Our Sensory Table is used to explore various textured materials perfect for sifting, sorting, organizing, digging, and squishing (sand, rice, water, snow, bubbles, shaving cream, etc.).
Our Art Center is set up with an easel for painting masterpieces and numerous other art supplies to cultivate the creative process of preschool projects.
Our Science Center has materials used to explore the world around them. In this center the students will learn about animals, magnets, bugs, plants, weather, seasons, and more, through fun and safe experiments.
Our Block Area has open floor space to create models of anything of interest to the students. There are blocks of all shapes and sizes to use for construction. Included in this area are also cars, trucks, people and animal figures.
Our Music Center includes several different musical instruments for the students to use to create their own rhythms, form a band, and make up their own songs. Early exposure to music can help stimulate the development of the brain and it encourages self-expression in a fun and exciting way.
Our Library/Writing Center/Listening Center is a place used for literacy play. There is an assortment of age-appropriate books to develop early reading skills. In this quiet corner the students are able to “check-out” books and relax on (beanbags), listen to books on tape, and play phonics and literacy games to expand their vocabulary, reading, and writing skills.
Our Fitness/Movement Center is in addition to the gym/outdoor activities planned for each day. This center will include (jump ropes, stilts, balancing boards, taped pathways, beanbags, hopscotch mat, etc.) to develop large motor skills, coordination, strength, and flexibility.
Our Dramatic Play Area includes dress up clothes, props, dolls, action figures, puppets, (play kitchen), tool shed, and a two-story castle play area. Students can use fantasy directed play to explore feelings and create social situations. Through role-playing, they will engage in shared social problem solving and can learn about the emotions and responsibilities of others.
The purpose of our centers is to foster the natural curiosity and passion for learning in all of our students by appealing to their individual needs and interests.
