The preschool classroom creates an atmosphere in which attention is given to individual learning styles through integrated, thematic instruction and developmentally appropriate teaching. Children learn to explore, create, and discover the world around them. Teachers create an environment that permits children to play alone, with a friend, or in groups. Play guides children to share with others, be helpful, take turns, listen, follow directions and class rules, use words, and express feelings. Children are able to enjoy playing with friends, completing an activity, using good manners, accepting limits set by the teachers, and helping to keep the classroom orderly and congenial.
