Fall is a busy time. You may have your own kids heading back to school, have new families starting, perhaps you are introducing a new routine, or your might be adding a new educational component to your program. With these changes, and the busy holiday season around the corner, it's easy to start to feel overwhelmed and unorganized. To help you feel less overwhelmed, I've gathered up some of my favorite tips to help you ready your program for Fall!

The construction center, is often referred as the "block area"-It's a place for children to engineer new creations! In this area children are learning to manipulate new objects, and they are learning new math concepts such as size (Big & small), length, patterns and color. This learning space allows them to use their creativity to duplicate the world around them, it also provides them them social opportunities to cooperate and work together with their peers.
