Learning at the Lighthouse

BLOCK CENTER: Strengthens large and small muscle coordination and provides opportunity for understanding of shapes and size discrimination (pre-writing, math and science readiness).

HOUSEKEEPING CENTER: Allows for role play, language expression, creativity and socialization.

ART: Provides a variety of materials and experiences for self-expression, understanding of colors, shapes and textures.

WRITING CENTER: Allows opportunity for children to draw, color, and practice using various writing utensils (reading and writing readiness).
