During their time in the Trustworthy Turtles classroom, each child is given the opportunity of learning in a preschool rich environment. This experience consists of a morning circle time with calendar and our weekly theme, learning area activities centered around art, math, and science skills, with a continued focus on Zoophonics. Children will now be introduced to the beginning stages of Handwriting Without Tears, designed to encourage and develop each child’s handwriting skills.
