Plenty of room to run and
play!  There are several  
small houses, a few
slides, and some 'kid
friendly' swings,  as well
as props to encourage
social interactions and
'pretend' play.  Behind the
temporary white fence is
a large oversize sandbox
complete with digging
tools and trucks.  Right
now ants have taken up
residence there but once
we have rid the area of
the critters, the gate wil
come down.  Trees and a
covered patio provide us
with adequate shade
during the summer
months.
The Dramatic Play Center allows children to recreate the social roles that they see in their everyday lives.
The basic setup of the center is an environment that is very familiar to most children - the home.  However,
the Dramatic Play Center is versatile and may become a post office, restaurant, grocery store, or an office.  
Dress-up clothes, child-sized furniture, and various props are included in this center.
Each child has his/her own personal
cubbie unit in which to store his/her
belongings.  Personal records for each
child are stored in folders in the top portion
of each cubbie.  The bottom portion
contains a plastic box for storage of extra
change of  clothing as well as personal
bedding for naptime.
Greatest Resource uses a color coded
system to help the children learn
responsibility and to
encourage a sense
of belonging.  Upon enrollment each child
is assigned a color.  They will then have a
cup,hand towel, sheet, and blanket of that
color.  The
Parent Board with the weekly menu,
monthly newsletter and tidbits of news is
located to the left of the cubbie unit.  
Across from the Parent Board are
individual folders for newsletters, art
projects and anything else that needs to
go home.
CAUTION!  Hard Hat is recommended before entering our
construction zone.  This center provides children with
interesting construction materials for designing and
building.  It allows small groups of children to share
materials, work together to make designs, and work out
problems. Children learn about size, shapes,
measurements, distance, and other building skills.  The
Construction Zone includes a variety of wooden, cardboard,
and plastic blocks, Legos and Lincoln Logs, boxes, straws,
pens, pencils, paper, tools, vehicles, train tracks, road
signs, and other building related accessories.

Welcome to our preschool room!
HANDS-ON and CIRCLE TIME AREA
The Hands-On Center is stocked with many
different manipulatives that will enhance the
children's small motor skills, improve their
eye-hand coordination, and teach early math and
literacy concepts.

We start every morning in our circle time area.  Here
we listen to storybooks, go over the color of the day,
discuss the weather, share news with each other,
and explore the calendar.
SCIENCE and SENSORY CENTER
Peek-A-Boo  the Turtle  and Tic and  
Tac, our aquatic frogs, keep us
entertained watching them swim
and dive!  Our science center is
stocked with thermometers, scales,
measuring items, nature books
and other science related
materials.  We do simple science
experiements such as blowing a
balloon up with yeast or making
"blubber gloves" to see how some
animals stay warm in the winter.  
We use water to discover the
properties of everyday objects-will it
sink or float?  We bring in nature
items and examine them with
magnifying glasses.  We make
goop and playdough.  The activities
and possibilities are limitless!
DOES THIS LOOK LIKE A PLACE YOUR CHILD COULD BE HAPPY?

Sadly, Peek-A-Boo has moved on
