Blue Pups

The Blue Pups Room.
Staff:

Cathryn Britcher 
Laci Wimer

The blue puppy room is always bustling with activity!  The children become more independent, and the staff work to encourage budding self-help and social skills while providing nurturing care.  Our staff encourages children to learn through many different types of hands-on activities. We like to use a variety of art mediums, sensory items, and dramatic play.  The room is divided into learning centers, and the children are encouraged to explore the ever-changing toys.  We have many areas that help develop small and large motor skills.  The staff also help the children build on their developing language skills through books, songs, and everyday conversations.  Our curriculum is theme-based and varied in order to engage all of the children in the room.
