Each day is a different adventure and children never know what they are going to find. Whether it’s observing chicks hatch or pupae turn into butterflies, or whether they get to squeeze goopy oobleck in their hands, sew, find treasure, or construct aqueducts, preschool life is a constant surprise.
There is generally a mixture of indoor and outdoor play, with the day beginning outside. On nicer days, classes are held entirely out of doors.
The high ratio of adults to children means that there is always adult supervision (3’s class: 1:5; 4’s class: 1:6). Teachers and parents are there to ensure the children’s safety and emotional security, assist them in their chosen activity, and make sure that they are supported in every possible way.
Children are encouraged to be independent and make their own decisions. Children are never told what they should play with – they choose from what has been unveiled for the day. They bring their own snacks to school and are encouraged to eat when they feel hungry. They can get as messy and dirty as they want – which is why they come dressed in “play clothes” and always have a full change of clothing on site 🙂
LVPPP is a magical place for three to five-year-olds. It is where they will learn to love school and where you will learn to be involved and support them in their school life.
