Our 4-Day class is usually a mix of first-time students and children who attended Park West the previous year. Many are familiar with school routines and procedures, have experienced group interactions, and may have used sign-up lists for turns with materials.

Our teachers build upon this familiarity by providing and encouraging more complex play scenarios and meaningful social interactions to help students make new connections, discoveries, and relationships. They must use some of these skills to contribute to more complicated projects that use writing tools and art materials, or collaborate to create a play scenario like a castle or spaceship in the playhouse. Teachers also incorporate classroom calendars into the daily routine and may employ voting to make group decisions.

Quotes from Our Park West Family
