The ECS Preschool has introduced a Learning Lab for students. The Lab provides a center-based atmosphere for students to gain skills in phonics, language development, speech, early literacy, and imagination. Centers include a computer center, listening center, discovery zone, reading corner, and learning games. The technology used in the Learning Lab enhances the quality of instruction students receive at ECS. It also allows teachers the ability to work with students in small groups to target specific skills, and better meet the specific needs of individual students.
In the Development Room, children feel free to naturally express themselves while participating in hands-on activities in the different centers. This type of play allows the children to be themselves, more open and engaged, promoting the development of social skills and relationships. In the Dramatic Play Center, children learn to negotiate different roles and themes while acting out real life and imaginary situations. The Home-Living and Transportation Centers are among the children's favorites. Of course, they all enjoy our Jungle Gym which is fun and helps the children build their gross motor skills.
