Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our children are the hope of the future. We need to nurture them carefully. Young children are eager to learn and are naturally curious about the world around them. Every child, however, learns in a different way and at a different pace. We believe children learn best by doing. At Abigail Bottoms we provide them with a loving, caring environment where it is safe to take risks, to make mistakes and to discover.
In our classrooms children will find organization, guidelines, movement, choice, support, help from peers, computers, strategy lessons, an interactive reading/writing environment, small groups, large groups and individual work. Structure is provided, but there is freedom within that structure. We believe this approach to learning meets the needs of all the different types of learners.
When you teach a child you are giving them a kind of magic - a gift that will enrich them for the rest of their lives."

A Typical Day

"Three Year Old Program
Circle Time - helps to develop listening and language skills.
Snack Time - provides an opportunity to practice their language skills by socializing with their classmates.
Free Play - encourages children to move from parallel play to cooperative play.
Craft Time and Academic Time - provide us an opportunity to teach the children shapes, numbers, and colors. We start introducing the letters of the alphabet and focus on letter sound and recognition. The children will also be cutting with scissors which will help strengthen their fine motor skills.
