Indoor Activities

Children have an opportunity to participate in a variety of activities in small and large group settings:

Circle Time: an opportunity for children to experience being part of a community, saying “hello,” and sharing. Circle time will be adapted to meet the needs of each age group. Circle time will offer a balance of activities: creative movement, music, games, stories, language arts, etc.

Story Time: an opportunity for children to use their imaginations and learn through literature. Stories can be related to the curriculum and the seasons. A child’s favorite book may be brought in from home. Children will be involved and will actively participate by asking questions, answering questions, predicting what will happen next, etc.

Free Activity Time: an opportunity for children to choose an activity and a group of children with whom they desire to play. Teachers will have a variety of activities available for children from which they can choose. Children will also have the opportunity to participate in a group activity or work individually.

Large/Small Group Time: an opportunity for children to be in a structured activity planned by the teacher. Group activities vary from a hands-on lesson, science experiment, art activity, game, or song, etc.

Small Group/Learning Centers: an opportunity for children to explore and be challenged in different areas through discovery and hands-on activities. Each center and small group activity should meet the developmental needs of each child.

Indoor/Outdoor Play

Children learn by doing. This includes running, climbing, hanging and tumbling. Optimal intellectual growth occurs simultaneously with physical growth and development.

Park Street Kids places a high priority on this developmental need by taking children outside and utilizing the gym within the church. The gym will be used for running, tumbling, climbing, throwing and strengthening other large motor development.
