An important part of any school is to have activities that foster the children's education. Here are some examples of the children enjoying each center.

The School Day

Our Program is a center based program. Each day your child's class will move from center to center with the same teacher and children throughout the day. All children are given the opportunity to utilize the equipment and materials available in each center (there is approximately 30 minutes spent in each center).

Fine Motor
In this center, the children will use their fine motor skills to button, lace, snap, zipper. Large and small puzzles are used along with sorting color games. We have two computers which allows the children to work independently. All learning CD's are age appropriate. Group games with the Teacher are also incorporated in this center. This will help the children to follow directions and allow them to sit in a group setting. The Teacher also utilizes this center to observe their students, this will prepare them for parent/teacher conferences held in February.
