We are excited to introduce a unique addition to Main Street Preschool this year. The Enrichment Room is a new learning center where all of the children have opportunities to work individually or in very small groups with Suzy Wyant, the Enrichment teacher. Mrs. Wyant is beginning her ninth year at Main Street Preschool, having worked previously as a classroom teaching assistant.
In the Enrichment Room, children fine-tune their emerging skills with hands-on materials that allow for exploration and discovery. Mrs. Wyant works closely with each teacher so that her activities support and extend the learning that is taking place in the classrooms. Much of the learning in the Enrichment Room this fall has focused on activities that help children build hand strength and fine motor skills–two areas that are crucial for developing the strength and coordination needed for handwriting.
