This hands on active environment will encourage exploration and discovery. Activities will include creative expression, dramatic play, music and movement, large and small motor activities, early literacy, sensory activities, math readiness and outdoor play.The "Stay & Play" program will be directed by Karen Wenz and Beth Covino who have over 45 years of combined experience in early childhood education teaching and directing at various preschools.
