Connecticut Friends Preschool at Wilton Preschool Fair with School Tours Afterwards
February 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pmFree
Come learn about Connecticut Friends Preschool’s Reggio-inspired, play-based curriculum that gently weaves the Quaker Values of SPICES (Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality & Stewardship) into the classroom dynamic at the Wilton Preschool Fair on February 23rd from 10am to 12pm at the Wilton Library. Tours of the newly renovated classrooms and nature-filled 5 acre campus will be offered at the school from 12:30 to 1:30 following the fair!
At CFS, Children develop problem solving skills, independence, confidence, empathy and a love of learning while also forming a meaningful connection to nature on our tree-filled, 5-acre campus which includes a beautiful playground under a canopy of trees and an impressive garden. The classrooms are set up with various developmentally enriching “Centers” around the room and enhanced with inviting and interesting provocations that our experienced teachers set out for our curious and inquiring Friends to discover each day. In addition to outside time, snack time, and story time children are able to immerse themselves as they wish in this classroom setting. There are learning-through-play opportunities abound in the Block Center, Writing Center, Dramatic Play Center, the Library, Manipulatives, Sensory Table, Parts of Things, the Science Center and Art. Emotional learning is also emphasized as children learn to honor their feelings, peacefully navigate conflict, and to respect and value others. Each day also includes practice in mindfulness.
