Charles Towne Child Development Center

We are a small preschool that encourages children to learn in a fun, engaging way.

More fun from last week!

Hanukkah week was tons of fun! The children had a sensory table, a visitor read to them and bring them jelly doughnuts, had a storywalk, had Mitzvah Moose join in on the classroom activities, made edible dreidels and the preschoolers went on a fun, festive field trip!

Scarecrow Week was a rainy week but we still had a great time! We brought the outside in, learned about fall, scarecrows and even had a special visitor for Veteran's Day!

We learned all about germs last week. They pretended to be doctors and nurses, enjoyed a soapy sensory table,made soap and learned about the importance of washing hands! Let's stay healthy y'all!!

With respect, honor and gratitude- thank you veterans! Here are our very own airman, sailors and their families. Thank you for your service!! 🇺🇸
