Our school uses a theme based curriculum to deliver age appropriate lessons, activities and crafts with an emphasis on play. The school consists of a three room cooperative learning center. Each room is set up for optimizing creative learning and play. Our main room includes a reading corner, book display, large play kitchen and housekeeping station, dress up area, and puppetry stations. Also, an area for our small blocks, doll houses and train table. Our back "block room" is an area for students to play with large blocks that promote creative and constructive play. This room is also used for group discussion, quiet reading time, and group music and games. The Kitchen is our third room where snack time is held. This room also features a paint station and a sensory table. Our kitchen and main room have student tables for craft stations and student center based activities
