Early Childhood Education
Dear families and caregivers, check in with your child's teacher directly about weekly learning activities. They are working on many amazing plans for you to try out with your preschoolers! In the coming days and weeks, your child's teacher will send you an invitation to Ready Rosie- a video library of activities to try with your child. Be on the look out for this :)
In the meantime, below are activities you can do with your preschooler that do not require internet access!
Wishing you safety and fun during this time!
3/20/20 During this crisis, we will supply families with resources for learning opportunities that promote intentional play. While there is no online equivalent to preschool, it is imperative that families make time to interact with their children daily by reading a book together, playing a board game, or simply taking a walk outside! The Early Childhood program has curated a Google presentation with resources for you and your families. This slide deck is located directly below by clicking the blue button. We will update this resource as needed and as information becomes available.
In addition, ECE Department will provide ongoing communication via Twitter @nhcsprek including daily tips and activity suggestions focusing on early literacy, math, play skills and social and emotional learning. Check in with your child’s preschool center about specific learning activities and materials accessible for families that are related to their current learning studies and curriculum.
For families interested in applying for Pre-K for next school year, please fill out this brief form and our office will be in touch with next steps.
