Our experts designed our classrooms — and every activity and lesson — to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. Designated learning centers, such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, give children the opportunity for rich social play and self-initiated discovery. You’ll find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels, and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills. Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!
