Weekly themes centered on letters, numbers, shapes and color recognition involve the use of toys, games, puzzles and art materials to explore different ways for children to play and use their imaginations. This program also encourages creative expression through crafts, music and dramatic play as well as promotes the development and enhancement of age-appropriate social skills.
