Why Kiddy's Nook?
At Kiddy’s Nook we take pride in providing a rich classroom environment with staff that are respectful and caring. We use a variety of strategies for assessment to ensure that learning is taking place and adjust the curriculum and environment to meet the individual needs of students.
Rich Classroom Environment
The classroom environment is the most important source for learning is organized and used in ways that make learning positive, engaging, active, and exciting. Children’s learning and work are the focus of the classroom. Our classrooms are literacy rich with reading and writing incorporated throughout.
Respectful, Caring Relationships
Building strong caring relationships are core to student success. Teachers and children build such relationships through their daily interactions. Teachers get to know each child and encourage the development of learning dispositions.
Children’s development is formally and informally observed through assessment, portfolios, student work samples and various other means. At the same time, teachers reflect on what happens each day in the classroom, e.g. What worked? What didn’t work? and What proved engaging for children?
