When children play with manipulatives, like blocks and puzzles, or use the sensory table, they are developing their logic and reasoning skills, hand-eye coordination, patterns, and more. When a teacher is present for those activities, they can help students learn about balance and gravity when their tower tilts too far and falls over. This will also enhance their vocabulary and set the foundation for future STEM activities.
UPDATE: The Durham PreK Governance Committee voted on August 19, 2021 to waive parent fees for the 2021-2022 school year. The Durham PreK Application is still open! Click here to access the application information and materials.
