Parents will be able to visit with the staff to learn about the educational activities that enrolled children participate in that enhance skills in literacy, pre-reading, math, science, fine and gross motor, thought processing and socialization; take a tour of the classroom or family playgroup room to check out the learning stations and the equipment that children will have an opportunity to use.
