Learning Centers

Children are invited to the many different learning centers for small and large group activities. Our learning centers are designed to encourage hands on exploration, communication, cooperation, creativity and learning. 

Reading Center

Introducing kids to literature in preschool supports kindergarten readiness, promotes early literacy and supports a love of language and reading. Children are encouraged to read books on their own in addition to our group reading sessions.

Dramatic Play Center

Through meaningful experiences in expressive play, young children develop positive, comfortable feelings about themselves. They develop socio-emotional skills by playing out situations from their own life or from pretend theme situations, which help them learn more about themselves, their friends and the world around them.

Art Center

Art provides a way of expressing human behavior and experience. The child's visual awareness of color, coupled with form and line, become a part of his or her everyday life and experience. Materials will be placed within reach in an effort to encourage young children to become involved in art projects.

Mail & Writing Center

The writing center focuses on reading, writing, listening and speaking. The kids can practice expressing themselves and their feelings while learning the basic domains of writing. Plus, they get to write and mail letters to friends and family members.

Blocks & Building Center

One of the children's favorite centers to learn in. Children can improve their motor skills, practice problem solving, and learn to work with their classmates while playing in a block learning center. Block play enables kids to explore their creative side by building unique structures and communities with blocks. Blocks also teach children basic engineering and architecture concepts.

Puzzles & Games Center

Our puzzles and games center provides an area for our investigators to practice their math and manipulatives. This center will help the children to further develop their fine motor skills and better understand beginning math concepts. They also practice their problem solving skills and improve their hand-eye coordination.

Science Center

Children are naturally curious about the world around them, by teaching science to preschoolers we can enhance their interest and help them learn to explore their environment. A science center will present opportunities for the children to learn and develop many concepts including; math, critical thinking, problem solving, literacy and language.
