                 Learning environments should stimulate               children's cognitive development

" The TCC preschool classroom earned a perfect score in the QRIS Standard for environments."


Dramatic Play

  • Children practice language and develop social skills while pretending and acting out roles.

  • Children attempt to understand what happens in their world and develop new knowledge.

  • Children should be free to use materials in their own way.


Language Develops Reasoning Skills

  • Children learn best from repeated hands on engaging experiences that are enhanced by staff communications

  • Children develop concepts through their senses and manipulating objects allowing them to organize their thoughts

  • Children link new knowledge to previous experiences and develop vocabulary

Cozy Area and Literacy Corner

  • Early childhood prepares children for lifelong literacy

  • Staff plan regular story times and read books spontaneously

  • Children are exposed to a large and varied collection of books and additional materials such as puppets and flannel boards

Block Area

  • Children build various types of structures with the complexity changing based on interest, age and ability

  • Blocks are building materials that do not restrict children by having to fit pieces together in a certain way

  • Children learn math, science and social skills
