Overview of 3-4 Classroom
We believe in children learning through play. All classrooms are child-centered and children learn skills through playing in “centers” such as blocks, science, reading, art, home living, sensory play, singing, and writing. The books Creative Curriculum, by Diane Dodge, is used as a reference.
