Children choose from a large variety of activities in the classroom, many relating to theme or unit of study. Centers include but not limited to: Science Table, Dramatic Play Area of a Kitchen and Dress up, Sensory Table, Construction Zone, Reading Area, Writing Area, and Art Area. Centers change as the interest of the children change and topics are worn out.

Circle Time
