Welcome to the Three’s Blue Room

Blue Room Newsletter

April

Hello Blue Room Families,

The focus for March was on some of the children’s favorite books.  Each developmental domain was highlighted with the introduction of each book.  We planted vegetables in the science center.

As we transition into Spring, we will be exploring books and themes that will take us outside the classroom.  We will be transplanting our vegetables from the science center to our outdoor garden this month.  The caterpillars have arrived, and they are growing fast!

We will continue to focus on the social and emotional development of our Blue Room friends along with life skills such as getting dressed, putting on shoes, buttons, and zippers.  Please take some time to practice these skills with your child at home.

Ms. Jacqueline W.

My name is Ms. Jacqueline, and I am the Blue Room Teacher.  I have been in the early childhood field for over 16 years.  I have an associate degree in Early Childhood as well as a bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Cincinnati.  My teaching philosophy regarding early childhood is that children thrive in a well-planned environment that provides a variety of open-ended sensory experiences.  They learn about themselves and their environment through meaningful engagement of their surroundings under the care and supervision of nurturing caregivers.  I am a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and I am currently pursuing my master’s degree in education.

Ms. Meredith

Ms. Meredith completed her Early Childhood Certificate at Southwestern Illinois College this past December (2018).  She recently joined the Discovery team to pursue her career in hopes of teaching the minds of children.  Ms. Meredith recently volunteered for the Special Olympics and Butterfly Dreams which is a pageant for all ages with developmental disabilities.  While she is gaining new experiences in the classroom, Ms. Meredith plans to further her education in Early Childhood Education.  She is so thrilled to be part of the Discovery team!
