How do you handle problem solving?
Children in the blue room have big feelings and are learning how to express those feelings while trying to regulate how they handle conflict with their peers. By providing a supportive environment and teaching our toddlers to handle conflict with others, they are learning important social skills. At Bemis Farms we use Highscope’s six steps to solving conflicts throughout their day. Our teaching team supports toddlers as they learn the steps and help them learn important communication skills. These are skills to help them grow and develop as good communicators and to care about others.
What does Bemis provide?
You can cross “remember to bring diapers, wipes, sunscreen and meals” off your list! These will be provided, so you have one less thing to worry about. We serve breakfast, lunch, and two snacks daily to give your child the fuel they need to keep them actively learning and playing throughout the day.
Will there be an opportunity for my child to go outside?
Bemis Farms is proud to offer an expansive, natural outdoor environment and separate age appropriate playgrounds. Your child will have plenty of opportunities to explore nature, exercise and play games in the fresh air daily. Children will enjoy physical, noisy, and vigorous play. There are many benefits to playing outdoors such as: developing large and fine motor skills, social skills, and healthy risk taking.
* See our outdoor learning environment page for more benefits.
How do you keep parents up to date on their child’s day?
Wondering what your child has been up to all day? Thanks to the Brightwheel app, you can check in on your child’s activities, easily communicate with their teachers, browse photos, and download daily progress reports.
Why do kids play messy?
Getting messy is an essential part of children’s early childhood development. Playing in the mud or jumping in rain puddles is one of the favorite things children do at Bemis Farms. A few things that messy play provides are: hands-on learning experiences, the freedom to be creative, it enhances children’s sensory development and supports kinesthetic/tactile learning.
Is there an opportunity to discuss my child’s progress?
In addition to the information provided through Brightwheel, there are also two opportunities during the year where you are able to sign up for parent teacher conferences. Additional conferences throughout the year may be provided upon request.
