Practical Life

Simple everyday tasks have complex aims: to develop order, concentration, coordination and independence. Mastering these tasks play a critical role in future intellectual growth.

Everyday life skills, social graces, and movement are taught through interesting and fun activities such as pouring, spooning, tweezing and sorting. These tasks help develop eye-hand coordination and small muscle control, which is the foundation for writing. Gaining an awareness and responsibility for their environment is taught through activities such as cleaning, watering plants, returning materials to their original location and moving about their surroundings courteously.
