Rosa Parks Early Childhood Center is filled with such wonder and awe. From the teaching staff, to the children, to the thoughtfully planned rooms, to documentation filled walls, and much more.
I wanted to share just a glimpse into the overall rooms and share some of the defining details that truly stand out in this building.
Rosa Parks Early Childhood Center serves children ages 3-4 and is partnered with CAP and Union Public Schools.
Notice the variety of Loose Parts all around the construction area. The use of mirrors hanging brings a whole new view to children. The addition of a light and shadow area into construction provides opportunities to combine light and building. So many intricate details planned with the child in mind!
The ateliers are filled with wonderful materials that are accessible to children to create! They spend much time at the beginning of the year and throughout to introduce and set up invitations for them to EXPLORE! The addition of Loose Parts and natural materials for collage is evident throughout the rooms. Displayed in such a way to calls children to come create.
One of the most important areas in an early childhood classroom! The great space they dedicate to this area shows what an emphasis is put on make-believe play! Notice more Loose Parts arranged for the children to come utilize. Lots of fabric is displayed so children have the opportunity to create their own costumes!
Light and Shadow
Playing with lights, colors, and shadows is something these children experiment with on a daily basis. Notice how they use a light projector and light table! Loose Parts again displayed in these areas for building, patterning, and so much more.
LOVE the spools used as a storage space for beads that they can string onto wires.
Messaging areas are found in several places throughout the rooms as they integrate them into construction and dramatic play as well as on their own. A large variety of sketching and drawing materials provided to activate that creativity and love for writing!
