Our Learning Centers

Inside

Art and Music Centers

Our Art and Music Centers are carefully designed to allow children to have full access to a variety of materials encouraging them to freely explore and experiment.

Sensory Centers

Sensory activities promote exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore.
Our sensory tables (sand, water and play-dough) are open daily and thoughtfully set up each day for children to experience.

Block Corner

Our block center is fully stocked with unit blocks, large hollow blocks and multiple accessories to foster and extend creative play. As children observe, manipulate and build they are developing problem solving skills, large and fine motor skills, self expression and self esteem.

Dramatic Play

Dramatic play is an integral part of the developmental learning process., Our dramatic play centers include a toy kitchen, a multilevel indoor climber, and a variety of props, costumes and accessories. 

Science Center

The Science center is equipped with a variety of natural collections and  tools so children can freely explore many aspects of our natural world. Artifacts are often added to expand upon a current unit or theme.

Book Corner

Our Book Corner is one of our quiet areas. Children will find bookshelves, beanbag chair, rocking chair and a child sized couch.  Children are encouraged to enjoy a book independently or with a friend.
