Whether you have a large dedicated classroom, or you have a small in-home learning environment, dividing your space into learning centers can be very beneficial to young learners.
From Art to Dramatic Play (and everything in between) these free print ready Center Signs make it easy to label your learning environment. These cute signs support children as they are planning their play and help them to figure out where they can find their favorite learning materials and toys.
These signs also include a brief statement with a few things children learn in each space (If you are looking for an editable set you can purchase them in our store here). This is a good reminder for the adults working with children as well as a fun and easy way to communicate to visitors what children are learning as they play.
