"Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.."
Field trips provide a fantastic way to reinforce a child’s learning experience. When two- year-olds are introduced to animal sounds, a visit to a petting zoo can add a powerful dimension to the overall learning process. Ancient Egypt comes alive for a Pre-Kindergarten child who actually stands before The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur (shown above) or touches a statue of Isis and Osiris.
However, as wonderful as field trips may be, many parents have serious misgivings about their children leaving the school’s premises for any purpose. The Children’s Studio solves this dilemma by suggesting that parents plan “family field trips” in coordination with the school’s curriculum. Parents are encouraged to document these experiences with photos. The photos are then brought into school and eventually turned into field-trip books. In this way, learning, discovery, adventure, school, and home are tied together in a significant way.
Over a 9-year period, our 3 sons attended the Children's Studio. They thrived and loved it there! Dr. Jane Carr and her team provide a high-quality, stimulating, creative, age-appropriate learning environment. The curriculum prepares children well for Kindergarten, providing them with the knowledge base and confidence to succeed. Attention to health and safety is always a priority. As busy working parents, we never worried about the boys and felt fortunate to have such a wonderful place for them to learn and grow.
