THINK, PLAY, QUESTION, AND GROW CT Preschoolers learning together!


If you have ever watched a young child’s eyes widen in amazement or witnessed that proud smile when they have accomplished a new task, then you understand the true reward of teaching children.  Cedar Trails Preschool Teachers have engaged their student in learning games and activities designed to build their curiosity and love for learning.  Music and Movement Activities provide opportunities to introduce new terms, directions, and understand places and roles.
Predictable pattern books like Brown Bear, Brown Bear help children learn repetitive patterns of language.
Dramatic Play supports new vocabulary and allows opportunities for children to engage in symbolic play.  Matching and Memory games provide fun interdependent ways for students to learn many math and reading concepts.  Children also learn physical gross motor concepts and skills like balance, spatial orientation, (position of body in space as well as relation to other people) and the coordination of major muscles.  Eyes wide lighting up with amazement and proud smiles will continue at Cedar Trails as students continue to think, play, question, and grow.
