A Typical Day

"a child learning to put on/take off an item of clothing whether it is during potty training or in the dress up area
a teacher sitting with a child and reading a book
a water table filled with gadgets to enhance their senses and science/math skills
children discovering the force of gravity in the block area and giggling as their tower comes down
smiling faces lining up to go to our large indoor playspace for playtime
children learning how to recognize their names and different letters "
