Near the end of the school year in June, the children become more connected with nature and with one another as they are ready to finish their school year strong.  And throughout this past year, teachers have assisted children in their physical, cognitive, and social/emotional development.

First, let’s see how they maximize their learning through Olympics Day Competition!

It is a nice weather to do our Olympics Day competition.

Dayspring children also get to spend a lot of time in nature, being connected with the earth, air, and water.

Gardening is a great way for children to learn how to sow and reap fruits and plants.

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles!  Dayspring children get to blow bubbles in fields and play in the playground to increase their concentration and coordination skills.

Before school year is officially over, Dayspring children learn how to properly say good bye to their classmates.

In line time, Directress and children talk about the importance of going through beginning, middle, and end.  They do a song with a triangle to emphasize the concepts.
