Outdoor Play Area
This large central undercover area consists of a large sand area complete with climbing walls, a paved section for tricycle riding and various other activities and a large synthetic grassed area with an adventure playground.
Consisting of all the normal kitchen essentials, this area is used to cook and prepare foods as part of the children’s learning program. Those children who remain at school in the afternoon also take their afternoon snack there.
Two observation rooms overlook each classroom. Parents, university staff and students can observe the teachers and children at work unseen by the children through the mirrored glass.
The Child Care Center is equipped with two classrooms. One is utilized for teaching English while the other is used for Arabic. Each classroom has many learning areas which contain an abundance of manipulative resources. Each classroom also has an attached wet area with child sized toilets and basins.
This large empty space is used for exercise. Various activities are undertaken using materials such as balls, beanbags, hoops and scooter boards.
This room is used for parent-teacher meeting as well as for various lectures conducted by the Early Childhood Education Department. Occasionally it is also used for children’s activities.
This area contains the coordinator and director’s offices as well as a waiting area.
In the area parents sign their children in and out for the day. Various program information can be found on the walls and a photo display of the previous month’s activities can be viewed as well as other information of interest, as displayed on the notice board. Electronic doors separate this area from the children’s section of the building.
