OUR WENATCHEE CENTER
TEAMS Learning Center | Wenatchee accepts children one month through five years old in an array of class options. We are open Monday through Friday 8am to 9pm year-round. We offer baby classes, early learning classes, bonus hours, evening classes, and an outdoor pre-kindergarten class. Each class is designed for engaging students in hands-on learning through child-led, intentional, play. We believe in play with purpose!
We focus our curriculum on meeting the five pillars of early learning: social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical development. With each program, story, activity, and toy we offer to each child, we strive to meet the need for intentional, child-initiated, play with purpose! Take a peek at a sample selection of our curriculum and menu at TEAMS Wenatchee.
Everyone is welcome at TEAMS Learning Center! Families of students are welcome to stay and play for free. Or, if you just can’t get enough of TEAMS, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities in the classroom and outside. Or maybe you just need three hours without kids - we are here for you!
EARLY LEARNING CLASS SCHEDULE
Greet families and children as the doors open. Each day we start with gathering activities such as song and games with all of our ages combined. Parents are always welcome to join us.
Child-initiated, hands-on learning, through purposeful play in dramatic play, blocks, science, manipulatives, music, sensory and play dough on the activity table. Infants and toddlers get special activities brought in to enjoy and explore in their space free of small, unsafe objects.
SIGN-IN & CALENDAR
Circle time activities and welcoming our day. We sing daily songs, check the weather and practice our names.
HAND WASHING & YOGA
Join together to move our bodies. One teacher will help students wash hands for snack. Start with big movements and slow down to calming yoga and deep breathes.
We wash hands and clean the tables, then we offer healthy and hearty snacks. The children actively take part in the preparation as they practice self-help skills.
OUTSIDE LEARNING CENTERS
Explore our outside space and outdoor learning activities such as bikes, mud, and sand play.
During center time we offer children seats at the activity table for a teacher-lead, process art lesson.
DIAPERING & POTTY-TRAINING
We care for and coach each child though their potty training and changing process.
Though we clean as we play through out the day, at “clean-up” time we look all around for things out of place and working as a “TEAM” to clean everything.
MUSIC & MOVEMENT
We gather to dance and move our bodies. We sing songs, do finger plays, following simple directions and having fun getting all of our energy out!
To close out our day we end with some interactive stories. As parents come in, they can join our story time as we reflect on what great fun we had learning.
