Our Lil’ Tigers learn best at play. Our children’s day is full of self-directed play in multi-themed centers, which focus on recognition of numbers, letters, and review of shapes and colors. Our Lil’ Tigers teachers help each child understand the sounds of letters, and prepare them for reading sight words. A combination of literacy and language along with ZooPhonics® keeps our Lil’ Tigers minds’ busy.
Each week our children participate in multiple elective classes exclusive to Giving Tree. These classes take place outside of our classroom in a designated area, and include: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematic activities. Mr. Music © and his group of talented musicians also come once a week for a specially tailored music class.
Lil’ Tigers also have opportunities to explore outside their classroom by participating in our weekly S.T.E.A.M. enrichment program, as well as a weekly Spanish class. Our Lil’ Tigers are also eligible to participate in Giving Tree’s elective classes, such as Playball and N-Zone Sports. Outside time takes place on several outside playgrounds as well as a covered side patio which allows our Lil’ Tigers to get their feet moving and continue to master their large gross motor skills.
