Peaches in Dirt Mountain

The bumpy ground of KMS’s Dirt Mountain is a great challenge for our toddlers’ gross motor skills.  They use all their bodies to balance, climb up, and slide down!

Toddler Explorations Outside

Our priority is to let children follow their curiosities, and discover the world around them. With El Nino this season, this has meant lots of stomping in puddles and experimenting with wet and dry sand.

Peach Spanish Program

The Peaches (Infants and Toddlers) have been enjoying their mornings with Maria Luna.  The older children greet her with “Hola!” while the younger ones wave excitedly.  They know soon they will be immersed in a colorful, rich and vibrant world of Latin America.  As soon as Maria Luna brings out a book or starts the radio the children will sit or stand eagerly waiting for what’s next.

Helping Friends

One of KMS’ core values is that the child is competent.  In Peach Palace (infant/toddler program), children do not only play together and wait for a turn, but they also help friends and teachers.

Giuliana rode on a tricycle but pedaling was still a challenge for her.  Parker-Simone was observing her friend trying to move the tricycle.  A teacher asked “Parker-Simone, do you want to help Giuliana by pushing the tricycle?”  The picture above was her answer!

Cloths Exploration

After Claudia and Tyler individually explored the transparent canopy by using all their senses, they both figured out that they can see their friend through the curtain.  They played peek-a-boo with each other and their joyful  laughter invited other Peaches to join as well.

The wonder of light and shadow is all around us.  Children encounter the beauty and perplexity of light daily and begin to form knowledge through their interactions.  One morning, the sun was streaming into the main room of the Peaches.  Cormac was bathed in sunlight, and stopped to observe the light hitting his hand.  This moment, along with many others, lead the Peach teachers to set up provocations with light.  Please enjoy some stories of our encounters with light by clicking here.
