Here at Little Friends Enrichment Program the children’s minds are constantly stimulated. The school is a structured place which excels in academics. The low student/teacher ratio enhances the one-on-one help given to each and every child daily allowing the children to grow one day at a time.
Listening is important for learning and for understanding other people. As the teachers listen to the children in an accepting and nurturing manner, children learn to listen to each other and, hopefully, to themselves. By learning to listen they learn about their feelings and the complexity of social interactions. By learning to first listen and question with acceptance they can then work on developing a critical capacity to challenge what is said and evaluate the information they receive.
Teachers are constantly talking with the children about their play, providing a language rich environment. All centers are labeled with pictures and words. As the children mature, they move from the concrete, to pictures, to letter and word recognition. There are writing materials in many of the learning centers where children take their first steps in learning to write.
