The Center for the Development of Children
Laura's Penguins - Children Aged 48-60 Months
We have two Penguin rooms; one led by Anna and one by Laura. When there is a need in the community, we are able to split the two rooms into older and younger pre k rooms.
Both rooms prepare the children for their next step in their eduction career, but each has a focus for the developmental age of the children who make up the classroom.
Laura enjoys boating, exploring the beach, going to theater /dance shows and spending time with her husband and three children. Laura's philosophy in teaching children is “The classroom should be a safe and caring community where we learn, explore and play together.
Our Penguin room has a three day minimum enrollment policy.
