Busy Little Fingers EEC

The goal of Busy Little Fingers EEC is to help children learn and develop by providing a healthy and happy environment with teachers who are capable... of encouraging the children’s curiosity, creativity and self-confidence. There are instances when the children are expected to comply and follow directions; toileting and washing hands before meals, practicing good table manners, social behavior with their teachers and peers and picking up toys. The goal is to help children develop good habits. On the other hand, when it comes to creativity, an educator knows that children learn best by exploring at their own pace. The teacher will provide the materials for several challenging choices of play, and will supervise the activities without unnecessary intervention (PIAGET METHOD). At other times, directed activities will be offered for each individual and collective project for groups. For instance, a 5 year old child may be asked to put story cards in proper sequence. Some MONTESSORI METHOD is incorporated in our teaching to promote individual challenges according to the degree of maturity of the child. Good social behavior for example is promoted by encouraging children to take turns serving their peers at the table, collecting cups, etc. In a cooperative project on a given topic, for example, “Fun at the Beach”, a long piece of paper is a spread on a table. Each child makes a contribution: pasting pictures, coloring, etc. It is a good occasion to socialize, exchange ideas, decorate the classroom, and to have a good time.
