Classroom Guides - Crawler Room (New Berlin)
Return to Our Curriculum Main Page
Welcome to the Crawler Room
We would like to welcome you to the crawler room. In this room, we work on large motor skills such as walking (if not already) and small motor skills such as using a spoon. Social skills are developed by group snack, lunch, art, and reading time. Children experience a wide variety of options during big room time and outside time.
In the crawler room, we encourage the use of a sipper cup and trying new foods. Although we do have a daily schedule, times may vary due to the children's schedules, inclement weather, etc. We are always available for any questions or concerns that you may have. We look forward to caring for your child.
Hi my name is Alyssa. I have worked at Learning Edge since 2015. I am currently a college student at Alverno studying nursing. Prior to working at Learning Edge I worked at Helium Trampoline Park for the past two years and will continue to work there on the weekends. I am the oldest of five children and I love being around kids! In my free time I enjoy going shopping, bonfires and being with friends and family. I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know your children!
My name is Michelle Ozick. I have four children-Gage, Josh, Abby, and Autumn. I have been in the childcare field for over twenty years. I look forward to working with a great group of people here at Learning Edge, and getting to know each of the families and their children. Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I will always say that I have the best job in the world! I learn something new everyday and I get to play. Thank you so much for sharing your children with me. At home, I love to go on outings to the pool, park, zoo and museum with my family. To relax, I like to listen to music and read.

Please make sure you have:
- One set of extra clothes, appropriate season

Cognitive & Sensory
Through the use of finger plays and songs we enhance the children's motor as well as cognitive skills. They learn simple things like waving, clapping, and peek-a-boo. Through art projects, we enhance sensory skills such as finger painting, painting with brushes, using stampers and playing with different textures (for example: cool whip, water and soap, and pudding).
