At Ashley and Friends Playschool we incorporate the philosophy of S.P.I.C.E. Which is Social development, Physical development, Intellectual development, Creative development, Emotional development.
The reasons we incorporate them is:
Social- to have social skills such as interactions and conflict resolution.
Physical- to have activities that promote physical development and strengthen their gross (large muscles) and fine (small muscles) motor development.
Intellectual- to build knowledge that they may already know or are wanting to know. Along with learning number and color recognition, name recognition, language and science/mathamatical skills.
Creative- to use creativity as they learn and play. This could be as simple as drawing a picture or using blocks to build a free standing structure.
Emotional- to develop emotional skills such as self-confidence, resiliency, empathy, and self-awareness.
