Child's Choice Classroom Rotations

Children’s attention spans are short. They need a constant exchange between passive and active activities. At Conway Daycare, LLC, children move between enrichment activities that work in concert with their ability to maintain attention.

Brain development research findings indicate that the brain is more receptive to information and pays closer attention to information when things are new and different. When the brain grows accustomed to a particular activity or space, it has a tendency to tune it out—it
blocks learning.

According to Dr. Gold Scheible, former director of the Brain Research Institute at UCLA, unfamiliar activities are the brain’s best friend. Researchers believe that children placed in novel and stimulating environments, but not overstimulating, are more focused and more likely to process the information they are learning. Our enriching classrooms are designed to encourage learning.

Dr. Kay Albrecht, author and advocate for quality care and education, says that children benefit from a wide variety of experiences: child-initiated, teacher-directed, large group, small group, indoor, outdoor, quiet, and active. The center's unique approach to early childhood education offers children all of this in a highly enriched environment.

Children ages 2 and older begin their day in their primary classroom. They are encouraged to select from a menu of child-initiated activities as they socialize with their peers and with their teacher.

Choice is a critical component of the classroom. Choices allow children to match their instructional goals with their personal goals, and that provides children with a strong motivation to participate. It allows children to feel more positive about their work. Positive feelings result in an increase in body chemicals that in return, increase the potential for memory. We certainly want children to remember what they learn.

When children move about their primary classroom to participate in activities in the enrichment areas, the teachers move with them, constantly facilitating play and encouraging conversation with open-ended questions. This ensures continuity of care and keeps children from
feeling stressed.

In the enrichment areas, the children will participate in teacher-directed lessons led by the teachers. Children are allowed to practice and reflect on what they have learned before moving to another area.

According to Dr. Pam Schiller, practice and reflection are critical steps in learning. Each step plays a role in assisting the brain in its attempt to process information and store it in long-term memory.
