce and practice concepts as outlined in the M. Kids Curriculum in a large group setting. Children are encouraged to participate during games and activities during circle times every day. Social skills that are beneficial include co-operation, sharing, listening, turn taking and following classroom rules.
