THE ENVIRONMENT

At Voyagers’, the environment is yet another teacher. While in school, children are free to express themselves in many ways. They gain a deep understanding of the materials in their classroom and in the world around them. They are encouraged to look at and use materials in a variety of ways and participate in long-term projects designed to inspire them to view a subject from many angles.

Our classroom is designed to be aesthetically pleasing and engaging. Children are encouraged to further their understanding of the world in a setting that supports the interaction and engagement of young children with their environment.

It is our goal at Voyagers’ to provide environments and experiences for children that inspire the exploration of ideas, investigation, and satisfying interactions with others in play.

LEARNING

Children learn best through a multi-sensory, project-based approach. At Voyagers’, children are encouraged to touch, see, hear, move, speak, and listen. They construct their learning of language, literacy, math, creative arts, science and global studies through deep and unconstrained exploration provoked by the teacher and classmates.

Through active, multi-sensory involvement, memories are rich and learning is meaningful.

These children are well prepared to take on the challenge of the work they will encounter in our Kindergarten through Second-Grade classroom.

PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS

Voyagers’ uses an online portfolio supported by Seesaw. This portfolio is a simple way for teachers to record, document, and share what is happening in the classroom daily.

Through this portfolio parents discover:

  • Experienced and responsive teachers who focus on each child.
  • A flexible and responsive environment designed to give young voyagers’ the chance to move freely and explore their world.
  • A fenced in yard with climbing areas, a mud kitchen, a sound garden, an organic garden and plenty of places to discover bugs, flowers, and frogs
  • Soft seating in our book nook
  • Sand/water tables for early sensory development
  • Instruments, art supplies, magnifying glasses, bug boxes, blocks, trains, trucks, multicultural dolls, and manipulatives for rich language and social development.
  • An extensive picture book library.
  • A loft for seeing the space from a different vantage point

Your child’s portfolio will move with him/her through each year of schooling at Voyagers’ Community School.
