Giraffe Room

Giraffe Room

The Giraffe Room at Little Leo's is specifically designed to foster a wide range of cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development in 3-4-year-old children. This room is a dynamic and engaging environment where children are encouraged to explore, discover, and learn through a variety of carefully planned activities and experiences including our All-Inclusive Activies

Children in the Giraffe Room learn the importance of sharing, taking turns, and collaborating with their peers. They engage in group activities, games, and discussions that promote positive social interactions. Educators help children identify and manage their emotions, teaching them essential skills like empathy, conflict resolution, and self-control. Children are encouraged to make choices and take responsibility for their actions, helping them develop a sense of independence and self-confidence.

The Giraffe Room places a strong emphasis on language development. Children engage in daily conversations, storytelling, and vocabulary-building activities. They also learn pre-reading and pre-writing skills through exposure to letters, sounds, and age-appropriate books. Basic math concepts such as counting, sorting, patterns, and shapes are introduced through hands-on activities and games. Children are encouraged to solve puzzles and engage in critical thinking activities.Through simple science experiments and nature exploration, children develop a sense of curiosity and a foundation in scientific thinking. They observe, ask questions, and make predictions about the world around them.

Children have access to various art materials to express themselves through drawing, painting, sculpting, and crafting. This fosters creativity and fine motor skill development. Dancing, singing, and playing musical instruments promote rhythm, coordination, and an appreciation for music and movement (All-Inclusive Activity). Lastly, we encourage imaginative play with costumes, props, and role-playing scenarios.

Indoor and outdoor play activities, such as climbing, running, jumping, and balance exercises, help children develop their gross motor skills and coordination. Through activities like cutting, coloring, and manipulating small objects, children refine their fine motor skills, preparing them for tasks like writing and self-care.

 Children are exposed to a print-rich environment with age-appropriate books. They learn about letters, sounds, and basic phonics. Hands-on math activities such as cooking (All-Inclusive Activity) introduces concepts like counting, measurement, and basic number sense.
