• Recycle/Reuse         Reduce, Recylce, Reuse symbol

    We try our best to use real items for imaginative play and exploration in the classroom.  Before you throw something away think about us. We change out the areas in our room periodically throughout the year. Sometimes we have a doctor's office, construction area, post office, bakery, baby nursery, vet's office, pet store, etc.  We also love make art projects and explore textures and materials.  I have provided a list of some sample items that we like to collect or would like to find.  If you ever have a doubt, you can call me.
