To teachers everywhere – here is what an excellent school looks like. This is how four-year-olds learn best. Hands on, opened ended activities, time to problem solve, independent thinking, emergent curriculum. I love this school!
We are almost two weeks into our latest adventure at WT North Pre-K. This class of small scientists has been flowing right into the new routines. We’ve been slowly introducing materials and tools, allowing the children to become comfortable with the use and care of each before adding something new. As they play in this novel setting, we’ve had many opportunities to observe and wonder along with them.

I can easily see why you love this post, Jennie. It could easily be you, in a different school. Inspirational creative teaching indeed. 🙂

Yes, I could be right there. Thank you, Pete!
It sounds like such a wonderful environment for children. Thanks for sharing, Jennie. Hugs on the wing!
Glad you enjoyed it, Teagan. Hugs!
I can’t wait to get started on loose parts with my students. Just need them to be able to listen to some simple instructions first!
I know!!! 😀
Fabulous and inspirational!!
Thank you, Opher. 😀
It’s a creative learning in an open environment where the children can easily learn as much as finding new experiences, it’s truly wonderful! 💖Have a blessed weekend!
Well said, Mehreen. Thank you!
I love this sort of inspiration. Kids are always curious. This feeds that, supports it. Wonderful, Jennie.
Thank you, Jacqui! Feeding and supporting the curiosity fuels a child’s learning and passion.
this reminds me so much of montessori.
I’d does! It’s a fabulous school in PA. This is one of the first blogs followed. 🙂
Thank you for the very nice information. Own experiences are always the best. Feeling with the own hands gives a unforgetable impression. Michael
Well said, Michael!
