Triangle play is a playgroup class that emphasizes the importance of children's learning activities in interaction with three influences: parents (or caregivers), teachers, and a beautifully prepared environment.
Within the context of the Reggio inspiration as a nature school we study the “100 languages of children”. For example, we explore the language of color, the language of plants, the language of water, or the language of frogs and insects. In addition to these, we layer the study of the French language.
The fall quarter begins September 4th 2019
Hours: 8:30 am to 10:30 am or 10:30 to 12:30 pm
Day: You may choose Wednesdays or Fridays (or sign-up for both!)
Ages: about 1 to 5 years old with a parent or other significant adult in small groups of 10 children.
Tuition: $380 per child per quarter. It includes an experience of cooking snack together.
For this coming fall, we have an amazing treat for you. We are planning on hosting Triangle Play on a farm very close by in Bells Bend on Pecan Valley Road!
There will be so much to learn indoors and outdoors as we explore labs and ateliers, feed goats and chickens, do yoga, grow a garden, cook, and take nature walks in the forest!
In addition to studying ecological interactions with wild plants and animals, we will explore farming and sustainability. We will create a series of activities around familiar concepts while using objects and actions to learn vocabulary, greetings, and counting. As we play games, sing songs, read books, and explore materials, arts, and science we develop a rich emergent curriculum together.
We use Cecile Pachelli’s French in the Park method to engage children on multiple sensorial levels and to combine comprehension and expression to learn French. The approach is very effective by focusing on simple well defined words and songs to build memorization. Children and adults alike enjoy the lessons and acquire proficiency that scaffolds the building of sentences. Have a look at some French lessons and songs that we use during assembly with the link below.
