Who’s here? What’s today? Building French vocab. & awareness of self and others with our "Who’s here?" magnet board. 

Wiggle Songs: Songs & chants to build French vocab. and awareness of body, spatial, self, others.

We encourage and foster love of books and have them accessible to the kids all through explore time.

We encourage imagination and vocabulary learning with many fun educational materials such as potato heads, cootie bugs, shape tiles, toy cars, toy homes & figurines, farm & zoo animal figurines, and much more!
