Building Centers in a Daycare Setting
Whether a daycare center or a family daycare home, setting
up areas of interest promotes active learning. When planning your
areas, keep in mind your own favorite play experiences as a child.
For small daycare homes, you can set up smaller areas, or alternate areas
each week. Your kitchen table could become the Art Area; your living
room the Dramatic Play area. These areas are easily set up indoors
and out...have fun with them! You may find that one or two areas
are favorites and you may choose to have it set up all the time.
Some you will have set up for a day or two; some for a week or two!
Keep it interesting for the children, and offer a wide variety of materials
for them to explore, transform, and combine.
