The Grove classrooms are for children 4-6 and are taught by a team of Speech-Language Pathologists. In this class, we strive to develop the whole child and prepare them for his/her upcoming years in school. We focus on social skills and strategies that every child needs to function in a school setting. Children will engage in sensory, fine motor, academics, structured and child directed playtime. We address concepts including emotions, cooperation, teamwork, sharing, leading, following, speaking in front of a group and carrying on a conversation with peers. This class is perfect for a child that needs some extra assistance learning skills that make a classroom dynamic more manageable and enjoyable.
This class is for children ages 3-4 years old and focuses on the development of speech and language skills, prewriting/writing skills, general school routines and socialization with peers. This multisensory class uses all a child’s sensory systems(vision, hearing, tactile, taste and body awareness) to explore and learn about the environment. This fun and energetic class will get your child excited about school and coming to see friends!
This class is for children ages 20 months to 3 years old. Children in this class may still be mastering some of his/her gross motor skills (walking, jumping, climbing, running) as well as how to sit and attend to instruction. This class is routine based with the flexibility for child guided play. Speech, language and early cognitive development are main focuses of this class. New verbal vocabulary, simple signs and pictures systems are all modes of communication in this class. Look out parents….you may not be able to slow them down and keep them quiet after this class!
