Here at the Su Casa office we're in full swing! This summer we've been busy collecting data and reinventing who we are as an organization. As we gear up for another semester of Adult English Classes and the third year of our Early Childhood Center we're seeing some new changes in our building!
During the first week in July, the classrooms we knew as our Su Casa Kids nursery rooms had their walls torn down by one man over the course of two days! Instead of three classrooms we now have one GIANT space, that will soon be our new Toddler Three classroom and a nursery room for Su Casa Kids to use.
A big empty room can be daunting when you're trying to envision how you'll use the space, but after multiple walk throughs, Early Childhood Director Amanda Wilkinson and her trusty Assistant Lilly Williams have a pretty good idea of what they want it to look like.
The room will be divided into seven "learning centers": a Music Center, Writing Center, Art Center, Reading area, Grocery Store Center, Engineering Center, and Tech center. The tech center is a new addition to the Toddler 3 classroom, which will include iStation, a bilingual interactive program that focuses on Bilingual Literacy and Mathematics. These centers are based on the High Scope Curriculum, that all of our classrooms follow. "We're utilizing the centers because they allow learning to go on during play and exposes the children to things they might not be exposed to at home" Wilkinson explains.
The projected completion date for this project is mid August, just in time for the new school year! Follow us on Instagram for weekly updates in our story!
We are so thankful for God's provision over this whole project. He has definitely helped us fit more inside our walls then we ever thought possible. We also want to thank YOU for your support! We seriously couldn't do it without you. Gracias y Dios te Bendiga!
