Classrooms



Our spacious classrooms are arranged in centers so that children can freely explore the wide variety of learning materials and activities that are available in each interest area. Our learning themes and materials are changed monthly. Children move around  the  classroom  at  their  own  pace. 

class 2

The Pre I class  plays in  one  of  our  classrooms  and  the  Pre II and Pre K classes share the second classroom. This mixed-age grouping is most beneficial to children learning through our Developmental Curriculum.

play time

Learning Time, "Free Play", is at least 90 minutes long so that children have time to explore one center in depth or investigate several areas before clean up.

children first's outdoor play area, located between a grand old train engine and a beautiful pond, is a large fenced outdoorsplayground with age appropriate play equipment including a sand box, a domed climber, swings, a slide, a raised platform, balance beam, and climbing wall as well as riding, pushing and pulling toys designed for active play
