Reaching the “Whole Child”: Putting the Pieces Back Together

Nurturing

There are many parts to young children including learning, language, social, physical, and emotional development. Each aspect is important, but it is only when they are integrated, in meaningful learning experiences, that children’s maximum development can occur.

Investigate how learning can occur throughout the day in play, transitions, centers, and group times. Discover how art, music, and creative drama can reach parts of the child’s creativity that are often neglected. Find how the life skills, needed for the 21st century, can be nurtured in interesting, exciting, and personally meaningful ways.

Gain ideas that will help you create a classroom for young children that will inspire their learning in holistic ways.
