My Students

Our students from our program are individuals from families that are under 100% poverty. Our program is a free service to these children and their families. Our program is a NAEYC accredited center, and we are rated level 4 with Paths to Quality.

My students have a great desire to learn about the world around them.

We provide great opportunities to make learning fun with hands-on experiences in learning areas. Children gain skills through the areas of social skills, mathematics, literacy, language, approaches to learning, science, and more.

My Project

The items in this project will extend my students' learning while playing and exploring outside. They will be able to extend their pretend play, social skills, and knowledge about nature. These items will extend the learning opportuniites for our outside environment so they can learn through sensory play by using water and bubbles.

My students love exploring outside!

My students go outside daily, and I want them to be able to gain amazing experiences that extend the desire of exploration and learning about the world around them. These experiences will help them in gaining an appreciation for nature and a desire to spend time outdoors.
