Dean College Children’s Center will host an Exploration Open House on August 14, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Parents of preschool children ages 2 to 6 years are encouraged to stop by during exploration hours, bring their child to explore the school, and learn about our program.
Innovative and progressive, the school is NAEYC accredited and well known in the community for an excellent preschool experience. Dean Children’s Center has an adult to child ratio of 1:5 and has credentialed teachers as well as teachers-in-training. The center has a professional, caring environment where young children learn through hands-on exploration and enjoy enrichment programs in science, puppetry, music and dance.
The school uses a developmental approach to education which reflects current early education research in child development and peer conflict resolution. “We are a regional resource to parents and educators on peer conflict resolution in young children and our lab school is a demonstration site for best practices in early education of children” states Director Faith Nickolas. An NAEYC Accredited program, the Children’s Center serves as an inspiring environment for children and a lab school for Early Childhood Education at Dean College. Applications are now being accepted.
Dean College Children’s Center located at 144 School Street in Franklin. For more information, call 508-541-1598.
