A day at the sprinklers

A day at the sprinklers

by Jacqueline Tovar, Centro Infantil Consuelo Lee Corretjer

At Centro Infantil we focus on the importance of play. Now that the weather is hot, we have taken the kids to the sprinklers. They enjoy running around the park and talking to each other. It is funny how they discussed what they did over the weekend or what they are going to do that day. Children always have fun stories and just listening to their conversation makes me realize how much these children have grown since they started at Centro Infantil.

It fills us with joy knowing that we play an important part in their life and how we help them develop day by day. They also helps us grow as people. We are glad to take part in all these children’s lives and seeing them run around in the sprinklers made us see how good of a job we are doing.

On Friday June 24, 2016 seven children from Centro Infantil Consuelo Lee Corretjer graduated. They are now ready to start a new journey in a Kindergarten classroom. We are glad that we where able to play an important role in these children’s life. We enjoyed having them with us and giving them all the help and knowledge they needed to be ready to start this new journey.

Recycling work at Centro Infantil

Recycling work at Centro Infantil

The head-start Vejigante classroom at Centro Infantil Consuelo Lee Corretjer finished their recycling learning theme this Friday. The teacher invited the parents to come in and look at the work that the students had worked on throughout the course, as they learned the importance of recycling. They made many things out of egg cartons, napkin rolls, milk caps and many more. They made little cars out of napkin rolls and milk caps; as well they made turtles out of plastic plates and paper. The children decorated the windows with flowers made out of carton as well they made a sun. We are glad the children have learned to recycle as well as on how they can make objects out of these materials.

Today our children from Centro Infantil Daycare went to visit the Children’s Museum at Navy Pier. We are glad that we had parents go with their children allowing them to have a learning experience. They where able to explore all the exhibits and play in each one of them for the amount of time they wanted. This field trip helped them develop and practice social emotional, cognitive, and motor skills as well it helped them exercise because they where moving a lot. All the teachers and mothers enjoyed seeing the children having fun and being themselves. Overall it was a great experienced because the children had fun and to us seeing the children happy makes us feel happy for being part of this educational field trip.

Springtime at Centro Infantil Consuelo Lee Correjer!

Now that we are enjoying spring weather, we take our children outside. Today, classroom Coqui went to the park. It is important for our children to have fun and enjoy time to play. Teachers Maritza and Alma walk the children three blocks to the park. Upon arrival they observe the park so it’s safe for the children. They sit down and discuss the rules for play- how they should go down the slides and to be careful when they are running. Our children enjoy the playground and they learn to cooperate by taking turns when using the slides and see-saw.
