Miss IliseInclusive Classroom Development
Miss Ilise has began working at A Place to Grow in 2016 as a paraprofessional. Her interest in helping all children succeed in our classrooms has been a tremendous asset. She works with our teachers to develop alternative activities that work for all children. Her passion for developing an inclusive classroom has lead her to work on her BA in psychology.
It is important for young children to be in a consistent routine. After all, they can’t tell time, so they know what time it is based on a sequence of events. We make every effort to follow a consistent routine so children can anticipate the next activity.
Daily activities include:
- Gross Motor Time Inside and/or Outside
- Circle Time
- Morning and Afternoon Project
- Nap time
- Two Snacks and Lunch
Curriculum and learning opportunities for children are designed to meet the NH K-12 Curriculum Frameworks.
