Self-serving involves the development of motor skills such as holding utensils and passing food. It also involves social skills such as good manners, learning to share, and to care for others at the table. These skills benefit preschool aged children's development and independence in eating at family meals.

Here Comes Santa Claus!

Today we had a special visitor come to the Academy of Harpeth Village! The students had the opportunity to see Santa Claus! Some friends were skeptical at first, but warmed up to Santa after awhile! They had so much fun getting to talk with Santa and get their picture taken! Thank you, Santa, for coming to visit us! 

On Our Way To See Santa!

Sensory Time!

Sensory time is an important role in development. When you talk about senses, most kids over a certain age can rattle them off without problem: sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste. Any and all of these can be incorporated into sensory play. At the Academy we like to encourage sensory time by letting them explore and create which gives us the opportunity to discuss what is happening at any given moment.

Outside Time!

On a playground, not everyone gets to go down the slide first. Going to the playground with your children is not just about running around and being active, but it's also about learning social skills, executive functions, and behavioral skills as well through play.
