ANISHAN ACTIVITY CENTER

Preschool classrooms are usually organized around interest areas or learning centers. These defined areas allow children to play and explore materials with the guidance of the teacher either individually or in small groups. Low dividers often separate the centers, but children move freely among them.

Young children learn best by experimenting with their environment through hands-on activities and play, which is why learning centers are such a vital part of the preschool classroom. Using learning centers to give children the hands-on experiences and play opportunities they need is important, but there are a variety of factors that influence which learning centers would work best for your space, how you should set them up, and the materials you should include in each. To help you identify those factors and make the process of setting up your preschool centers a little easier, we've included a list of learning centers you can choose to incorporate in your preschool classroom. Be sure to click on each center's "How to Set Up..." page for more information about size and location guidelines, storage solutions, furniture options, and a list of suggested materials for each center.
