After a great performance at their second quarter fruitful event, the caterpillars and butterflies enjoyed extra time in free choice centers this week.
Free choice centers are when the saints are allowed to choose the toys they wish to play with in an area of the room or playground that gives them the opportunity to create and use their imagination.
These centers give the child control, allowing for new experiences with a variety of toys.
This concept allows for self choice in a child that is continually told what to do. It also helps to create independence in a child with separation anxiety. In addition, these centers help a shy child become the confident captain of their ship.
This play time of the day, puts our saints in charge and helps to create independent, humble, imaginative, and confident individuals.
