children using thermometer to measure temperature of water

Two children wonder what the temperature of the water is and use a thermometer to find out. They also measure how tall the water is in the container.

Lead Teacher: Andromahi Harrison 

The Leapfrog room, a classroom of sixteen three, four, and five year olds. All of the classrooms in our center use the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum focuses on seven domains which include Social-Emotional, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, the Arts, and Physical development.

With the help of SAU student employees, we strive to make your child's experience in the room an experience where they can learn, thrive, build relationships, feel comfortable and respected through out their time with us. We feel it important for everyone who enters our room to have a meaningful learning experience including our parents and university students. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for more information about the teachers.

As part of our center's philosophy, we each have goals to help us continue to grow as teachers. We feel this is important to enhance our teaching and teach to the individual child. One of our goals was to keep a blog to be able to share what we are doing in the classroom and share more of what we have learned in the coming years. Please follow us on www.sauchildrenscampus.wordpress.com and enjoy our current happenings.

Feel free to stop in at any time with any questions!
