Learning Celebration for Active Minds
Posted on 12/18/2015
We at Community Resources for Children are proud to announce that three Active Minds classes recently finished this fall semester. The classes concluded with a Learning Celebration in which each child and parent received certificates for participation. There was a 2-3 year old class from the Toy Library and Early Learning Center and a 3-4 year class each from Shearer and Phillips Elementary Schools. Every semester classes vary in ethnicity, primary language and gender. Last semester’s classes served a total of 30 children between the ages of 2 and 4, with 46% of those children being second language learners. For the Active Minds teachers, it is a privilege to work with the families in our community, and they look forward to spring enrollment.
Active Minds is a bilingual, play-based program designed for children between the ages of two to four and their parents. The primary goal of the program is to model strategies for parents, who are their child’s first and most important teachers, empowering them to extend learning opportunities at home. Teachers encourage natural exploration and learning guided by the child’s interest. Active Minds provides parents with additional resources that can be utilized and expanded at home to foster their children’s development.
