Dr. Seuss Week 2018: Read With Us!
MPC celebrates Read Across America with a fun filled week of Dr. Seuss. Children enjoyed snacks such as "pink ink" and fruit kabobs with strawberries and bananas. Staff dressed up daily as various Dr. Seuss characters and enjoyed a Green Eggs and Ham breakfast. Families have participated by coming in to read in their child's classrooms. Each classroom decorated their door based on a Dr. Seuss book.
We believe that every child coming into our Head Start program is unique in terms of cultural heritage, life experiences and readiness for school.
Learning is Child's Play
We believe children learn best in a program that provides real opportunities to select and work with interesting materials and allow for
Children are encouraged to engage in different types of play throughout the day.
- Dramatic play - pretending role-play
- Exploratory play - observing and experimenting
- Constructive play - designing and building
Children at play are actively involved in:
- Learning to use language in new ways when interacting with others.
- Exploring, and solving problems using higher order thinking skills
- Developing their muscles and coordination.
A partnership between home and school is so important. It provides a bridge that fosters understanding and knowledge about each child.
