Campus LifeSpecial features at Helen Edwards Early Childhood Center will include: Kidsville, Library, Computer lab, P.E. motor lab, playground areas, stage, tricycle path, 6 portable activity centers, three-dimensional hall entrances, and cafeteria.
The main computer lab houses 25 individual workstations and is located in the Library. Computers are used to teach and improve basic reading and math skills.
P.E. and trikes helps students with agility, coordination, balance and strength. It also teaches kids how to share equipment. The students look forward to the days they come to the gym.
Kidsville is an unique educational environment which provides for the teaching of traditional academics through non traditional methods. Kidsville takes advantage of the latest technology to promote a fun learning experience and encourages students to learn about the world and the people around them. Hands on experiments allow students to embark on a scientific journey through interactive processes. The strategy of "no walls" truly creates an atmosphere of open discovery where students are only inhibited by their own imaginations.
In the library students are read fun and informative books. The kindergartners learn Science and Social Studies. We also read books and play fun learning apps on the iPad with the Apple TV.
This class is a fun and exciting place for the kids to learn very important gross and fine motor skills for their growing bodies. We do activities to help with balance, hand & eye coordination, and board work (which helps in learning how to write letters) just to name a few. The students look forward to attending this class 2-3 times a week.
