A Day at Baan Dek
Other Good Things
Every day is the same, and every day is different. Very young children thrive on consistency and routine, so every time they walk into the classroom, the materials are in the same place, they know what to expect from their day.
Children might start out with something meditative to ease into their day
Or they might jump in, beginning with their most recent, most challenging work.
Children receive presentations
and work independently.
There is a great flow of concentration. Sometimes it looks like hard work
and sometimes it looks like fun.
Children are developing fine motor control and manual dexterity
and gross motor control and balance.
Children examine and are in touch with the world
discovering how thing work
exploring differences and similarities.
Caring for their environment
and for themselves.
Children learn from their own work
and from observing others.
You never know what today will bring.
This is a short video of a morning at Baan Dek. You’ll see from when the teachers first arrive, though the children going outside to play. Enjoy!
