Young children are experiencing rapid growth in the areas of physical, social, emotional, creative, and cognitive development. The program at the Children’s Center is designed to stimulate development in an integrated manner.
During the day, children have opportunities to participate in individual, small group, and large group activities. Our outdoor classroom provides many opportunities for learning as well. The curriculum is designed to meet the Pennsylvania state standards for Pre-K education.
Our open space classroom is divided into several activity areas for the children.
- Sand / Water
- Literature / Language
- Dramatic play
- Blocks / Construction
- Math / Computer
Each interest area contains materials that promote skill development, foster understanding, and introduce the child to new concepts. Additionally, the classroom provided opportunities to experiment, discover, and create. The preschoolers are in the same group each day they attend and thus learn to co-operate as a team in a small group setting.
